    Hi, I'm here with my next project.


    After finish CM SupreDesk (www.cmdesk.eu) I decided to make my own case from the scratch.
    I took a lot of inspiration around case modding forums and make drawings and plans for my case.
    Case will be mainly from steel and few parts of plexi.
    Everything I drew in SketchUp and render :)

    UPDATE 1

    So at the start of project I bought steel profiles and welded them to the main frame.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After that I drew first parts and laser-cutted them

    [​IMG]

    And welded them into main frame

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then I cutted other profiles and placed them into. These profiles will be beams for the next sheet steel.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After all welding I sanded welds with a grinder.

    Update 3

    So for the next I did some work on mid-plate which will hold mainboard and other things like reservior combo and SSD :)

    The I/O bracket from old Cooler Master case.

    [​IMG]

    Testing the fit with old MB.

    [​IMG]

    Drew and printed the mainboard holes layout for 100% precision.

    [​IMG]

    Drilled holes

    [​IMG]

    And make threads for the spacers.

    [​IMG]

    MB fits very good :)

    [​IMG]

    And the mid plate in the main frame

    [​IMG]

    Back side

    UPDATE 4

    So I drew and lasercutted last parts for case. :)

    [​IMG]

    The side panel. Will be with the plexi.

    [​IMG]

    I asked my good friend who has access to CNC if he could mill special plexi for me - no problem :D

    [​IMG]

    Milling the edges.

    [​IMG]

    Detailed view on the edge of plexi.

    [​IMG]

    I also lasercutted and bend the front panel with ROG logo - because of ROG Maister name of this project and because I very like this logo. :thumb:

    [​IMG]

    Bought some plexi to do special effect with ROG logo. Some led strips and plexi will do awesome effect.

    [​IMG]

    Effect of "hearbeating/breathing" you can see in this video :)
