I'm betting on the entire case being crazy

Thanks for the kind words guys!

"I do not like Black Molding on my Khaos panels Sam I am"



No, I'm not insulating my workshop . I'm using this foam to construct the cores for a new bezel, top panel and features on the side panels. These will be sculpted, then covered with fiberglass.

Cut from beneath with a hacksaw blade, this yields the best cutting results








Look like something I may have stolen from the kitchen...


This is just pre-fitting the top panel, There will fan "holes" added .


The center portion will be opened..lol..

Alright, hard to see where you're going with this, but I'm sure it'll become clear in the next update .

Did you tape off the LEDs of the fan in the spin art?

I don't think so, if he did the LED's shouldn't be that bright anymore.

Did you tape off the LEDs? I'd be afraid I'd block them up

When I put painter's tape on my fan controller LEDs they stay pretty bright. It takes like 5 layers to get the brightness down enough that I can go to sleep .

Styrofoam FTW. Used to work with that stuff a lot. I found a hot wire cutter was the best thing to cut it with

Alright . Either way, don't think it matters much.

Nah, didnt really care to tape them off.. the entire theme will be airbrushed to look weathered, perfection isnt on the menu for the fans

It's been awhile since I could build something for myself. I think 3 years. My business sales have dropped like everyone else. Case Mod parts are not a necessity. Luckily I've got local customers who allow me to feed their tech addictions. So while things slow, I feel like I should be sharpening my skills instead of worrying about money. Its also forcing us all to re-evaluate the materials and what resources we buy from.

This weekend my focus will go back to adding more details to my friend, Skully.

My Magic Sculpt arrived, after receiving the wrong product, Magic Smooth. I can't blame them, the product labels are very similar. Tap's customer service is one of the best I've ever dealt with. They took care of everything quickly, answered emails, and called to follow up with me about crediting the balance on my credit card. Very friendly over the phone. They're the business I strive Mnpctech to be like.

ARTbyTROY posted an excellent comparison of sculpting compounds for case modding. His article prompted my decision to try Magic Sculpt.
