Well many of you know about my rack project (if not, go here ). I'm doing it to keep my computers tidy and clean. This is the first machine on my network (KNS-01) and the first one for the rack. A jump between some post on Bit-tech.net forums, like this or this i was inspired and decided to make a new case for my Shuttle system. I have a LAN party close in time and with my LAN Raider project on hold (here ) while i get more parts and ideas, a new case was needed. In add, this case will give me enought space for liquid cooling components and others. By the reasons i've said, i have other projects on hold, so i took these hex bases borrowed for this project. I fixed both with screws, cutted, filed and sanded until they matched perfectly. Then i began to make an alu frame. This is the back of the case. The small hole is for ventilation and the big one to pass the shuttle chasis thru. I'm going to use wood (MDF) only in front and back and it will be properly covered when finished. The inside face of back and front, with the angles to support the structure and the chasis. The frontside will has holes also, for buttons and others, but i'll make they later. 8 of those 8x8mm ALU square bars wil be the chasis of the upper structure. A teaser of the case. HDs will be in the botton, in a removable plate for easy access. The shuttle chasis in the middle and WC comps in the sides. I have to decide some things, like the location of the DVD (maybe a slim type unit) and others. Glueing the bars as previous step to make the holes precisely. It will be strong for LAN parties More pics soon. As i've said, this is the first case for my rack project and the shape isn't very common, but i've already thought how i'm going to put that thing on the rack... surprise.
