[SPONSORED][Scratch Build] Project mATX - Three 240mm Radiators in <20L - Page 11

Don't mind me, just stopping by to sub. thumb.gif

Re: Those panels: I can see myself liking both kinda styles, conventional and artistic. Since I'm often more of a 90-degree
kinda guy I think I might go with the artistic choice on this one for a change. It certainly has a bit more of a unique touch IMHO.

Yes i really like the panels, would it be hard to make full case render with them? redface.gif

I know splash is big inspiration, but u should make this case look unique, yet clean thumb.gif

I like the left design of the 2, It's something different then what you always see on a case. Love to see it make the final stage wink.gif
post #104 of 588
I like the left design well, simply because the rounded corners look better and more 'organic' and it looks easier to machine or cut.

This is a good point. It'll probably be cut on a laser and the rounded corners are indeed easier to cut.

I actually don't like the new panels redface.gif They look nice, but I like my builds simple and clean.

I really do like the new design but it wouldn't be feasible from a large production standpoint.

Like I mentioned above, it wouldn't be feasible for a large production run. It would require the use of a laser cutter for every case which would increase variance between the cases from my understanding.

I doubt it will make it to the final stage unfortunately frown.gif it was more of a "proof of concept" I guess.

Agreed. These have a fillet of 2.1mm. I went back and redid it with a fillet of 1mm. They look much better and have more open area but like I mentioned above, won't be feasible for the final product.

For a very small number of cases, then this design would work. For a large number, it just wouldn't be feasible.

Well luckily for you, I'll be keeping the old panels thumb.gif




Well... I got one estimate back for a prototype and it was... I'll just say much more than I was expecting. If we can't get the price down and/or other manufactures quote roughly the same price, then this project will be put on indefinite hold unfortunately. Not the news I was hoping to hear sad-smiley-002.gif

Funnily enough, my dad imports accordions, and some of their models have a very similar pattern to
those triangles on their grills. Not sure anymore how they manufacture them though, would need to
ask.

Well they won't be sold for $300 redface.gif that doesn't include the cost of screws, a power button, shipping materials and just a little bit extra for the time I've put into it. I'm not sure how much the final product will cost. I've got a bit of time to think that through after I get the first prototype.

I'm sure as a fellow Washingtonian we can see if there is a way around the shipping thumb.gif

I bought a few bags of 100 size 6-32 socket cap screws for $5 each on eBay. I didn't need all of them at the moment but it was a great deal and that way I don't need to go and buy more for future projects. You could buy several of these bags for the different lengths you need, if there's many requests for mass production, I'm sure all most or all the screws will be used.


Yep! Already planned on that. Thanks thumb.gif

Don't worry! You haven't missed too much smile.gif



Got two more pictures for you. Two different style of pump mounting brackets! One that covers all types of DDC pumps and another one that covers EK and Bitspower D5 pump mod kits. Both brackets attach to a 120mm radiator mount hole locations. Check them out!

DDC mount locations.

D5 mount locations.

Enjoy!

Sub sub subbed.

If you need any mounting holes for EK products lemme know <3
