Project ONDA

Hello everyone!
Glad to be back in business, after having moved workshop and installed my new CNC milling machine, which will assist me in the projects from now on

The project I'd like to present to you today is something pretty special, based on the open air case Hydra Mini. It features an abstract theme and it aims at being a living room/design gallery element.

I'll say no more and just let you imagine things as I go through the works!

Firstly, I'd like to thank my sponsors for this project:

HYDRA, PC HUNTER, HWLEGEND, ASUS ROG, OCPC GAMING, ALPHACOOL, SEASONIC, CABLEMOD.





Let's give it a start then!

First piece of material got under the machine's paws



The first and last "crescent moons" will have closed pockets instead of holes because there will be rods holding them together and screws at the sides.





One is missing, no more wood :duh:





Base for the entire structure, with a nice chamfer and engraved Explore Modding logo





All for now. Stay tuned guys

Nice one. I'm looking forward to seeing more of this.

What machine are you using to work that wood?

Heyyyy everyone! How are y'all doing?
I'm so happy to finally be back at the workshop, I've been quarantined for almost three months and then I had to deal with university exams, but now I'm here to blow some minds! :dremel:

While I was working on the exams, I started making some time to get back to work on this project which was meant to be a quick one....
and in that time I stained the wood in a mahogany tint, here's the result:









Here's a test with three spacers that I made for the moons, but the rest will come later, there are 27 more to make



My first attempt at the CNC with aluminum wasn't the most flawless ever, I got some melting and had to adjust some settings and make some trial and error. But I pulled it off eventually and these are a couple bracket that will attach to the moons and hold the 360mm rad!







A pretty nerve-wrecking part was to drill 8mm holes on the edges of four of the moons which are 14mm thick. And this is what they are for:







This is obviously just a quick fit test as the spacers are still missing therefore this is not a solid and final structure to continue working on. But I could get a clearer idea on how to proceed









This is all for now but since I'm back modding full time, there will finally be some consistency. See ya!
