^What they said, with a few extra Woooooodleywhoooooohas.
Thanks IcyAero, I use 240 grit wet & dry to get out the deep scratches then I use 320 grit Wet & Dry in opposite directions to remove the scratches from the 240 grit, then I finally use the 320 to carefully create the brushed effect. The hard part is getting every swipe perfectly straight, otherwise it looks messy. I alway use water with the Wet & dry to prolong the life of the sandpaper, and to contain the dust.
Lol , thanks for the awesome feedback everyone
Today I've sanded all the JB weld off the acrylic strips and the excess off the alu casting:
Its also slightly polished just like the top panel one was before painting:
I also glued some heatshrink onto the panel hinge to give the wire some extra strength for when door is opened and closed:
love the design and the finish on them panels... Cant wait to see more.
Unbelievably beautiful. Stunning work of art. Hexagons are definitely the new black (as I think was said on the phinix tower thread some time ago!).
I think the reason why I didn't really reply in here, was that it's difficult for me to find words for it!
It's just amazing! The design is beautifull, and the craftmanship is flawless! Cudos to you sir!
I'm actually lost for words! This is a first for me!
frosting the acryl strip is maybe an idea, but it's looking very good allready
Thanks for the amazing comments everyone
Here's the next update. I cut out a piece of 2mm alu sheet using the jigsaw:
I then filed it down so that it fits nicely inside the front door panel:
The finishing part of the top panel arrived today:
Its a 35 pores per inch sheet of open cell Polyurethane foam based on Polyether:
Here's some eye candy of it glued into the top panel:
Here's the foam cut out ready for the front panel:
Can someone poke me? I can't believe how awesome this single piece is!
I'm not kidding, I actually went and both at the same time for real!
That front panel is super clean looking! Keep it up!
Need to find a glue or something to put my jaw back...
Ooooh yeah, looking hot .
Fancy building me a case?
Time to wake up. I must be dreaming.
we use that foamy stuff at work, used as a dust filter in the fridges we make.
Damn. This thing should be in an art gallery when finished. Nothing big for starters. I'm thinking something along the lines of Tate Modern?
Thanks everyone , your comments continue to fuel my work
Yeah its awesome stuff, though took me ages to find a company that would actually sell me some in a relatively small quantity. I've made do with a 1.5 by 1 meter sheet of it lol, its expensive stuff too.
Yeah lol maybe we should all start the Bit-Tech exhibit
If only I had the spare time
