    [Project] Modularis Evolution - it begins.. near completion

    Ok guys my long awaited project is finally here, but I must say I'm still not sure on the name so if anyone has any better suggestions please go ahead and reveal them.

    Firstly sponsors

    www.crucial.com


    This all started out as a design to try and really push my skills and the ideas behind a computer case and also as a way of promoting my shop.

    The design started off as quite a simple modular idea


    But then it quickly evolved into Modularis Evolution




    So as I have got my workshop all sorted out and ready to mod I grabbed one of my sheets of 2'x4' aluminium and marked it ready for cutting (please excuse the blur i didnt have my tripod to hand)

    I quickly got that cut up with my trusty jigsaw and moved onto the bending with my amazing 30" manual sheet metal brake.




    So thats one side done on to the next


    I then cut a piece for the top - this will be the removable section for access to the mobo tray.


    I then grabbed one of my spare motherboard trays and put it in for a very rough test fit - note it is not going to be that low down when it is mounted.



    So unfortunately that is all I had time for today but dont worry I will be doing some more to it on Monday.

    Plan for Monday is to get the window in the top section cut and maybe the front and back panels cut.

    Until next time
    [hr]

    Well I'm back for another update, Unfortunately i didn't get quite as much as i was hoping done today but nether the less i have an update anyway.

    Firstly here is the top panel marked for cutting out the window.


    And after a short session on the scroll saw before filing we get this


    And after a bit of filing we are left with this

    But im not too sure on this i think it may be a bit small for this case and i also havent rounded off the corners so i think i will enlarge the hole and round off the corners aswell.

    And mounted to the rest of the case


    Now is the time to move on to the front and back panels so here you go front panel cut out


    Front and back panels cut out


    And then onto the back panel i/o cutout (sorry didnt get any pics of marking out etc etc
    But here it is in the vice being filed


    And unfortunately that's all for today more tomorrow.

    Hope you enjoy

    Josh

    Great work with the metal brake. Looks to me like you have some history with sheet metal.

    Awesome! that looks like it will be cool.

    Is it going to be the green/black finish from the sketchup (or CAD/whatever)?

    Welcome to Modders-Inc!

    Bending metal is always a good thing to learn and know.

    looks like a great start.
