Scratch Build Case Club - Page 122

post #1211 of 1373
Picture a box inside a box the internal box is supported by a pipe of say 3" in diameter in that ever lenth you choose. The External box is also supported at the base with clamp locks to secure the top over the internal box. The pipe would be your cable conduit as well to allow your peripherals and PSU to have access to your MB. The 360(s) would.be mounted to the exterior of the internal box and the exterior box would have openings cut on the quarter turn side so that airflow is offset. Any finite dust should travel through the exterior Filter and have to travel round the internal box through the interior filter to make it into the inner box. Which would be something like a "clean room" in manufacturing electronics. Paint the interior box with a dark color Plastidip to show any dust that may make it through. Seal the exterior box with insulation tape for a leak free seal and install a Pump/Reservoir on one side of the internal with perspex(acrylic) to show when you're in need of Coolant.

Support the whole thing with a Xbrace. Make the whole structure large enough to fit a MicroATX(or smaller)laying flat near or at the bottom of the Internal Box. thinking.gif

What do you think? Would that be something you could build in short order. I'm reasonably sure it comes in at less than $400 for the materials alone, not including system components. mellowsmiley.gif

Welcome coookiemunster! Added you & a link to your build in the OP. That is one clean looking case, very nice.

I think I forgot to mention that this "case" will be mounted to the wall of the trailer and must stand up to the stress of travel along rough ground and very crappy roads. So I cant have the interior box supported by a tube or what not, if thats what your trying to say. Sorry, I have to draw out or see something drawn in 3D before I fully understand what it should look like, but I do like the Idea of having a second box to basically create a step down filter unit though! Thanks for the Suggestion!

Im going to attempt a 3D drawing of the "Case" tomorrow. Ill also be starting on the trailer this week so i should have a better idea of how it will all fit together.

OH! i forgot to mention that I'd like to join this club too! im going to be building quite a few of these for the company and once I start making some money, I'm going to be building one for personal use along with one for my good friend to use so she can play games with me tongue.gif

Hi Lorki212, To join members need to post a link of a build log (such as another thread on OCN), or photos of the scratch built case. This is so that I have something to link to on the first page, and also so other members can see (rather than imagine) what you're building and follow your progress.

Of course, you can post in this thread all you want, regardless of membership. It would be great if you would become a full member, since there have been some neat conceptual ideas posted about your potential build.

I may have went a little crazy. I reformatted Page #1, and added a thumbnail image for everybody's member listing. It should make it very easy to connect each member to their rig.

Unfortunately I did have to remove a few that had no extant photos (and there were some that seemed to be only renders, without any real hardware). If any qualified members were incorrectly purged, feel free to screech at me 57e3fa24_crybaby.gif and I will make it my life's endeavour to add you back into the pantheon.

Ahhhhh okay makes sense. I thought this build was to be a traveler system hence the portable nature of my proposal. But you can do the same thing on a wall in your trailer. Which is better since you can calk the edges where the exterior box meets the wall and put a lid on that portion of the case. thumb.gif

Routing cables would have to be sealed in some fashion that would make it air tight however. Otherwise you'd have an entry point for dust. thinking.gif

Does anyone have access to a cnc or another method of cutting? I kinda need some es help with a collaboration project for this new case build. The shop that I went to quoted me 450 for basically the whole case being done. I don't really know what to do at this moment because I don't really have access to a powered garage. Don't know how to weld. So I'm Thinking I may have to go with another option of building it. Similar to how parvum constructs their case with the blocks.

Dremel reinforced cut-off wheels aren't all that expensive I recently bought two packs of 5 each of the 426 wheels for only $9.99/pk from Ace Hardware. You can get the same thing for a hair over half that price as an add-on item from Amazon.com.

I've never bought them from eBay but if you get them from a reputable eBay vendor and ensure they are actually Dremel brand wheels, you would probably be ok. I was already at Ace when I got mine and didn't feel like shopping around at the time.

A pack of five wheels should last you a long time as long as you don't use too much feed pressure. Too much pressure won't speed up the cut all that much but will wear down the disks in nothing flat. If you have long, straight cuts on a flat stretch of metal, consider using a jig saw with a fine tooth or grit edge blade instead of a cut-off wheel. I often use a small band saw I got for only $100 several years ago for small sheets of aluminum. I recently got a higher quality blade for it that should handle steel (Vermont American, which is all I can find locally, sucks for anything other than aluminum) but haven't bothered to install it yet.

I am trying to decide how to accurately cut all the aluminum I bought for a case framework and cant seem to come up with a decent answer. I think the best option is a miter saw with a non-ferrous cutting blade, but don't like the idea of spending that much for one project.

I have 45 and 90 degree cuts to make in 1/8" angle and bar aluminum. Metal cutting tools on hand are a hacksaw, jig saw, and dremel. I am leaning towards making a box with 45 and 90 slots for the hack saw.

Any thoughts?
