Hello :)

I decided to build my own custom case from scratch because the caces that were on the market did not meet my expectations of both appearance, compatibility, etc, and already somehow found it was awfully expensive. In this way, the idea was that I would create such a case myself;)

The design is mine, all the pieces are done alone and are still under construction.

The decision was that it would be a Miedium Tower. It will be made of PMMA material with the possibility of making changes at any time. It will be made of individual modules twisted together with the cube with threaded holes. If you need to change any item, I modify it or make a new one.

Little data.

dimensions:

Frame + covers 535x460x226 + glass 547x472x250

Fans:

Front x3 120
Top x3 140
Back x1 120


The frame will be made of black acrylic 3mm thick + on it will cover the mirror or black mat also 3mm thick. All this goes for "smoked glass" ie PMMA 5mm separated by sleeves and chamfered edges of 45 degrees and polished diamond cutter.

Below I upload some photos from the prototype of the rack.























Stage 2

All elements already cut from the target material (at all still protective film)

Left to make the nuts to screw "glass" and put the residue.

Next step, look for parts to fill the case inside. Only then will I take up the layout of the interior.



















Stage 3


























Some photos from sponsors :)































Plans have changed a bit and parts from be quitet! I will use for another project that is already in my head :)

This project will only include Straight Power 10 600W :)





































First attempt of custom reservoir






















I have also got a motherboard and a processor but I need to take pictures :)

Thanks to the mainboard I can continue to work so you can expect in the next time the progress of the work :)

To be continued...

PS
Sorry for my English

It will not be a replica. This is a 1/1 project. Maybe someday it will be just for sale. At this moment there is still much to do and focus on this :)

I'm curious, the inlays where the cables go through.... Is that 3D printed? Laser cut? And the back piece too.

CNC milling :) The rest of the cables will not be visible. The view is only to what is most needed :) On the power supply will be the cover :p

What an amazing build. Is there a particular method to your madness with regards to design process. Did you mock up in a particular program? This thing is just unbelievable!

I create all ideas in my head. then I draw everything in the program and finally mill or cut on the laser :)
