Hello guys. I want to share with you my new project. It's a Scratch build with the steampunk themed inspired by Tomas Edison. I hope you enjoy it and I would like everyone's opinion.
The pieces that already arrive...
A 37-way connector, used in aviation and which I will incorporate into the project. I do not know because I really like the look of this...
And the computer will stay inside those acrylic domes, making an allusion to the lamp...
Positioning the motherboard inside the dome
Making the marking of the drilling of the mobo
Demarcating the space that the mobo will occupy in the acrylic base
Positioning the GSkill SSD to mark the space to be occupied.
And positioning the VGA, which will be on the other side of the base
Here is a video of the presentation of the project (sorry the language of the video, but I did in my native language)
Continuing, I picked up some gears in the junkyard and some cylindrical pieces of nylon to make some gears.
I do not like the motherboard connectors because they are always jagged, so I'm taking measurements to make a cover
Improvising an acrylic bender with iron bars, clamp and thermal blower.
Trimming the excess
In the lower corner, the cover hits the capacitors. So I had to make a snap.
I thought about reusing old SMD LEDs to create illumination for the motherboard connectors
Welding with an old soldering iron. The new ones last nothing.
For now, that's it. Here's a video of those steps. (in my native language too)
