Love all the acrylic work, especially enjoyed the magnets
More magnet goodness!
The side panel was quite a work out. The mirror finish on the acrylic is quite nice and its really up to personal preference if you like it over the hairline polish. I will be offering both as options.
First pass over with the polish, some bits aren't quite done yet as you can see bottom right of the panel.
Side by side and ready for assembly.
It's quite a striking finish and in the right light it almost could be mistaken for polished metal.
Mr Sheen would be proud. For those of you not in Australia, Mr Sheen is a shine polish, the guy on the can looked like John Howard (former PM, again for those not in oz).
Once the panel goes on, this just stops it moving side to side or up and down.
Happy at how it has turned out if I must say so
Whilst it can be overlooked, its a flush panel, one that without a CNC, would have been very difficult to get to fit perfectly. The tolerance I was working with was .1mm give on the window and it fit!
I wanted to do a reverse shot to show just how much room is inside the case. I also wanted to take motherboard construction in house so if anyone knows the SR2 form factor please reply to this thread or shoot me a PM
. I have looked at formfactors.org and on google but to no avail....
Just a reminder, this is being held to the panel with 48 rare earth magnets.
Meet your maker!
