thanks guys, I am refining and streamlining the process as this goes forward.
there will be some slight design changes that will simplify some stuff as well. This project is a learning process for me, as well as a creative process.

They always are! I'm sure once you guys get all the "bugs" worked out they would be quite easy to mass produce.
The only question then will be, How much would someone pay for one, and how much do they cost to make.
Personally from what I have seen I would be willing to pay ~$300-$400 for one of those! Then again I'm cheap

Sounds great. I was wondering if your gonna keep your blue prints of the plans from the Original model through all the updated models. This might make it easier for let's just say when your pumping out 300 a day. and your on model ver F2.1 some one could easily place a more expensive order for an original hand crafted model A by none other then the original fabricators.

If they can make 75% or more on the markup then this would be about on par. Cutting down on fab/production costs is always the biggest chore, then again some works of art are almost priceless. Depending on the outcome, one might think this could be set for a limited production to keep sales cost up by creating a greater demand then supply. Marketing is not alwys that easy though.

Please excuse me for asking CR but did you sell INTELI or ever get it published in any magazines?

thanks for the comments and insights guys, much appreciated

N2, no, its just sitting in an empty room with a t-shirt draped over it
I emailed Valve about it but never heard back. I didnt post it on any other sites, but Dylan tried to spread the word a little, a while back. It didnt really seem to catch on. I am open to offers tho (in PM's only)

I saw this thread pop up a couple weeks ago but did not have a chance to read the thread from front to back until today.

Steel, acrylic, machining, transforming/pneumatic computers, and tuning forks in PC cases... CR has finally gone off the deep end. I blame it on mad-cow disease.

If your new idea does not work, I have one you could try. Make another switch plate, but make it wider and completely flat instead of bent to 90 degrees. On the ends you can drill small holes for mounting bolts, with the two switch holes in the center like before. Then you can cut/bore two large holes(or just one giant hole) in the steel tube base for the switches, then bore and tap holes for the mounting bolts.

I believe this is very similar to what you use for The Intelligence. First you would install the switches in the flat plate, then pass the wires through the large hole(s) in the steel tube, then screw/bolt the plate directly to the steel tube.

I will be watching for more.

Sanding and Polishing

I have now drilled the holes for the fans, and I sure hope that they are right. When I cut the holes I guestimated the diameter and the resulting holes were within microns of a template that I downloaded later on and compared them to. I did need the template to drill the fan-mounting holes, so it was a relief to have it. My only hesitation is that I do not have 140mm fans to confirm fitment, but I think that they will be just fine.

CR ~ You mentioned 9/64" holes? I did not have an acrylic bit that size, so I used a 5/32" bit. since you are using bolt-through mounting hardware this should not pose an issue, it may even provide some leeway for small adjustments to fan/hole alignment.




I used the paper template for the first set, then used the first panel that I drilled on as the template for the other holes.



Sanding setup:



Here are the panels that are in various stages of sanding to show what the grits look like. From top to bottom: 240, 320, 400, 800




Polishing setup:



Fan holes:



Corners:




CR ~ I have cleaned the 2 other openings (optical and QD), but have not sanded or polished these. It was my intention to leave them as is so that you could finish them with a gasket of some type (i.e. thin-gauged rubber self-adhesive stuff). If you want those sanded and polished let me know. The inside corners are not going to be perfect as it is difficult to sand to 800 grit in the tight spot and not mar other areas.

And I offer one last time to ship this un-assembled. Going so will provide you the leeway to make adjustments to the panels if needs be.

Either way is fine for me, but it may take a few days to wrangle up a box that the shell will fit into.

Money shot!!!

Your work with acrylic still amazes me.... everything piece of acrylic I touch cracks, everything you touch is magically polished.

edit: and now CR posts too... its like Christmas and I just got a flying monkey

It appears you have solved the "I need a gigantic unknown tap" issue with a much simpler solution . Funny how that stuff works out
