    Hi, I'm here with my next project.

    After finish CM SupreDesk (www.cmdesk.eu) I decided to make my own case from the scratch.
    I took a lot of inspiration around case modding forums and make drawings and plans for my case.
    Case will be mainly from steel and few parts of plexi.
    Everything I drew in SketchUp and render :)

    UPDATE 1

    So at the start of project I bought steel profiles and welded them to the main frame.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After that I drew first parts and laser-cutted them

    [​IMG]

    And welded them into main frame

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then I cutted other profiles and placed them into. These profiles will be beams for the next sheet steel.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After all welding I sanded welds with a grinder.

    Nice work, that's one sturdy box. Interested to see how it turns out.

    What software did you use for rendering?

    It's getting good, it´s a good tecnique the plate welded to the structure in order to prevent thermal deformation.
    Keep on the good work.

    So for the next I did some work on mid-plate which will hold mainboard and other things like reservior combo and SSD :)

    The I/O bracket from old Cooler Master case.

    [​IMG]

    Testing the fit with old MB.

    [​IMG]

    Drew and printed the mainboard holes layout for 100% precision.

    [​IMG]

    Drilled holes

    [​IMG]

    And make threads for the spacers.

    [​IMG]

    MB fits very good :)

    [​IMG]

    And the mid plate in the main frame

    [​IMG]

    Back side

    UPDATE 4

    So I drew and lasercutted last parts for case. :)

    [​IMG]

    The side panel. Will be with the plexi.

    [​IMG]

    I asked my good friend who has access to CNC if he could mill special plexi for me - no problem :D

    [​IMG]

    Milling the edges.

    [​IMG]

    Detailed view on the edge of plexi.

    [​IMG]

    I also lasercutted and bend the front panel with ROG logo - because of ROG Maister name of this project and because I very like this logo. :thumb:

    [​IMG]

    Bought some plexi to do special effect with ROG logo. Some led strips and plexi will do awesome effect.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    Effect of "hearbeating/breathing" you can see in this video :)

    I really like the way this is turning out. Cant wait to see the final product. Just one question: in order to remove the side panel will you have to unscrew all those screws or how will it open?
    L4mka says thanks.

    Once you try the fans can you post back. I wanted to buy some but seen many people say that they are too loud even with the 1200 rpm adapter.

    ADATA

    Today I received sponsored products from ADATA. From Taipei to Czech Republic took delivery only about +- 45 hours. Almost faster then sending packages only through our country :D


    [​IMG]

    From ADATA I received two 128GB SSD. Exactly ADATA SX900 XPG 128GB

    I take some photos of disk and I would like to say big thanks to ADATA for their help! :)
