Cool event! And as for that part is it an arm for a monitor?

That's my guess too, hello cold unfeeling robot arm.

Keep up the great work! I cant wait to see the finished product.

What program did you use to 3d model your design?

Ughhh its so good looking, the black matte finish, the precise machining, the desk design, that the metal is from industrial cake pans, I just, its awesome. Makes me want to get back into my metal working.

I use mainly free tools, so for 3d modeling i used sketchup which is very intuitive

for 3d animation (which is coming later), texturing and rendering i used blender.

Here we have another update

An interconnect plate!
It was super difficult to manufacture, since i dont have any cnc or even regular milling machine, i had to use hands and stationary drill combined with vice for single axis milling operation. I guess this was one of the hardest thing ive done so far. And it gets even worse biggrin.gif

Since i couldnt use regular gaskets (o rings) since its virtually impossible for me to do these thin grooves i decided to chemically weld the parts together. At first I wanted to have acrylic, so i made all from plexi, but welding plexi with aceton or toluen proven to be impossible at the size of the component. The pressure needed to make proper bond cause along with the solvent microcracks in the plexi. In my defense i have to say i dont have access to proper glue for acrylic material in my country.

Anyways the plexi didnt work, so i went for hardened pvc, its easier to mill and it can be also chemically welded using quite cheap glue.

Holy f**king hell, this is awesome. I mean, you got some serious crafting skills going on there - I want to make something like that but unfortunately I have two left hands while being right-handed.

+Sub and I want to see the end result right now rolleyes.gif

I think I will print your worklog photos and put them on my wall for motivation to create myself some tools to make my own stuff. I don't think I have seen quite that complex build ever before.

Thanks for the appreciation guys smile.gif

So there is some hardware, nothing extraordinary. This is pro-gamers pc, so multiple gpus are out of a question.
