    The four 'eyes' are analog gages, but the lens part is also a fan control dial. (Thank Gozer I don't have to actually engineer that stuff. )

    Thanks, John. :D I'm going more for cast aluminum plates.

    @Bill - playing with acrylic again, I see. :D Is that spaced for radiators? I dropped something off at the post office on Friday...

    Edit: Thanks, Kylevdm.:D A TOTAL pain in the *ss. I had about 30 corrupt parts to fix on the radiator grill alone. -and don't look at the front blob too close.:hehe:

    I'm not going to show my design until, the last minute, but I'll happily show you my inspiration...:

    Its for an ITX board, with a small PSU and SSD, from American Black Whalnut.

    And here is a basic CAD drawing of the table, which I'm doing for my AS coursework, but without the central spans.

    Trust me. You'll like the outcome ;)

    Still trying to grapple with sketchup! :hehe: Might post mine soon!

    @ Mankz: I thought that it was sketchup only! Or can you import cobalt files? :)
