Looks great, i can't wait to see more!!
Wow, that Black and Orange theme is Great!
I don't like orange so much but I love your work keep it up.
Im loving that shroud. Please do more fabulous plexi work like that
you dont have any way of knowing but i'm a metal guy, but yhe way you made that shroud... that goes to my heart
OMG! This is freaking great!
Thanks guys, keep those comments coming, they really drive me to trying harder with this mod.
And yes, there's going to be a lot more plexi work ahead, I have the next piece almost ready, let's see if I'll be doing an update on that tomorrow, not sure how much time I have to mod today, but tomorrow I should be able to finish the next item...
Damn how could i miss this update? Sweet job on the Acrylic.
Keep it comin!!!
Great acrilyic skills!!! What did you use to bend the acrilyic? A heatgun?
Wow, the acrylic int he bottom is looking sweet , Keep up the good work dude.
Thank you all for commenting, I'll have to go to work tonight, so the next update is going to be tomorrow or sunday, depending on how much I can get done.
The acrylic was bent with a heatgun. It was really simple after I got that bending needs 10mm space on both sides. So if I wanted to make a 100mm piece with 90 degree angle, I'd clamp the acrylic at 90mm and then heat it and bend it.
So I'll be going to work, but tomorrow it's modding time
hi, very good work!!! i like the v1000 and i think i'll buy and mod it
P.s.: where you bought the orange acrylic sheet?
Hey ka88 and welcome to the forums.
The plexi was actually a piece left from some other project my father has done over the years. But I saw the same kind of acrylic when I got the "glue" in Muovi-Ura here in Finland. Though I'm pretty sure that doesn't help you at all
If there's a shop that sells acrylic sheets and plastics, maybe that should be the first place to look from. Although you might have to order the whole sheet if there's not any scrap pieces left and the whole sheet is like 2m x 3m so think about it carefully. Hopefully someone else can give you better answers on this issue.
I'm off to work, good night everybody.
Your plastic skills are great I have never really liked orange but now I Love it since I have seen it turn out great on so many cases. And it looks like your case will be one of them.
Thanks Gnu, those pieces were actually the first for me with acrylic. I'm gradually starting to learn how to deal with it, but I did have some difficulties in the beginning.
You have a great project going on there yourself, I've seen many self-made projectors, but your's looks like it's factory-made
For your first time that is freakin amazing.
I believe perfection like this deserves 5 stars.
thanks for the welcome and for the info
everyway i think is better to find a plastic seller here in Italy
Thanks for the help!!!
I was thinking the same, very tasty indeed
