My last update, the project is ready but the Finalpics I'll do tomorrow.
Here now only times all work I've done the last few weeks.
Sorry that took me so long posted anything but I was really afraid not to be ready in time.
So I try to be brief, there are still quite a lot of photos and more than half I have already deleted. : D
If any ambiguities are just ask okay?
Under the SSD Tron I have placed a small RGB Strip, connected to the LEDs in the base.
then came from my cousin the second charge cable Combs.
Again, the same program as the last time, all the cut / break, deburring, sanding and clean.
then it went to the sleeving on.
Times as info that cable velvet Sleeve'm not getting through Combs through why I prefer all sleevs first and then push the cable through. This is very good because the PLX sleevs are quite rigid.
First, the 8 and 4 pin ATX cable
and then the 24 pin cable, do not forget the small cover which I built for carrying
now came the worst, all the cables together.
For this I have number to each cable and after many corrections and try with hot glue so I fixed the second base plate at all it get
Unfortunately, nothing helped, I had to cut the lower base plate, due to a half centimeter
good for the entire bottom plate I have another 4 holes set as the 2mm aluminum but was not as robust as expected
Then I put all power and reset cable
and last but not least the PCIe cable, unfortunately not quite the way I wanted but I think that can be so by go XD
The entire cable management cost me a total of 3 weeks now. Daily 6h after work and on weekends and holidays also determined 12 hours a day. And I thought I do it on a weekend finished XD.
Now it was time to polish all edges:
just like the dice I have all the edges with a sword Cutta peeled and then ground from 320 to 800 grit sandpaper. After that two polishing pastes and finally with pure polish.
I had tried to talk to a small piece to see how far fits the design and have this now transferred to the sliding door and rear wall for this to bend then.
and then bent
the small pieces for back ready polished and then glued together
With the sidewalls exactly the same, all edges polished
the Avexir neckline satin finish.
I hope you can imagine how long it takes all this take?
Okay, as expected, there was the cable laid course but a damage to the paint, mainly the outer edge.
So I had a good piece again completely wrap in foil to be painted around the defects in.
With a paintbrush unfortunately dissolving the color and pushes only the paint down again and a white pen does not have the same color as my paint.
Who's always there?
Then came the worst part: remove the foil!
Now I had to with the utmost care all behind moving sanding dust and the polishing paste to remove without scratching the Plexiglas. The glossy black is there really sensitive.
so now that all plates were cleaned, I also stick to one another
Next we went to the upper side parts
I had last year already two logos cut from 3mm Plexiglas and polished.
This I have now glued to the side wall
only times exactly aligned the logos and then taken up with tape so that they can no longer from slipping
Then measured the positions on the front and set with tape guide lines
then made the adhesive on the logos and adhered to the front
and now again: how I start already said, I have the dice all have slightly rearranged so they do not look so boring cubes.
How do you like that ? :crazy:
have been doing mostly oriented at me 15 °
well as the sleeves are so rigid I ever had to come up with the 24Pin ATX cable behind the tray little problems around the corner, so I did it briefly bent me a small retainer.
But this I wanted to make so and so to put a decal of the sponsor there. It fulfills the same a double sense;-)
This I then glued back on the tray.
The cable I have so long fixed with an aluminum bracket for the glue to dry.
on Friday I thought that Silencio see behind two 3mm Plexiglas and 2mm aluminum frame from something boring, so I have the frame summarily cut off so that further extend the rotor blades from the Case
so without damage was also not, so I concerned shall points again painted.
the small curved pieces for the back I attached with a spacer with the screws Case
No I would not flush, the distance is chosen deliberately because it would have the gap either way perceived and had a bond the screws obscured
last week, I have created the missing decals and was able to pick up on the weekend me.
I had weeded again everything yourself.
This comes on the rear window completely down
take the Avexir lettering, 1.6 mm character height I had normal Stickers
and some other things that can be seen later on the Finalpics;-)
the lighting of the hardware itself was somehow not quite as I expected, so I decided to TE-block from the top with a small strip to illuminate thus also equal to the GPU backplates are illuminated with.
So even a small angle cut, primed and painted
the current then immediately swiped from the top S-Light, the cable is thus exactly behind the ATX connectors and is not visible
Now It's something offtopic further.
For photo shoot I wanted something special but a suitable museum I did not to me and a jewelry shop / jeweler as a painter I need to ask not even.
So I got short hand out my bedroom wall redesigned.
completely plastering, primed and painted two times white
then centrally glued a snakeskin wallpaper
fits to or vice versa, I have this weekend even built me a stand for the case and the keyboard, mouse.
The stand for the Case is a transport box which I can buckle with foil as on a Euro pallet, the case then.
First the hardware store all materials Bought, the wallpaper I had ordered last week on the Internet
from old remnants I cut a few strips for the bottom
then glued together and to the ground
Angle cut and primed
the whole box glued to each other and once primed
angel paint in silver
The stand for the keyboard exactly tailored and everything glued to each other
mounted on the box still Tension Latches
and then also primed and painted
corresponding areas of the object also painted
and then glued to finish off the wallpaper and then the angle on the edge
Okay "thats it".
System I have filled yesterday and leaktest made everything alright.
Tomorrow I will make the final pics and will then latest day after tomorrow post! :-)
