    The Build

    Mostly I’ll use many size acrylics and aluminums for this project
    10 mm acrylics for based and 3 mm to 6mm for detailing.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    As a center of DRAGON ..that also base for motherboard and other parts, I use 1cm acrylic.
    For mold and cutting pattern, 9 pieces A4 letter were used..quite large.

    [​IMG]


    Glue it together

    [​IMG]


    Cut the acrylic board to fit scroll saw machine

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    For detail cut.. I use scroll saw. Breaking 4 cutting saw when cut this head.
    No finger cut .. ***61514;

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Detailing and finishing cutting edge,
    actually not much to be sanding and finishing if the right cutting saw being use.

    [​IMG]

    Done for based
    Still A lot to do.

    PSU Mod
    All weight will be centered on this, so I decided to change where the PSU will be mounted.
    PSU will be at the bottom.

    back to Scroll saw, for detail cut.

    [​IMG]

    I will add 4mm acrylic as clip at the left and right side and screw with bolt for more strength.
    But I,m gonna make some shape for it...later..
    [​IMG]

    This is for previewing only, and looking for the right measurement for the PSU.

    Implementation

    Dragon Claw

    It’s already broke my cutting saw just when I start it
    [​IMG]

    I’ve to make one way continues cut without interrupt.
    Somehow I figure out that one way clean cut make the edge more soft and less of rough edge.

    Wow I am impressed. This is very awesome looking. I bet you will get great OCing out of that Pentium Anniversary chip with liquid cooling.
