Hello, my name is Erich and i am proudly starting my first actual worklog in Bit-tech. The site that inspired me in entering the casemod world back in 2003. This year i won two casemodding contests here In Brazil. They both needed to have a consistant document on how the casemodding would be constructed. The first one was "Hephaestus Project" (wich has a worlog here on bit tech) and the second one is... The contest left me wich very tight schedule. Just 6 days to build a casemod from scratch. What's worse: the case should be build LIVE on the brazilian version of the CAMPUS PARTY (wich was from feb 11 to feb 16). _____________________________________________ Last Update: More info: page 2 post #34 _____________________________________________ Updates: 02-march-08 - Building in the "Campus Party Brazil 2008" - Project start (improvement) 07-march-08 - Front panel finished - page 2 23-march-08 - Front lock finished - page 2 post #33 01-april-08 - Frontal intake - page 2 post #34 _____________________________________________ So here are some of the aspects of the project itself: This is the project with sideviews for the sponsors Although the project was first designed to be red, the aproved color was blue. The picture above shows the case in the "openned" position, so the user could reach the insides of it. The cover that is in back is the main cover and the front piece is a "lock" to that cover. Because the sponsors wanted something to call in attention, the case was made HUGE. So huge that in the end of the event it couldn't fit on my compact car. It didn't pass through its doors... because i had so little time do build it on the evend i had all the main acrilyc pieces laser cut. But another problem was that the laser cutting is VERY slow (not so slow as cutting it by hand BTW), so i had it phases. Anyway, this was my stand: Well... part of it anyways... If you take a closer look, you'll see tha case in the mockup phase behind me for adjust purposes. Even lasercut pieces need some adjusts, and not ALL the pieces were lasercutted And here is how it ended on the CPbr 08: I really need to say that the purpose of the stand was the SHOW. Not actually the case done itself. So, for the sake of the time i had some minor details sacrificed as you can see. the front side need to be redone, which is btw the first update on this project The guy's name besides me is Horacio (i am in the light green shirt). This one helped me a lot in the building of the case. In fact he had most of the pieces done at feb 14 at 3:00 am. He worked all night to help me. Thanks Horacio a lot! This photo is also good for you to have an idea how big the case is. And how hot it was down there... Now i know why hell should be hot... Please Leave your comments, critics and such.
