ahhh, I see it too ^
What? The freaky blue glow, or the design of it?
@Danitgeek - There's room for 140x2s... Just sayin'.
well hello there, guess I missed the start of this contest then eh...
Nice to see the model getting some use, although seems a few complaints about it.. Ah well can't please everyone.
I'll fire up sketchup and give it a go during next week...unless anyone has any problems with me entering?
Well guys I said I would enter but truth is I am too busy just now and have not found time to get started yet. So I think I will pass on this one.
What I will do instead is remind you all that as always I am available to sketchup any components you may need for your models. So feel free to request.
@craigr1982, of course not, have fun!
@Cuzza, as always, thank you for your help!
Im going to post what i was doing before it was decided that the 'chassis' had to be kept in tact. I wouldnt have time to finish or start again anyway. Everytime i try to commit to one of these comps, work goes manic.
So heres where i was:
Maybe next time work will be a little kinder. Good luck to those that enter though.
I like tha white one, it looks like a lab instrumentation
Agreed ^ great idea with hot swaps on top
@1384 - I'd say you used enough haf to be in. There's so few entries that you have a better than 50% chance of winning. I like the white one best too. It reminds me of my "portable" commodore 64. All it needs is a removable facecover/keyboard.
-Oh, Lord! The gears are turning...
Anyone poked Bit about running a blurb on the front page yet? If turnout gets any lighter, it will become a 'post something and win instantly' contest.
I knew I forgot something ^
Totaly agree .... that would be deadly awesome
Nice work 13eightyfour I have to admit the white one reminds me of a fan heater
I might still be able to take part in this contest... just need to find the time for it!
I should be able to get stuck into it after this weekend when work stops being so manic
Awesome! we look forward to seeing what you guys design
haven't had much time to model, here's what i got so far :/
Nice one Dark
Here is a little teaser, I started it 20 minutes ago. Hope I'll have the time to finish it
I gotta agree on this, though I'm hoping that plenty of fellow Bit-Techers (-ists?) are, like myself, still working on somethin... perhaps you just work too darn fast Cheaps? Not that its a bad thing; your jokes about covering up that ugly front have been keeping me laughing all week
Looking back now I'd missed the part about keeping the chassis intact.. I'd planned using a Kammtail design, cutting the rear down so the top slanted:
Oh well, back to the drawingboard!
Maybe next contest could be a cut-down contest, there are so many cool designs along that theme coming on BT these days.
Haven't had enough time yet to really get into it, but here's a quick concept image of Mirage:
The idea is to have a full ATX motherboard tray obscured by the second mATX tray that's behind a window. Given enough optical tricks, you can appear at a LAN with your empty case, hook a monitor up and start gaming anyway
Alternatively, you could install a secondary (mATX) system in the tray behind the window, but that's not nearly as fun.
Here is where I am so far. I wanted to mod it using the Nautilus theme (from Jules Verne book) ... but I'll never have enough time for that. Changed for a more "classic" mod
