Loop design ... will this work? - Page 2

post #11 of 23
Okay thanks for the tip. You were able to find models for a D5, the Lian-Li case and all that stuff on Google's 3D Warehouse? I didn't really think of it as a place that would have such specific models on it.

Not sure if you're using Maya or what package you're on, but check this out: http://www.hodge.net.au/sam/blog/?p=128=1

It's a script that will allow you to measure the length of a spline curve in Maya...extremely helpful in order to let you design the loop and then know exactly what lengths of tube to cut!

Thanks kweechy, I used maya and Alias in the past... but mostly Rhino 3D now you can do almost the same things when you know it in depth

well, to monitor cpu and gpu temps you can always just use something like real temp. if you want to know a bit more info of your system, you can also use hardware monitor, but personally i prefer real temp, it's easy to understand and has a simple interface.

if you're interested in your coolant temp in the loop, you can also use a sensor like this. of course you don't really need it, as the most important temps are still your cpu and gpu core temps, but for some extra info for your loop, it's pretty cool.

loops looks fine, key note. As long as reservoir is before the pump, it doesn't really matter what configuration is after that. Its all asthetic as the loop will become the same delta.

Nice 3D you got there! Was it all done with Sketchup or what?

Also, sorry if this sounds noobish, but shouldn't the VGA block be on top of the card, seeing this is a "reverse" setup?

Nothing noobish about it...I wasn't thinking when I drew it and was too lazy to change it at the time. I have a new layout now as I can't use this slot for the VGA either
(I need to use the lowest one closest to the CPU).

As far as the 3D work, it is all done in Rhino3D

Hmmm never heard of Rhino before. How much does it differ from ProE, Solidworks and such? From what I could see on their site, it seems like it's more geared towards looks...

Rhino 3D is basically a dumbdown version of Alias(although almost as powerful if you know it inside out) . It is more geared towards surface modeling but you can use it for Engineering as well. Just a bit more work than a program of the likes of Solidworks. I.m an Industrial Designer by trade so it fits my needs better and I can always import IGES of the parts I am designing around if I need to have tight tolerances...
