This is my log that will show the upcoming process of a build allready started, this first post will feature info on what I want to achieve and how far along I am at the moment. -------------------- "Mission" To create a HTPC that reflects my view upon Scandinavian design, is space efficient, and aesthetically appealing. It will handle modern multimedia tasks where the blu-ray format will be in focus. Though this is very hardware dependant. Description Simplicity. Light. Scandinavian. Natural These are the inspiratiopnal word for my project which I call S-HTPC. It will not be a regular build where a out of the box product is transformed intoa new identity It's Identity will grow along with the product and in the end it will have a full grown unique identity. Function: Focus on makine a full user experience where the interface which is handled by XBMC will be fit to become a part of the result. Its graphical appearance will be based on the outside of the result and the inspirational words. Since the build is allready started I choose a few pictures that will show the progress from start to where I am at the moment. The first simple sketch for my idea, it started the whole "I need it"-process every man experiences once in a while. After some more sketching and CAD-work I got to a point where I wondered if I could achieve the look of the wood I wanted. The results were pretty damn close and I know how to get it the last 5 yards too. Incredible! How does this shape look IRL? Only one way to see if its odd or not, machine the hell out of a piece of scrap wood and see. It being too small was nothing to bother about, but the shape itself behaved as hoped. Rev.1 of the SSD-rack. It is made for a PSU to be fit between it legs. Simple yet... errrm.. never mind. Upcoming three pictures is my last work for now. They feature Rev.2 of the chassis design and a render of Rev.3 which vill be the final design to be machined (hopefully) I love to render, but still I hate it. How odd.
