Stuning work quizz & tech LEGO Cheesecake.
Just caught a bad cold, so will stay in bed for a few days and focus on recovery with BBC diet!
Really nice job. Love your wooden skills.
Very nice. As always your work is supurb
Thank you guys! I hope I'll get that UV lighting delivered soon so that I can start on final assembly
Excellent project yet again dude! Love the 'adjuster'!
I have a question about UV. I just got my purple UV LED strip today, and it doesn't seem to react with the coolant, at all. The coolant I'm using is the "Feser One 1L UV Black". I've never worked with UV before, but shouldn't it react?
What wave length are they? Needs to be around 395nm to be UV.
The LEDs you mean? I dont know, doesnt say anywhere. But it works/reacts with white objects/surfaces, so it must be UV
Well, seems like the Feser Black UV is pretty sad when it comes to UV reaction. I thereby decided to ditch the UV idea. Well well...
But I have an update:
First, I made some minor adjustments in the loop layout. Removed one of the res mounts, moved the res a bit more to the right. This was to get the fillport centered.
Here's another shot. As you can see I've drained the loop. Will make a refill when everything assebled.
A 2mm sheet of glass...
And here's the transparent LCD, finally ready to be mounted inside the chassis.
A good fit I suppose. You can see the PCB of the LCD touching the blind construction. No margins, what so ever =)
Short flat cable, HDMI.
A pretty good fit there as well.
Then finally, I could put the two chassis segments together and see the resluts of 1000+ hrs.
The backside, well, need some serious cable management. There's cables EVERYWHERE, don't know where to start really =) Give me few more day...
Until then, here's some quick tests playing with the RGB strip.
Man, that looks incredible. The UV did look good, but this looks amazing as well. Your attention to detail always amazes me. You seem to do everything with that pinpoint accuracy. I'm looking forward to seeing how this'll look at the end.
Looking good Squid, I don't envy the task of tidying those cables but I'm sure you'll do a good job as always.
Very nice. Purple lights looks good.
Thanks Wisdom! Well, I don't have a choice. I have to use pinpoint accuracy in order to make these constructions to work in the first place. Then well, I am a perfectionist =)
Btw, the UV coolant will still be used(the purple looks so good), I just won't have UV lighting inside.
Thanks man! Well, I'm not going to sleeve =)
Thanks! Indeed it does. A lot of them colors look good. Have to decide which one to go with for the final pictures I guess. Hmm...
Brilliant build, love how everything fits the theme, great job quizz_kid! ....
This turned out brilliant quizz!
Another great mod to add to your already long list of amazing builds!
Looks great, man! Hey, Everyone is a little ashamed of their backside. It's human nature. But seriously; you should get that growth of wiring looked at.
Thanks mnpc, glad you like it!
Well, it's not finished yet, but in a few days I hope. Thanks man!
Im looking at it right now... yep, lots to do
Hopefully i'll be able to get this monster to the studio next week. Expect finals then!!
Wow. Seems copper loves any colour? I love how everything is shiny purple. Awesomesauce!
Those tight fits are mint too. Wish I had half your patience to mod to this degree of perfection!
Wishing you good luck and loads of fun with the cable management
And, obviously...excited for final pics! And video
Wow 1k Hours I am in awe! The project has turned out beautifully so far and I am going to bet the finished project will be no less than flawless.
Great job and keep it up!
