nice color confusis,
bentleya, that look's realy amazing !
hehe thanks that just one need to sort a few more things out but i will prob do 2-3 models got to try and bet your crazy res invention thing
mine is soon finished
haha, secret weapon !!
I let you gess what that thing is.
I still have to do tubes, the GPUs and some small details.
Wow - that's Nice.
Top-notch work Dark~3nergy!
Dark~3nergy YOU Really Have MAD SKILLS!!! OMG just WOW. Well done.
thanks mate ! ^^
Its a long shot but is the box in the drive bays a UPS?
Hey dark it looks to me like you have used some kind of plugin for your rendering as thats not the sketchup background.....
am i right?
If im wrong i apologise and very very very good work
Well, as I struggle away with SketchUp (nightmare with curves, isn't it?) I thought I'd introduce you to my idea - Project GT-R. I did a quick hand drawn sketch to have something to refer to, proportion-wise:
Yep, she's based on the new Nissan GT-R! Its not particularly beautiful, nor has it heritage and its not particularly expensive (qualities I look for in a dream car) but this awesome product of engineering has quickly become my favourite car. With mind numbing speed, and a design influenced by the PlayStation era of Gran Turismo and Gundam Wing, I wanted my case design to reflect all these attributes of the eponymous vehicle... So we'll have lots of aggressive angles, and style inspired by function. And of course, it'll need to be clever and high tech.
I'll fill you in a bit more on the design when I have a few SketchUp models to show you...
Regards until then,
x06jsp, nope, I just made a grey highpoly "half-sphere"
modgodtanvir, could have been, but its a picoitx computer.
It looks a bit like an Evo X in that drawing.
(And now I'm wondering which would win in a race)
Aah (I've got one in mine too... )
You know - you're actually right!
So now its a question of:
Its crazy how similar they both look... I'll stick with the GT-R and change my design - make it more GT-R-like...
And the GT-R would kick the Evo's ass in a race
Ah awesome it looks great
another progress pic.. file is now above 30mb.. my sempron's struggling! even with 2gb ram :S
Edit: Overclocked the Sempron to 2.2ghz... quick and easy 22% o/c via a Nvidia untility. running a wee bit faster.. until I make the file like 50mb
Haha, I am so going to do a Radiator like that bottom one in my upcoming project! (assuming I can actually manage it, or you are going to do one like that yourself)
Wow dude, thats looking brilliant! >30MB?! thats crazy! Mine's like only 5MB
EDIT: Correction, 21MB! I didn't realise they got that big on Sketchup...
Big update coming soon. We have some pretty awesome prizes on the line. More on that later....
@Bentleya I like the res design. Since this is a 'pooter model and not an actual build, You can do stuff that would be impossible to build. I'd curve the front of the tubes into each other and shape the top grill around it. The side additions would look less 'tacked' on if you blended the bulge into the front panel somehow.
...oops. Can we give feedback? I live for threads with a lot of brainstorming.
Of course you can give feedback
This thread, as much as being a competition, is a tribute to the world of PC design, aiming to inspire and raise awareness of this awesome technology. It also promotes free software
cheapskate..... 2 steps head of you already done it but wont post a picture to sunday to i get some more done just having issuse with one bit at the mo but will sort it
lol, I didn't think at that
so I started with another one, more "extreme",
