Ye I was thinking steampunk and actual hydraulics and stuff.
Some sick craftsmanship. Really great work. thumbs up.
wow great work!
Amazing! Wish I had skills like that.
Time for final assembly. Bit time consuming but fun
So everything went out and the wood got polished a final time with some carvarnish and canvas. Then the cable combs were predrilled and installed. Then taken out again
Then panels were put in and the cables thrown there.
Bad picture but that small box keeps all the 230 volt. So we get cables for the screen, DAC and psu while using minimal space
After a few hours of getting frustrated the combs were installed. This is a 2 man job one guy holding the comb while the other inserts 72 cables in order
Still got to watercut a comb or 2 for the 24pin atx and satapower so this is a bit of a mess still. Good enough to get running though.
Apologies for those expecting the newest coolest gpus etc. This is my old trusted 3930k-i7 and 2 gtx 980s. I trust this rig and there wasn't money to buy brand new stuff
Work continues but not that much longer left
Lush. I do get a bit excited over a nice tidy cable bundle. My friend sends me photos of his best work as a data cabling engineer!
Holy cabling Batman!- cant wait to see the final pictures as its going to be epic
This is outstanding!
I can't keep thinking how cool it'd be if that glass panel was motorized and then came up to be the monitor
Easily the best desk case I've ever seen.
There's something about this I really don't like!
Oh yeah thats it, It's not mine.......Damn fine desk there matey.... Well Jealous. Stunning effort..Well done
That's an idea I've been playing around with but I'd rather use something that makes no noise. I'll get around making that some day..
Hydraulic lifters, will still make a noise.
As will pneumatic air, but it'll sound awesome! Kaaaaatooooooooooosh
Been toying around with an idea for an airplane inspired desk. There the pneumatics would make sense.
Well small one but here goes:
The pipe strengtheners are done. Testmounted them already but you will see them again. Basically drew them up in CAD and watercut some 1365 hardened steel (10mm thick), This is the biggest one holding 3 pipes but there's about 16 parts total to this system.I tried to rock the pipes really hard but they didn't move so hopefully they will hold for transportation.
Also the ODAC and usb hub is ready for use. And also the custom Headphone stand to match
Also here I was worried about strength so the plate (6mm) between the odac and the usb hub is welded to the frontplate which is 4 mm. Then bolted through with m5 screws hopefully this will survive daily use.
Not to make marketing but I love these cans. Pure delight
Absolutely stunning workmanship.
This desk is an absolute beast and i love the attention to detail and the amount of time you've put into it. Nice one. The saddest part is is that it will be finished at some point soon and we wont see anymore of it...
That's where you are mistaken It will cycle through Dreamhack, Assembly and Habitare. Then the custom keyboard will be made, the lamp and the mic-stand
And theeeen at some point the desk 2.0 will start. (already being planned)
Excellent! I do love a good build log. Makes me think about needing to pick mine back up again... (I have a wooden lasercut case i'm working on in here somewhere. Very early stages though.)
So I was invited to compete at the Dreamhack Masters modding competition. And some problems had to be solved so here's some pictures on how you move a pc that weighs well over 200kg when packaged
Sturdy package. about 500 screws glued waterproof and reinforced. Also coated in dampening materials on the inside
Up she goes!
By all accounts the lift was succesful, The build will be considered complete at the end of this month where I have some decent photos of it
I have to ask - fluid left in? At least none of it will leak out of the crate! If it leaks you can just pour it back in
