I had to catch up on a few updates here, and everything looks super duper awesome! And congrats on MOTY nomination, but I didn't even think that you wouldn't be there.
Thanks bro, nice to hear from you again, I will be back soon with a new update
Time for the last update of this year guys!
I did some work on the first compartment of this mod as you will see.
I had to find a way to use acrylic in order to attach the bezel and back on the bottom part.
I didnt want to use plain angles for "art" reasons and also for extra durability.
So I created my own -more sturdy- angle by bending and somehow sculpting a piece of white acrylic. It took me 2 hours to create this piece!
Here is how it looked like first.
And after bending - sculpting (with various dremel bits)
By using some epoxy glue I attached this piece on the bezel.
While I was waiting for the glue to dry I decided to fix the window mocks so they will give an extra 5mm space to hide and attach behind the panel.
Then I bended some acrylic to angles and also did the second piece which is going to hold the back piece of the case.
Some cutting, sanding, filing!
By using epoxy again I glued-attached the bezel on the bottom part!
And also attached the second piece the same way. Screws will be used for extra stability/durability.
Drilled some holes for the screws to pass through .
Attached the back part too!
Time to slowly start building the side panel. First test fit the side panel's supporter.
Here is the wood pieces I am going to use!
These are only the half of them!
Cut to exact size and also smaller.
Attaching the first pieces with some universal glue. This is a very slow process as I have to wait around 5 minutes or more for each piece!
Turned the panel upside down and also start working on the top part as it will be not filled with wood. I will add later 1mm acrylic more designs etc.
Half way through the first panel. More to follow around 5 January.
I also noticed after more than one month that the motherboard i/o part of the motherboard is reversed due to my mistake on the original design! Now I have to disassemble the whole thing and order a new one!!! OMG!
Thanks for reading my worklog guys, I wish you all the best for the year to come but above all
health, love and consciousness in your lives! Till next time, peace!
yayy update! Looks good. keep the pace. such a pity about the mistake. Such things happen though. good bending skill. I'll buy me a heat gun some time. Looks lik a handy thing.
Thanks bro, indeed is very handy though I bought it for sleeving I use it now and for bending. Before that I used a torch which served me really well for a long time.
Verry nice update !
oh man I use a lighter for heatshrinking. Theres just too much thing to buy and not enough money.
Man thats looking cool!!!
Yeah Razer man, always so many things and tools to buy! I used to save money and buy a tool every 2 months until I got the basics!
So is the pci/io supposed to be facing upwards?, if so then gutted more expense looking good though mate & like the shape of this a lot .
Nice connetors too .
