    Although, I got multiple projects ongoing here,
    lets start with a new one :D

    This project is already finished, but I had to work under an NDA,
    so I was not able to share some of the progress before.
    So if you dont want to get spoiled of the final outcome, just dont
    check it out on my facebook. Or go ahead if you cant wait ;)

    For this mod, I worked together with MSI, Corsair, Alphacool and Mod my Mods.

    The theme of the project is like the name, the new movie "Venom".
    So, I thought what could be better than take a Venom bust and build a PC inside.
    Nothing right?

    So here we go.

    Cause of the very tide deadline (I had only two weeks after all parts were 3D printed)
    I decided to not model the bust myself. Instead I found an incredible Venom bust
    made by Nikita Burula on thingivers.com

    I made all the adjustments needed to fit the hardware inside and also made some
    changes on the outer apperance. Like I made the veins a bit thicker and added more.
    I also changed the sufrace of the eye part.

    So here are some of the 3D renderings, showing my idea.
    I also splitted the mod in 26 parts in total, that fit my print bed.
    For an easier processing, all parts were printed in ABS. This stuff sands so much better then
    PLA.

    After the 3D model was done, I started to print the pieces.
    To save some time in the post-processing phase, everything was printed in ABS.

    First part was the tounge.

    [​IMG]

    To get rid of the typical printing structure I sanded all pieces first with
    120 grid sand paper.

    [​IMG]

    After all areas were smooth, I assembled the tounge using just simple super glue.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    In the mean time, I also printed all pieces for the next part, the head.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    For the head, I also seperated the model into the lower and upper jaw.
    Before printing, all teeth were removed, to print them seperatly later.
    After processing, the pieces for the lower jaw were also glued together.

    After the lower jaw was done. I started gluing together all the parts for the upper jaw.
    Finally, both sections were joined together also.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After the head and tounge are done, I started working on the body.
    The printer really printed day and night to create all the parts.

    [​IMG]

    For a better stability, I included short metal pins in the model.
    Those pins also help to attach all the parts perfectly.

    [​IMG]

    All the parts were assembled in layers. So I attached the first two, to see if
    everything was joining together nicely.

    First gaps and small holes were already filled.

    You've made a lot of pins for this stuff. -Fortunately, coat hangers are almost a natural resource they are so plentiful. :lol:
    That blue/grey/yellow color scheme is pretty pleasing, even if it's incidental.

    :D

    And then the last row of the body was glued on.
    At this point I already realized one major advantage of 3D printing
    the entire case, the weight. Its only about 5kg for the entire construction.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I already made a quick test, if the head will also fit the body. When the hardware will be
    installed, the center of gravity will be in the back so that the mod stand right up without the
    danger of tilting over.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Next up, more sanding. This time wet sanding with 400 grid.

    [​IMG]

    Then I applied multipel layers of Filler/Primer

    [​IMG]

    All small gaps were filled with spot putty befor attaching the head.
    The seam line was also filled with body filler to hide it.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Again everything was covered with a layer of Filler/Primer befor wet sanding it again.

    What kind of filler did you use ? It seems "liquid" and easy to apply

    For gaps I am using mainly miliput which is a 2 part epoxy putty. for lager areas if needed i use bondo, pin holes and scratches are filled with eigther bondo air drying spot putty or 3M spot putty.
    Last layer is always a high build surface filler/primer before startigng with the paint job.

    Yeah scale is almost 1:1 :D :D :D

    While all the parts are drying after the wet sand, I build a base for the mod out of MDF.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then, the Venom got it first glossy black layer of paint.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Teeth and gum were painted in variouse red tones.

    [​IMG]

    Last parts printing were teeth. They will be painted in ivory and weathered later.

    [​IMG]

    During the time the paint needed to dry, I workd on the hardware, and prepared it for the water cooling.

    [​IMG]

    To match my green and black color sheme, I sleeved all the calbes also in black and green.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then the hardware was put into place and I installed the water cooling.
