First Concept Render

Yep!

I've spent around 20 hours this weekend hashing out ideas until I settled on an idea inspired by the InWin S-Frame. It's made out of 3mm aluminium, all in the Fusion 360 sheet metal environment. Basically ignore the front (right) of the case - that's just a temporary placeholder based on the BoxFish reservoir/pump combo.

Here's what I've done so far!




And happy Valentine's to me!


Any ideas on project names? Throw them at me! I'm an engineer, not a creative!

Check out JONSBO MOD1. Its a nice one too that might give you some more ideas.

Also consider a pass through port for all the cables running into the top of your pc. Might be nice to have them reach the IO from a hidden recess.

I work in the Science/Engineering department at a large University So Hopefully I'll be able to get it made! If not, there's a backup 3rd party company my faculty has ties with - if ALL that fails, I've got plans to cut it into 3 parts and join them stylistically

Ahh no way! I hadn't actually seen that one before, looks like a squished S-Frame

Stop peaking at my design! I've designed a little cutout for the top, and I'm currently playing with cover pieces for the back/front/middle

Question Choices to be made

Which leads me onto my next point of contention...
Covers or No Covers?







Let me know what you think! I'm imagining vertical slats going front to back direction-wise on top of these 3D printed plates for visualisation.

Also you might be wondering why the render environment changes every render - Yay for Fusion bugs

I couldn't resist another post just to share these front/rear roof designs! Completely sold on the panels now



Let me know what you think! I'm going to echo this design across the case to tie it together, and they'll be printed on a Markforged X7 in Onyx - if you've not seen these printers, they're a work of art! Nearly invisible layer lines and the chopped carbon fibre nylon is SUPER matte and nice and dark, not to mention crazy strong if I inlay continuous kevlar strands or carbon fibre strands!

You're the 6th person to say this to me lol! But I've never seen a Nespresso machine look anything like this I'm definitely gonna change the motherboard fan assembly though, not feeling it at all!

For those who were wondering how things fit together:



There's *just* enough room with the EK FLT 240 D5 combo! I'm currently designing a bracket to mount the res/pump to the case, and also hold the PSU off the back Stay tuned!

So I've ditched the fan grille, louvers to the rescue!
I've also started modelling the wire paths Here's a quick canvas render:


Parts now ordered:
EK-Quantum Kinetic FLT 240 DDC PWM D-RGB - Plexi
EK-CryoFuel
EK-Quantum Velocity D-RGB - AMD Nickel + Acetal
EK-CoolStream SE 240
Noctua Redux NF-P12 *3 - Also ordered grey anti-vibration corners, annoyingly only 16 in stock so I'll have to wait for more stock.
Bykski 3070 waterblock for the MSI Ventus 3X
Various black Barrow hardline fittings

Undecided on PETG vs Acrylic tubing - I'll do some more research!
