Exclamation [SCRATCHBUILD] Bulldozer massive case

Heya guys,

First off, big thanks to Gigatron for supporting me on this build and agreeing to display it in their store after its completed!





One grand thanks to sponsors for putting their faith in me!!!



CoolerMaster:




Phobya:




AlphaCool:




AquaTuning:



Shakmods:


I started working on this project few days ago and i thought, lets post some of it.. Idea and startlog first
It will be a massive bulldozer looking case as a tribute for AMD and their FX series of processors...

Model 3D:










I switched from case mod to scratch build entire bottom frame complete also some welds needed to be fixed.. been a while since i welded anything



































Day 3, i started late, and i didn’t have material for more, going to buy some more tomorrow











These 3 are just tossed sides to make it look similar to end project, there is still more to be done, these are just reference scaling pics





I am gonna have to start getting some interior work, need to get it all together before I take it apart for painting... also i got some nice looking screws for estetic work... Also i will need to pick up swoop, real swoop for mini bulldozer, its gonna be quite massive *cast iron* also i got led strips to go inside ( yellow ) i will need to calculate how to molex them correctly so if anyone could send me some link to assist me on what is the relations on lenght/molex, than i will need to get cable extenders to place ( they will be preset to the build connecting in PSU chamber ) sleeved yellow black ( also need to sleeve them, but only need to do half cuz i got black sleeved from RaidMax ). I also made some adjustments, the windscreen will be touchscreen fan controller modded to fit. Making contact connectors so i don’t have to remove cables from the side panel and so there are no cables... apart from the ones imbedded in the side panel it self. Grabbing electric window adjuster for the top part so the entire cabin will lift at a push of a button, exposing the components that will be underneath .
Rims for the side, the entire PC will move forward than... I will put some small wheels on the bottom of the case and move it with electric car window adjuster so it pops out when i need to do something and it will pop all the way out... Also the engine compartment will host twin modular power supply in parallel. ( side intake / front exhaust ) i will need to mod it a bit so that power cable can get to it... i found angled power cable so i will first try with that one.








1/3 of the swoop that i am making, it will be 3 parts like those at different angles covered by aluminum sheets
Also, the mud protector will be reduced in size to 210mm to get in line with the tracks that will be 200mm





Cabin, it will lift upwards to open the pc components, windows will be plexiglass.



That fan will be as the top link of rotor for tracks




That top turned out nice




also i figured out and i custom ordered set of these with the exact lenght and 2 rows of threads that connect them to be used as tracks



As for the paint job goes, yellow with black stripes on some parts, details like the bolts will be black, grill will be black with RED backlight on top and bottom, also red non transparent mesh behind the grill... Cabin i cant decide Yellow or black, but it will have yellow backlight, roof will be black, windscreen - i hope, NZXT LX. Also, for hidraulics effect on swoop i am going with rear suspension from VW Golf 6 and for the smaller ones on the bottom side, it will be suspension for 5th dour on VW Golf 6 as well... Aprox weight empty, around 30 kilos, full around 50 still struggling with system that will go in, i got some of it, ( my gamer rig )... And the good news , I got a spot in the PC show in Belgrade Fair
One side complete, may look funny now odd now but over the tubes there is gonna be fan grill in shape of the gears...




Yeah its gonna be massive, after i finish 2nd side, fenders and cabin tomorrow its painting time and after that, DETAIL TIME... also, once the swoop gets in place, the bar that goes along side the dozer will give it totally different look, ( its gonna be hazelnut board piece - extremely light wood ) also i reduced the weight by allot... its gonna be 20 kilos w/o equipment inside and w/o the swoop...

Also the mechanism for opening the case will look like this:

the middle CASE part will have wheels for easier manipulation ...

Holy crap! That's immense and looks heavy as hell, and I thought Caselabs cases were solidly built, this is mental over engineered.

This is different and it looks like you're going to need a forklift to put where you want when it's finished LOL will check back on this one though

Update

Here it is guys, what those pipes are and how i mounted them
Side panel with holes drilled


Checking the pipes because i need to flaten the contact area between them so they fit... they are f110mm but the part where they touch the board is 125 so there isnt any room between them.


Turned it around after i got them in to place and now i am preparing to mount them... marking the holes and stuff..


ok mounting method, simple but efficient







The hight of the case: ( for refference its 730mm )


And the case with both side panels "tubed"


the side panels drop inwords at the bottom, i will have to set some distancers there, they must have gap of around 1.5mm in order for case to slide out, once i mount them to the board it should be fine with some anti scratch tapes and it will gonna go nice and smooth
