    Project : Synthetica by AnG3L
    -------------------------------------

    Intro:

    Hello my friends again! Time for a new project!
    This time I am going to follow my friends advice (Chris!) and replicate a design by the famous
    architect Zaha Hadid!
    I am not going to copy the design you are about to see but I will follow her particular style!

    [​IMG]

    It was a very difficult task for me to choose the perfect design amongst hundreds of beautiful
    structures and buildings.
    I had to take under consideration the placement of the components and the heat dissipation (airflow, materials etc)
    This design though with the proper changes was the only one that fitted in my concept as all the other designs due to the very "free flaw" technique Zaha Hadid has, would have been huge and not so functional.

    The other problem I faced was the finding of the right material. I choose so many materials but some of them were heavy, some of them needed molds and some of them werent durable enough. So I ended up with 2 different kinds of fiberglass and probably some modeling paste.

    The main piece that I will work with will be acrylic, were I will do all the curves and crazy design with the fiberglass. The rest that will house the components will be aluminum. Most of the work will be done by using cnc and laser machines.

    So far I worked around 200 hours on the designs and the concept. This mod will be watercooled even if I was going air this time I changed my mind due to the heat and aesthetic reasons!
    All the parts are going to be removable, not a single rivet in my designs so far! As always I give emphasis first on the functionality.
    The colors are going to be blue metallic and black!

    So lets begin our 5th humble journey!! I promise that you will enjoy this as I have a lot of surprises for you! (No painting techniques as many people dislike them)

    So lets begin!!

    As I told you in the intro, the main part that it will word as a "top panel" will be the architect replicate theme.
    The material I am going to "build" on it will be 3mm clear acrylic. A lot of windows will be attached on it and also radiator ventilation holes and mesh.
    Here are the parts after the cnc "preparation!"

    [​IMG]

    The main top panel piece was routed in the bending areas for more accurate and tight bend.

    This small piece is a part of the reservoir stand! You will love it once I finish it!

    [​IMG]

    Some windows will be bended too.

    [​IMG]

    Some of the windows bended already!

    [​IMG]

    This small 2cm acrylic piece will be glued together with 4 more the same to become the angle of the components chassis. This
    will also hold the box together. You will have to be patient till we get there though!!
    In 8 of them (top and bottom parts) I made threads for the screws that will hold the box together.

    So lets cross our fingers for a nice journey guys!!!! Peace to all of you!!

    I like Hadids organic style... watching :thumb:

    EDIT: I forgot to add... She is great source of inspiration, but I wouldn't replicate, just my unimportant opinion :D

    now that's using your head! single piece heat bent. I'm super excited about this fab. its remarkable that you have such short transition time between builds. and i know that your daily life is full of craziness and other side projects. you are in line to become the worlds most interesting man at this rate.
