    that is a REALLY bright LED! the subtle white light is my favorite style of case lighting.

    OMG! I was wandering about how many light a single led can be able to create, and the answer is : a lot! It's really strange to have a copper heat spreader for a led , but, wow, it's a really cool led! You gave me a nice idea...
    Tnx a lot!

    the copper heat spreader is really overkill. if you dont need temps near roomtemp you can use a much smaller one. the lumiled i used is out of the 1. generation of high power leds. it has just 20lm . newer models deliver up to 240lm (seoul z-led).

    remember kids ...think first before cutting. the plexisheet became a bit too strait so i had to add a whole bunch of leds to get a even look.

    the lighting on the top of the case got quite tight too.

    at least the slot-illumination offered a bit more space.

    the frontpanel will be a major role for my light and fanstuff. nearly everything is connected to it.

    As usual great work derbaum. I thought you had forgotten about this project as I hadn't seen any updates for a while.

    ummm let´s start with a little teasin

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    the bolts for the sidepanel are sanded and polished.

    the case itself is now nearly finished, but the remote controll is not more then a concept.

    [​IMG]

    diameter 48mm , strength 10mm , aluminium. one of the few parts i didnt made myself.

    [​IMG]

    2 potentiometers are attached to the wheel. one for the fans on the top, the other one helps to vizualize the speed of the fans. more on that later.

    [​IMG]

    to visualize i need a bargraph or something similar. buying one was an option but no solution.

    [​IMG]

    i decided to build my own from small plexisheets and some unused smd leds.

    [​IMG]

    dont forget aluminium foil.

    see ya soon on part 2

    I've lost the necessary word .. It's a BIG idea to hide the potentiometer behind the alu disc, but the fantastic idea is the bargraph using smd led!!!

    @ ssr ... i need to keep my little secrets but they will be revealed soon. (maybe have a look at older pix. i have a (beta) sketchup render of the rc frontpanel.

    @ tt modder .. keep your eyes on this.

    just 3W but 240lm . i am tempted to buy one of them just to see how bright 240lm are.

    @ rig ... thx

    @ all. thx for posting.

    today we start with some bondo.

    [​IMG]

    while the bondo was drying i made the first modul. this one will carry 4 switches and a Ir diode.

    [​IMG]

    and the scond modul. pwr switch and a bargraph on this side.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    this button fits under the yellow striped cap. it´s made of a 5mm plexiglassheet

    [​IMG]

    i´ve had some time to paint the first pieces, too.

    [​IMG]

    modules done. the next step is to build the housing for them ( they are already standing on the parts of teh future case) and testing the bargraph.

    The look is fantastic, I wish I have 10% of your skills...
    I would like to see the bargraph in action, I'm so curious!
