Currently on hold, waiting for acrylic delivery.
The last years i have been suffering from using my workstation/gamingstation parts when i´m modding but this is going to be my everyday computer. And use other parts for modding projects.
Intel I7 5960x (a Intel 4690k will be used as mockup)
Matte/flat colors of gun metal black and orange/amber.
Aircooling for optimal silence, or a good quality AIO.
Much of todays cases manufactured have curved edges, curved fronts and mostly some sort of roundness to them.
I wanted to make a completely straight edged case with different angles.
Current state of the project
Cutting all parts from Acrylic.
Pictures of the build
Acrylic ripped into width
Pieces cut into parts needed.
The bigger ones i only have 10 pcs of, 20 needed. Have to buy more acrylic
Front edges glued and sanded a bit to get the shape perfect.
It took me 3-4 re-glues to get the exact angles needed.
As all pieces are angled in the cuts, and i only have this little friend to make the cuts
I had to make special jigs to hold the pieces while cutting the sides.
I tried cutting with jigsaw and a bottom plate that could be angled, but never got good cuts.
This works awsome, its a bit fiddling around to mount every piece and measure where i need the cut, but its quicker than jigsaw + sanding all edges.
