[Scratch Build] UDesk [Airtight, Lowcost, Very low noise PC built in Desk] - Page 5

Lets put together the table construction.
Quite simple design is chosen for its mobility - you can dismantle the table into smaller parts in case of moving it somewhere etc.

Time to mount the case to the table.
Fingers crossed in hope everything fits. biggrin.gif

Taking pictures of this sized table is way more difficult than normal sized case, as you can see I had to cover half of the room with white "background" and still its not perfect.

I decided to make the reservoir myself.

You could notice several things. Since I want the reservoir to be oriented horizontally I prefer larger diameter. This Improves filling speed and reduces chances that the pump will suck in air bubbles when it has enough power to create vortexes.

The final inner diameter of the glass tube is 80mm plus several mm of glass. The gasket is silicon formed in a groove i milled in the PVC base. The base itself is also made from two parts, one is this PVC and below it, there is a Textit piece (I didnt have anything thick enough, so i composed the base of two layers).

Sexy res. Personally I'd like to see all 6 support/connector beams, but that's just my aesthetic preference.

Looks very cool. I like the 3 beams. Can't wait to see it in the desk! thumbsupsmiley.png

Alright, another update: A wooden desk with epoxy clear and superhard surface, to survive even the worst possible usage and gaming conditions smile.gif

At this moment I can use this as my desk and I will, so I can enjoy my hard work getting closer to finish.

BTW, the inner right angles on the desk weren't easy to manufacture at all. I had to "dive" the saw into the material, and this operation is quite dangerous, since the blade rotates at several thousand rpm.






Mounting the inner mechanism into the exterior shell. This part is able to move up and down so you can access the cables beneath the mobo etc. Lots of math went into this function. biggrin.gif

Hello guys, here is minor update... testing the extending mechanism.

Anyways, I cant show you further updates for about a week or two (or three biggrin.gif ) but I could show you progress photos of my previous project UCase. Is that ok? Im new to this worklogging etc.

While I will be working hard to finish other parts of UDesk, you can perhaps find an inspiration in my previous project UCase. It was about noiseless yet powerful PC.
