That is one tight little package, nice work!
This looks amazing been following it and you certainly have a knack for making it look very sleek. Can't wait to see what you do with the outer shell!
You'd never know unless told, looks very good.
It's not a big update, just some photos of the assembly in the cube : it fits !
For the moment I'm working on the top of the case, I cut all isn't necessary to let the air circulate.
Soon some news !
That is looking great!
I would happily have that in my house.
you painting the exteria love the work mate !
looks really nice!
it is a shame that the case is not transparent to show all the work you've done inside
It's been a while now since my last update !
I was really busy with my work, with this
to this :
Big pressure inside ! But now it's done so I can breath and post some news
Ok, so now just a little update before a big one, I work on the mettalic part inside the plexi cube
As I cut many surface, I must re-rivet the part which serves to hold in place
As I decided to keep the apple and illuminated in white, I cut the mettalic part, just behind the other apple on the plexi.
The holes to let in the jigsaw
and after a little filling
That's it ! So nothing really amazing, but just wait the big one about the work on the plexi part which I have totally modified !
amazing work! this is by far THE best Cube mod I have ever seen!!
what kind of metal are you using to manufacture custom parts you've made? aluminum? link to where I can buy some?
Tks a lot for the compliment !
Yes this is aluminum, I use the alu of my FD Array case, so I think it's not the cheaper you can find
truly spectacular metalwork!
can't wait to see whats next!
I love the designs of the apple cases and love modding existing cases.
The thing is that with a modification build you are locked down to the design of the original case or what ever you are using be it a toaster or an Imac or old pc case. You have to make the hardware fit in, where as when making a scratch build you can make it to fit the hardware.
Keep up the good work.
Just gotta keep drawing it out dont ya? Imma find that Lawyer that Cheaps hired...
havent looked at this log for a while, nothing to see here... Kidding! looking REALLY good!! :roll:
@ALL: I really appreciate that you appreciate my work
End of the teaser (I think you've waited long enough)
First, this is the cut I need to do to realise the entire assembly of the cube
(this two holes are used to fix the anti-vandal switch'support)
And the chassis almost finish, just need to do some finishing and be painting
On the last we can an "accessorie" I create to fix the AC/DC entry of the picoPSU
The next pictures arrives, the time to reduce and host !
To broke this massive visual of the cube I cut the same existing cut on the bottom to let trought the cables, on each side
the first !
the second !
and the third !
Then I cut this news feets a little too high
The I cut the top of the cube, I remove surfaces as much as possible to increase the convection power of the cube
Now the switch's emplacement
Easy system to fix this support, I drill 2mm holes and heat 3mm bars to be sealed in the plastic
The next with the paint arrives
the next and end with the paint !
Aller suite et fin avec la peinture :
the cube entirely sand with the P240 paper
The cube fully assembled
Need to do a little P1000 sanding and some polishing and this part will be finishing.
That's it for today !!
OH GOD , Why is this build soo HOT !!!!!!
