    Good day boys, siccome today they are to house are put to play designing to me on the ideas for my next one mod ...... and from my fantasy this sketch has exited ........


    [​IMG]



    Now watched the details also because in design I'm not Giotto, but is not what I have for the time being overhead for being able to realize this work. The branches as in the film they will be alternated with branches and cables in illuminated fiber optic, the spirit of the tree will be made with of the iron thread covered with plastic model in order simulating the log and the corteccia, in the roots s' the illuminated fiber optics like the film . In the below part there will be obviously all hardware, than will be looked at through of big windows, that I still do not have in mind like making, the bathtub will be large with inside that small (as it is looked at from the sketch visualized in green), made it specifies and identical like in the BioLab with inside a model of Avatar….Other things will come to me later on in mind of this Modding…. Syntonized remained thanks and will be looked at some of the beautiful ones!

    hardware in the tree? does it grow on there? you should use "core i7" and "GTX580" seeds for it.

    It's a very very big tree if you plan to put an hd (2,5 I hope) inside :D
    How do you plan to light the fibre optics?
    Because usually only the endind point light up.

    I've only ever worked with fiber optic cables once, and it was an endglow cable (as I imagine these are also) and the one tip I think you might want to hear is that if you have to alter the cables lengths, use a hot-knife to cut the cables. If the ends are not flush or have a jagged cut it drastically reduces the brightness of the cable.

    I found that using a hot knife and then sanding the end of the cable worked well (I think I used 1300 grit sandpaper?).

    Cool idea though, can't wait to see progress!

    Hello excused the waits, but I must at least have in mind like realizing the case


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]



    Obviously opportunely it will be modified, instead that to be two separate modules they will be united in order to contain total hardware with one of the two containers for the liquid ....... this will be inside of the case ......



    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]





    The other largest one will be in the below part of tree and will simulate the unoptanium ........



    [​IMG]




    And then the tree will be inserted in a plastic much realistic one of Pandora, where the module-case will rest you ....... I have already all in my head I hope to realize it ....... Been syntonized monday it is begun ........

    Finally part! Today afternoon I have made a turn to the Briko ...... and here my purchases



    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]




    After to have centered the plywood for the measure that serves to me that is 40x40cm I trace the circumference of the base of tree with the hole to the center for the passage of cables for the led, output usb, headphone and microphone ....... Remembered that under to this base the container-tube of the liquid green-blue that it will simulate the unoptanium and will have the same dimensions of the plywood with un' height of approximately 20cm .......



    [​IMG]



    Now cut with the Dremel .....



    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]




    Detail of the used tip in order to make the circle the center ...... watched some imperfections has not made all of haste also because then all it will completely be covered of clay, therefore does not import to have a perfect circle….


    [​IMG]



    Here roughly where will come put the greater roots (those numbered) and the secondary roots........

    New up ....... here as it is proceeded: for first thing I have given a layer of assembling in order to make to attack the clay to the wood, later on I have given the form of the root and have made a kind of dam for being able to put the initially liquid resin as. I have coiled two you spin of iron in order to make the structure of the tree (in all will be 12), I have supported the thread inside of the two clay cords and I have poured the resin so that then after hardening I will have a very solid base in order then to make the log of tree ........
