It really looks awesome, congratulations. But It really lacks some proper feet. Maybe you could build them onto the radiators?
Got bored at lunch so had a quick play on something different as the green ones almost finished and the details were driving me nuts...
Each mini res would sit on top of a block with sits on a heat sink couple that with twin pumps and a 3x120mm rad and it should run cool
@Asulk - I'm doing this on Hypnotoad. Athalon 2800 @3.2ghz, 1 gig of ram. -Nothing particularly special. It takes forever to save though... When I did the followme command for the radiator heatsink, I had to walk away and just let it process for an hour.
@forrester joe - That would take all the fun out of the competition. I get the feeling some awesome stuff will be rolling in at the end of March.
@Aterius Gmork - I think two 320 radiators make fine feet. Those end caps are supposed to be titanium, so there wouldn't be any finish scratching off.
edit: Nice one, Editor. So the frame doubles as a heat sink.
Cant wait to see what those sneeky people have been up to
Editor LIKES me - made a case to hold a 6 pack. Very well done too.
You always struck me as more of a 12 pack person...
Ha ha yeah John hopefully they should stay cool to... what about a beer cooled pc with a tap on the front? would have to be something more like ale though due to the bubbles maybe bishops finger or a good hobgoblin! mind you living in the west country cider could also be an option lol
Maybe I can con Editor into making the case symmetrical with 6 on each side. No need to leave the computer room. I'm not getting any younger here.
Well maybe something is wrong with my computer...cause my windows mini file is 6.6mb, and goes really slow when i go to edit any of the circles...
Guess it is good I am planning a new computer! Haha
think i may drop out of this competition. built a new pc and still tweaking it. havent been designing for awhile so not sure if ill make the deadline. good luck guys. also my new builds in the sig. love the new qmicra case.
@asulc - try turning the shadows and textures off.
A tree fell on my internet and killed it. I'll be out of the contest for a while. (posting from a friend's)
It's a ruse!
Cheaps is buying time and is going to come back with another melt your face design. Just wait. The young have skills and the eye coordination to be worrisome.
Sux to be old and infirm.
is there a way to push multiple holes through? I have multiple circles drawn for vents, but it takes forever pushing each one through individually...
Thank you for the idea, Cheapskate! It looks much better, even without all the holes punched.
I still need some kind of logo though, to complete the mac look...haha
Not sure it my way is correct or not but I usually make a flat plane of the right size/shape and then create a "cutter" shape on top -> delete the middle of the cutter -> Select the outline of the hole hit M then ctrl and move it to where you want the next hole (you can type "X" and then a number to create an array)
- For example I want a piece of mesh with 30 hexagonal holes across the top so I create one hexagon -> delete the middle -> hit M then CTRL and move it the required space -> then I type x 29.
After that its just a case of extruding the now cut plane to the desired thickness...
hope that helped, there probably is an easier way to do all this but I've always been a bit to boolean happy
On a side note "One-Life" is finished and is now sitting on my new desk mod oh the boredom of weekend evenings when there's no workshop in sight lol
Editor, you've gotta real eye for style..
I really like the vented chassis idea. ..and it wouldn't be that hard to build
@Editor - Ikea has a desk like that but white. Yours is better.
Heya, was googling case mods in sketchup and came across your earlier competition so I decided I may aswell give it a go.
A sneak preview of my case, wouldn't mind some criticism.
Not much of Sketchup Expert as you can see
Doesn't look like I stand much of a chance
Thanks John/Bill its been a damn good time designing all this stuff just getting itchy fingers now untill I can start ordering stuff once we move house
Welcome to the forums Scream...
looking good so far dude, awesome window design! im guessing the twin 80mm fans on the side are for the hdds or a mini radiator?
that mean your building it?
woooo i cant wait i am defiantly going to follow
move house faster and get the pards ordered lol
