Project Rose Quartz





Hello everybody


My new project is based on my previous build NATi Proto This project have inner part that slides from the back:








New project will be m-atx based and have motorized inner part that slide out from the back and outer part is 3D printed with 3mm glass windows.
Motor is basic metal gear servo that is made to turn 360 and controlled by arduino uno.


There will be custom loop for the cpu.


System specs are:
Cpu: I7-7740X
MB: Msi X299m-A Pro
GPU: Dont have it yet

Memory: XPG Spectrix D41 DDR4 32GB
SSD: 2 X XPG Gammix S11 480GB
PSU: Silverstone SX650-G SFX
Fans and controlbox is Silverstone

Big thanks to Silverstone and Msi for sponsoring this build.

Here is the inner part of the case with test components so you can see what the layout is:














And here is first design of the 3D printed outer case:











Top and front fangrills will be this design:

Thanks


First i did mod to the SX650-G PSU:











I cut the fangrill off and designed new one. I use MS 3D Builder for my designs. 3D print with Minifactory innovator for big parts and Ultimaker 2 Extented+ for little parts. Material is PLA

Next thing on my list is modify the servo to rotate 360 degrees. So lets get into it:

First step is remove top and bottom cover:











And take the gears out so i can take the pin off restrict the motor to spin 360:

One last thing to do is cut the potentiometer off and replace it with two resistors. Now servo thinks that it is on center position all the time and can rotate 360 degrees:

Thanks Trying to do my best.


Now servo is modded i make code for the arduino and feed it with two different pwm signal so it turs both ways.


I 3D printed little rail so i can test it and it works:








Then i designed bigger rails that fit on the aluminium inner case:








Had to cut little peace off the inner case so motor would fit:








Next step is mounting the aluminium m-atx stand to the frame and test the motor with components in the case.
