    well guys i had to spend some time figuring out how to glue different materials but i solved.
    I have to recreate this effect but without using 3d printing or cnc how to do?

    now I create another support that will follow the top profile now it's easy i have a base now ..

    perfect fit

    I need a structure already made to fix and here comes this to my mind ...
    a salad bowl ..

    I try to find the area with the right inclination and cut leaving what I need

    fixed provisionally

    now the problem is how to fix the 2 different materials together the circle is polypropylene while everything else is in plexiglass, the two materials do not seem compatible with common glues
    I have liquid steel I try with this ...

    seems to hold very well.

    perfect I would say

    now it's the turn of the actual "turbine" support I take the exact measurements of the piece and cut with the DREMEL

    I have to strengthen the whole structure polypropylene is an ugly beast, I solved it temporarily with liquid steel but I need something more dense and workable, the parts to be glued are many and they must not come off
    after several researches I land on this .. a two-component fiberglass putty ...

    I must say once it hardens it becomes concrete and is perfect, even if it weighs down the structure a lot.

    now it's time to complete with the side element
    I take the measures well fixed procvvsoriamente with glue for methacrylate and after the ditch all with workable putty

    well fixed with other putty on the main structure

    it will take other small tweaks such as closing some small holes or making some parts smoother, but the bulk of the work is done

      I decided to create a led motherboard tray with relative I / O cover always with leds and themed mod cyberpunk 2077 !!!.
      This tray will be fixed to the support of the case that originally had to support the motherboard, but also given the need to build other parts I decided for this solution
      I start making the I / O panel from scratch, this motherboard does not have one more reason to make it, all the heatsinks of this Z390M PRO4 sponsored by ASROCK will also be painted with a theme! ..
      I trace all the dimensions from the original shield.

      a lot of patience but the result satisfies me ...

      I took my time and calmly the result came, everything fits together perfectly, measured and measured again many times ..

      this tray will substantially consist of two parts, the I / O box and another piece of acrylic left transparent inside on the long side, inside a led strip will be placed that will shoot the light through this acrylic giving a pleasant effect ... the logo will also be illuminated on the top of the box.

      I fix everything with cyanomethacrylate glue but I will strengthen everything with other strong glue and putty to eliminate imperfections.

      coat of primer to see where to stick to close any holes ..

      ready for the final paint job that I will do next, the paints have yet to arrive in the shop ..

      now let's start with the support

      I will drill the holes to pass the cables directly on this support
      so I mark the zones .. I work absolutely with precision if I'm wrong I have to redo the whole panel ... I would not be happy ..

      the hole for the cpu waterblock will also be made
      well guys stay tuned because there will be some good ones ...

        continue with the processing of the LED tray, the sleeved cables will pass through the structure

        cover panel that will be painted in metallic red, the prevailing color of our yaiba

        here the explanatory video but it's not over stay tuned ...

          hi guys, I proceed on other fronts
          support arrangement to fix the I / O cover on the motherboard I take advantage of a screw already present on the motherboard

          supports for fixing the panel steel rods cut with a threaded pipe cutter for M3 screws

          lower "fairing" cover panels and grille fixing for the 200 mm fan
          this side will be quite complex because there will be plates that will be overlapping

            hello everyone, I state that I am speeding up the processing of this mod because the work is so much,
            today is the turn of the front covers ...
            as I always do I start with a cardboard template to see the overall dimensions and folds I can cut and redo as I wish until the result is satisfactory
            only when I'm sure will I cut the acrylic

            after this I proceed with the cut

            finishing and measurement control

            now I will make cuts because part of the panel must not bend but remain straight and have no marks
            I could have done some additional covers but visually it would have been too heavy at the sight of the front design.

            well now there is the most delicate part the bending, I use a self-made bender that I use in all my mods
            this one

            place bits of metal there where I don't want the bender to leave heat marks

            and here it is all went well.

            these little unfolded bits will allow me to hide the ugly to see shock absorber hooks.

            and here they are assembled, they still need to be well finished

            see you soon guys.

              hi guys a lot of work today, as always I specify that all the pieces are hand-worked duqnue without the use of cnc or laser cuts

              well as always happens to me I redo the feet that I don't like them anymore so FEET 2.0 let's go !!

              I studied a design that goes well with the rest, I take the curves and corners of the case

              I prepare the threaded spacers to be inserted between one element and another.

              once tested, finished, sanded and double checked, I proceed with the assembly

              the elements overlap interspersed with data that I use as thickness and the cylinders previously cut and threaded
              if I wanted to widen the base of these feet all I have to do is insert more thick bolts on the external ones, but I will decide later.

              here it is concluded, obviously they will be inserted in the lower part of the anti-vibration rubber and painted in matt anthracite gray with metal signs, like other elements of the yaiba

              I just have to try them on the case to verify the stability and the visual effect.

              the trim has risen a few centimeters I don't mind also because another cover panel will be inserted under the case to emulate the engine bumper

              See you soon!!

                it continues without respite I work is a lot and time is running out ..
                today preparation of the side covers of the support arms, let's start ..

                I got a cardboard template to calculate how the piece will be made, after many cuts and resizing here are the parts to cut out and fold on the acrylic.

                still some small improvements and we are ..

                  today technical tests on color.
                  I finish the new feet by painting them with matt anthracite and then with a solvent silver finish.

                  no doubt about the talken products, even if they do charge, they are always at the top.

                  I help myself with a rag soaked in silver and slowly I do nothing but follow the edges and go over them if they are not sufficiently defined.

                  but now i can't wait to try this one

                  to be precise, the color of the yaiba kusanagi is a non-metallic anodized red even if this paint is the most similar and is more available on the market, the metallic paint has crystals that reflect the light
                  the color changes according to the reflected light.

                  this is I / O prepared previously.

                  also on here I will pass the silver to simulate the erosion.

                    today we proceed with the completion of the rgb i / o panel previously painted in metallic red

                    creation and application of decorative elements and ARGB leds

                    matt anthracite paint

                    here you can find all the processing steps


                    • #25
                      It is with great pleasure that I announce the addition of a new SHARKOON sponsor
                      who sent me these two spectacular peripherals that will be modded in cyberpunk 2077 yaiba kusanagi theme
                      let's talk about the SGK4 skiller rgb gaming keyboard and the SGM1 rgb mouse

                      here the unboxing


                      • #26
                        the led tray is finished use the small but very efficient ARGB 5V EKWB led strips
                        we were left to the construction of the 2 panels today painting of the upper panel installation of the leds and test

                        the metallic red to get as close as possible to the one in the sample is necessary to give a coat of white, with primer primer it tends to darken because this metallic color is not completely covering.

                        now the underside

                        white also serves to make the light extend better on the acrylic

                        I take this opportunity to paint even the motherboard and M2 heatsinks

                        since there are .... also some covers of the case.

                        here is the finished tray ..

                        for the most demanding small video with music ....


                        • #27
                          we proceed construction of the bumper ...

                          the covers on the top are divided into 2 parts to facilitate my work, the final part of the tail will be LED with cyberpunk 2077 logo

                          side covers also here I will make various pieces that will be joined a little at a time


                          • #28
                            well a lot of work .. modification of the frame (another time) on the back yaiba I turn the illuminated logo but to do this I need to create a space where to place the led strip I take advantage of the support.

                            ainting of the pistons, base of altracite gray and silver finish with solvete talken (a bomb)

                            and now silver finish, these pistons will hardly be seen but I want to take care of every aspect.

                            an LCD screen will be placed on the front the cyberpunk logo will be displayed in loop

                            in the meantime other panel painting ..


                            • #29
                              side panels where the air inlets will be present later everything will be clearer.

                              folding for 3 times

                              I realize that the acrylic has deformed in cooling down I have to fix it with putty to keep all the lines flat I apply some fiberglass putty to fill the curved areas and then some body filler which is much smoother and workable.

                              give a coat of primer to make sure that the surface is completely smooth and without holes.

                              much better but I already see that areas need retouching ..

                              I proceed with a coat of primer on the bracket frame (coolermaster) for the gpu and suspension arms after coat of anthracite gray


                              • #30
                                now it's time to install the 5 "LCD screen it will be positioned on the front and will contain the looped CYBERPUNK logo first I create the supports I do not want to see screws outside the case and I prepare the 2 guides on which the monitor will be mounted

                                I calculate the measures and thicknesses well

                                I found these beautiful threaded nuts, in Italy they count an eye but on aliexpress they pull them back ..
                                they have finally arrived and therefore I put everything together I drill a 4mm hole and place the data on top

                                with the soldering iron all I do is place it on top

                                with the soldering iron all I do is place it on top and as if by magic the acrylic around melts all around and sinks into butter and then cools down immediately

                                great a clean and fast job

                                now it's time for the very delicate stage placement

                                my faithful glue ..

                                to best position the whole use as data shims and washers.

                                there he is..
