I’ve spent a lot of time working on ideas and designs for this machine, and after scrapping so many ideas, I’ve come up with something that I want for this system when it’s finished. I’m still not sure on a few of the details, but that’s how these things go. Sometimes, you only realise what you want to do when you’re about to do it. I’ve thrown together some sketches for you guys to see though, as well as some renders of the finished (stock) case. The sketches:
The renders. The first one is in the very early stages of the work:
This is one of the HDD Cages:
This is essentially the finished 3D model of the stock case:
Overall, I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out. The reason I do this is so that I can basically mod the whole machine in 3D first, and get a feel for what it’ll look like when it’s done. It also make it much easier for me to cut parts for the case if I can just measure where they’ll go in 3D, as opposed to struggling to measure it on the actual case.
So far, the plan is to go with a white case, with a black interior, and then have all the cables and water tubes white as well. This’ll give a great contrast. I’m really amped for this project, I think it’s going to be amazing when it’s done. This week, we’ll be ordering all the cable sleeving from Germany, as well as a little 7″ Monitor from the US.
