Hi Guys,

 

 

I decided to make some aluminum and plexy cover panels for the Cooling Towers, I will use the aluminum for the bottom and the top.


I want to use chrome nuts exposed to the outside, they'll stand out on the black background, something like this:

I cut these aluminum parts for coverage by a sheet

 

    

 

In the panels that I'll place on the bottom of the towers I made the opening for 1 140mm fan,

 

   

 

  

 

  

 

 

At this point to clarify what I have in mind here is how the new bottom structure looks with 6 input 140mm fans

 

  

 

I will create an interspace for the fans with this beautiful profiled of 2.5 cm

Hi Guys,

 

I want to create a space for fans under the case, but I want that the 3 structures remain separated. 

 

I cut the profiled in 2 pieces to obtain square outline "frames" to be placed around the openings of cooling towers fans.

 

I have marked the points of bending and  45° incisio and I prepared the wood souls covered with duct tape.

 

    

 

I switched to the Dreme stage and  I removed the marked parts so that I can bend the profiled at 90°.

 

The bending phase required a minimum of attention, the aluminum profiled allows only one fold otherwise it breaks. So before I fold, I put inside the wood core and so gradually, until I get the desired square frame that fits to the bottom of Coling Tower and accommodates the 140mm fan.

 

   

 

 

 

I switched to fix the frame to the bottom, I marked the measurements of the frame on the plate and the points where to insert the screws.

 

 

 

I fixed frame with clamps so that it would remain with  90° angles.

 

 

 

I drilled and screwed with 20mm screws and here is the final result

 

   

 

And here is the effect on the bottom of Cooling Towers (is upside down).

 

The frame will then be stuccoed and painted (like all these parts), will be a perforated metal cover where inside will be placed the filter.

Hi Guys,

 

another update, as first thing I fixed the central structure over the 900D and between the 2 Cooling Towers using 25mm screws and nuts. I fixed the structure with clamps so that it was in correct position.  I have marked the points where do the holes, drilled, passed the screws, initially thought to fix it down even to the 900D but it is not necessary.

 

   

 

And here is the result, notice how the parts are perfect on top

 

 

 

 

Remains the central part where are 4 140mm fans. I started always from a profiled of 2.5 cm x 200 cm, I cut to size using a Dremel to 55.6 cm and I did a placement test.

 

  

 

I fixed the 2 bars in place with clamps, I marked the drill holes so that the screws don't obstruct tthe later step and I screwed with 20mm screws 

 

    

 

And here is the final effect

 

 

Disassembled the entire structure I  returned to work on the central body more easily. In particular, I started working on the side supports for the 4 140mm fans.  In the 900D here are 4 120mm fans so I must saw itaway and rebuild custom. 

I used L 25X10 mm profiled , I cut to size (55.6 cm) using Dreme, a bit of file and now I try only the positioning.

 

   

 

With the fans between the two profiled the effect is that, the profiled have yet to be finished, but this is the next time!

Hi friends,

 

thank for your subbed! 

 

I have many surprises for you!

 

But I enjoy your support and advice :specool:

Hi guys,

 

I worked on side fans groups of which I had done some test last time.

 

I started from the usual 4 fans support of Cooling Towers, I have fixed 2 fans on one side and on the other side I put the L profiled, putting it perfectly in place. I blocked it with clamps, drilled and drew the outline. 

Then I sawed following the drawing and here is the first support, a little file work and the support is ready.

 

    

 

For the other 3 supports I used the first as a model and I repeated the above steps

 

   

 

At this point I mounted 4 fans enlarging the holes where necessary, and here is the final result. This fans block will mount both laterally that in the front and in the rear that at the end will be identical.

 

  

 

Finally I placed the fans block in its final destination but it is about 4 mm larger, I am studying the best solution, however, there is space for sawing laterally.

 

I also tried the block in front and back and I really like the effect.
Surely I will work before the front, which I think is easier and then I'll use it as a template for the rear.
