Due to legal reasons and technical boring stuff,I'm not able to show much of the actual fabrication process. So the exterior frame was made with two sheets, bent that meet at the middle.
They have been a few blunders between the work my brother did and some of guys that helped with the welding. It’s not all bad though I'll just make this one....
The main issue is that the top plate has been fitted upside down, meaning the PCI bracket won’t work, it’s a two minute fix but once the rig started to shape, the sheer size of this thing really hit me. I have to seriously consider keeping as it, or downsizing. Its and empty frame and looks can be deceiving. Once the components and tubing go in it’ll fill pretty quick.
Any what I’m doing to do now is mock fit some parts and perhaps rejig the design, and then back to the shop. Until then, this is where I'm at
This plate top for motherboard and PSU is upside down...whoops
The mesh won't be staying, it was just a random off cut that was going spare. So yeah metal work looks so so at this stage, it’s nice seeing it in the flesh and putting pen to paper, then moving to sketchup and now this. Their much to tweak and I hope to have Mk2 ready for late next week
