What CAD software do you use Editor?

Also, where do you get your hardware models? because this looks amazing...

Always a great show to watch your concepts Editor, you have never been much of a case modder - rather a case maker. thumb.gif

Sorry dude, I haven't really done any kind of promoting of this as I only got my campus party tickets this week and at that point I really wasn't ready to start building it lol biggrin.gif

I did have a go at case modding once, I took off the front bezel put it back on and realised it wasn't for me lol

Generaly my design procedure will go
  1. Pencil & paper
  2. Google Sketchup or Solid Works
  3. Illustrator or Aspire

This can all be jumbled around and on some more complicated work I may roll through all of those steps a couple of times.


For the models I get most of them from Jez's Site but if it's not there or not how I want it to look I'll just make my own or modify someone else models smile.gif

So day two!

First I set up the CNC to mill out the plexi part of the motherboard tray.

mobotray.jpg

Bit of a jump now... but here's the assembled motherboard / mid section

mohbotraytest.jpg

Next victim is the panel that holds the radiators and also connects the mid section to the base.

Hot off the CNC
radplate.jpg

Bit of de-burring and its a quick test fit

radplatetest.jpg


All together now smile.gif that 5 day deadline is looking achievable biggrin.gif

testfit2-2.jpg


So I'll leave this update with my favourite shot of the day. Sadly you will all have to wait to find out what this block is being turned into smile.gif

PS: I'm always updating the E22 Facebook page as I go throughout the day, so if your interested in watching the project come together in real time as well as keeping up to date on how I fair in Berlin head over and join the fun smile.gif

So day 3!

Started off by cutting the back panel out of some 5mm black plexi

bacl.jpg

backfitted.jpg

Next it was time to return to that mysterious block of clear plexi from yesterday.

Checking to make sure to audio i/o fits

audioio.jpg

back panel screwed on.

audioio2.jpg

finally all together smile.gif contemplating using this piece of smoked plexi for the left top as the PSU should look fairly nice once its all done smile.gif

caseday3.jpg

---

On to the door biggrin.gif

I made this little fellow out of some white POM and then squeezed a spacer into it to create a bracket for the door to hang on and swivel in.

POMbracket.jpg

The basic action is shown here in video form, this still needs a bit of work and mainly tightening up but I am waiting for the last delivery of small components smile.gif

Looks like its coming along well. Have you run into any problems translating the design from an idea to an actual case?

Thanks NV43 smile.gif

No real problems just a few things that I could have improved like using M6 threaded bars rather than M4, adding some tabs and more supports for the centre... that kind of thing biggrin.gif

Just a quick Day 4 log update as day 5 looks to be just as hectic!

Made some support blocks to hold the smoked plexi top in place.

IMG_0827.jpg

Fitted it in and then sanded it flush

IMG_0829.jpg

Trying something a bit different out for the storage mounting

IMG_0833.jpg

Needed to generate some clearance between the radiator and the panel to allow for the 180deg fitting combo I have. Grabbed a scrap piece of 10mm plexi and started hacking it up. just needs a bit more sanding and were done biggrin.gif

IMG_0837.jpg

After all that I finally managed to start the painting! unfortunately seeing as I have less than 48 hours to finish and box it all up I will only be able to get in 2 coats and minimal sanding between. Still it should look ok smile.gif
