Thanks dude. Comments like this warm my heart
I got one more sponsor!
Now will it be to lcd screen on this case. One that shows temp. and the other shows all the other stuff
Consider to set blue leds around the green lcdscreen they sponced me.Somebody knows how it will be. Will it be like this? (Taken from Pinky2. Sorry) http://homepage.mac.com/mark_riley/.Pictur.../19_Buttons.JPG
Ps. It's this display. http://hammar.no/handlesystem/visva...4grkit&mid=3&undermenyid=LCD Pakke&vis=gruppe (It's a norwegian site, but the thinga name is in english, and you can see what it is on the picture) Thanks for the help.
That link won't work.
Here's the pic.
I believe it's consider "bad" to link to other peoples images, most people have bandwith restrictions. I personally don't care and you have my permission...but, just so you know for future.
Oh, yea the blooo, I changed these to red...eventually. Not with complete success. So to answer your question, you can get close.
You MUST use some stronger way of uniting the structure of your case. I think it would be better to use something involving screws; you risk it falling apart in any movement; you may screw side panels and use them as means of uniting your case,but that does not look very practical.
You could use solid wood (not plywood) pieces of the same size than those you have now and put them together using aluminum angles screwed between each two of them(i.e. using three aluminum angle pieces in each corner). In this case solid wood frame will be much stronger than plywood frame.
Sorry! Thanks for the answer.
But I will use screws to screw the plates to the chase. It will in a way be the plates that held everything together if you know what I mean.
(I got one more sponsor. mpx.no. I gonna get a mouse from them)
Burning down the house with a hacksaw and handsaw, interesting.
Nice project so far, awaiting the next update.
Well it looks interesting; I hope it turns out excellent though.
What continually amazes me though is people from all over the world post on bit-tech in English, not there native language and still manage to do it better than people who have spoken English all their life.... /OT
thanks for that you're interinsting this project. I'm gluing the plexi tho the plates now. Maybe it will be a update this weekend. Does anybody know if it is possible to enlarge the sleeving?And I have problem to get the atx and molex contact loose from the wire. Can anybody help me. I don't have any pin-remover, and can't get it either. So something alternativ had been great
It would light up like this when the power is on. Soo what du you think, will it work or not?
As for the molex, you should be able to get the pins out with a small screwdriver without destroying them, on each side of the pins are a small metal shard sticking out to stop them from sliding out. If you push them down they should pop right out and when your done sleeving you can pull them out and pop them back into the molex.
As for the sleeving, you just constrict it and it will open up larger.
Here comes a update!
Here is what I got from my sponsor hammar:
I found out that I had to solder everything fast. This is the first time I have solder something.
Backside of the controller-card:
And the I found out that the black thing in the right upper corner should have been solder in the frontside So what did I do? I had no tools to get the tinn off.
So first I screwed everything together. I foud out that I had lost a mutter So I took some tinn a solder it to the screw.
And then I solder the metalpin-connection. Thaat was hard. With once I took in the metalthing that I wanted to solder, it bended.
I think this is one of the best picture I have taken. The other pictures that I have taken is just crap.
And did it work?
So what do you think? COme with comments!!
This lcd-display could had taken place in the the catogory Modding-diasters, men it didn't
Had forgot to tell that the case is going to be sprayed white. Blue leds.
hahaha that's norwegian the english word is "but".. goodlooking lcd. waht are you going to make it show?
ahh. I knew that. Maybe I wrote a little bit too fast. I think I would make it to show Winamp songs and movie. How long it has came and stuff like that. I'm gluing the tree-plates to the plexi now. Does anyone want pictures, or should I wait to the glue is dried.
The araldite made me sick.
ops. double- post. sorry. a moderat, can you delete this?
haha.. i totally agree with this guy.. i never did understand that... and all i can speak is english, yet my spelling/grammer is much worse than all these other people...
Altough this has nothing to do with the actual topic, I have to ask if you got good sponsor deals form the three companies. You said that you got the lcd from Hammar, but what else are you going to get? And in the end I'll explain my question a bit. I'm asking this cause I'm also 15 and I haven't got enough money to buy all the stuff I would neded to start my project.
BUT: The mod has a niiice start. Keep it up!
isou. what you need to do is convince the shops that they will get enough advertizing to make it worth the cost of f.eks a lcd display. Telling them that your project log will be posted at the worlds largest modding forum, and that they can follow the project as it develops will probably help.
