    Yea, honestly both reference designs are neat and fitting, but the price is also "super". :)
    I am still not sure if i am willing to buy a card that costs 400+, will see later on i guess.

    Plexiglas came, so i could do a first length check. I still need more printed parts to get the whole thing together.

    Cutting the plexiglas with first a jigsaw, then a scroll saw:

    Testing if the holes fit to the 3d printed frame (i changed the m6 casing screws there, the first i got we're bad...10€ wasted :eek:):

    Making a whole piece to get the end length (also, my guiding parts don't fit, gotta redo them):

    rasping the plexiglas down...yay:

    rasping done, for the first part (2 total, 2nd one still needs a frame, so that will be next):

    i hope i get the whole thing together in the next few days...we'll see ;)

    Hey guys,

    I finished the coarse work on the second plexiglas today (rasping, coarse sanding):

    So next will be finishing the missing "edge" parts (24 short corner parts, 20 long corner parts and around 200 spacers) before i can keep on assembling the whole shell.

    for now it is standing on the bottom frame, remade the guidings and that's actually working now):

    as always, i hope you like it and see you on the next...step ;)
