    When we were back from the German Casemodding Mastership we closed the opening on the Backside of the Bust and made a bigger Opening in the Front, because that we could easier show of the inside of Boba without removing the Jetpack from his back.(And the Opening is also much bigger so that it is easier for us to mount the Hardware inside) After that we added a few layers of fibre glass to all parts so that they get more rigid and sturdy...we didn´t had problems with the Bust up to this point but we wanted to make sure that we won´t get any problems in the future. Because the new opening is much bigger and the weight of the Build has to be carried ... We also build a new mainboard tray and a new mounting for the GPU. The GPU will be connected to the Mainboard through a CM Riser Cable which will be routed along the Backside of the Mainboard Tray. That way the most of the Cables will be routed invisible. As next we painted the Mainboard Tray and the Inside of the Torso and we also added a few magnets which will keep the Front in Place when the Bust is closed...... Last but not least we overworked the Position of the Bust on it´s socket and gave the Socket also a new paintjob, before we could mount the Hardware inside and filled the Loop again to check if everything is ok.....

    At this point there were approx. 310 pieces left, which had to be printed, so we grabbed our 2nd Printer and shared the work between both of them. While one Printer was printing the parts for the Torso, the 2nd Printer started to print the Parts we needed to build the Head. So from now on, we worked on 2 Parts at the same time to save a bit of time (and still it should take more than 3 month to print all parts - even though we printed 24/7 even over the christmas holidays) After finishing the Printing Process of the first Head Parts we directly started to put them together so that we could start the sanding process, so that we will get an nice and even surface..... Then, after we welded & glued the first parts together we also started to add some bondo....so that we can start to smooth the surface with a lot of sanding.... I think overall each piece was sanded and filled with bondo a couple of times until the surface was so smooth and even that we could add some primer to it. And naturally beside the sanding we were printing the next batch of pieces.... When the Printing Process of the Head was completed we directly switched to the next parts, and started to print the pieces for the Jetpack of Boba Fett, naturally he needed his backpack and it were only 70-80 parts to print.....so let´s give him a chance to Escape the Sarlacc Pit.... As Soon as the printing for the Jetpack & Torso was finished, we could start to build both arms, each Printer 1 Arm.....and another approx. 150 Parts to go..... When Both Torso and Head were sanded and filled with bondo, we attached the Head as fast as we could to the Torso, so that we could make a solid connection between those 2 Parts. After attaching the Head and welding everything together we filled the complete Head and the Upper Part of the Torso with some liquid foam so that the connection between those parts will be very strong. We already knewed that we have to Transport Boba to the German Casemodding Mastership laying on his back, because he would fit in our Cars in an upright position. And while we had to transport him in a laid position we had to ensure that the head won´t come loose. After filling in the Foam, we waited until it was dry and then we added a solid layer of fibre glass under the foam (in the Torso) so that the Foam won´t be visible when someone looks inside. After that we did the same to the Arms and Blaster, just to be save that nothing falls apart.... Somewhere in between we grabbed the Torso and added an opening to the backside so that we could mount the Hardware in it (later we closed that opening again, and replaced it with a bigger opening on the Front of the Body - that way you get a better look on the hardware inside) In the time between the most of the Hardware arrived.... After the surface of the Body was as smooth as we wanted ....we started to add some primer and after it was dry we started the rest of the Painting Process which took us nearly a week to be complete..... As next we started to build a small socket on which we could mount the Bust. Inside this socket we placed the Radiators for the Watercooling and also the PSU..... And then there was that moment where we had to put everything together, so that we could show BOBA for the First time to an audience at the German Casemodding Mastership....

    This is our Second Project for the CMWS2019.... it will be a scratch Build Project and we already started the Building Process in November 2018. This Project will be Based on one of the most Popular Bounty Hunters in the Galaxy - Boba Fett. We Plan to build a Bust of his upper Body which will be mounted on a Base which will contain the PSU and Radiators for the Custom Watercooling Loop. It will look like this when we´re finished.... Before we could start the Printing Process of approx. 360 Parts (only for the Bust) we had to optimize rescale and optimize our Model for the 3d Printing Process. But it was worth the time, because now i theoretically could wear his armor by myself. For the Printing Process we cutted the whole model into little pieces which could be handled by our Printer and finally started the Printing Process....... Like you can see, after finishing the Printing Process of those small chunks, we directly started to sand their surface and started to weld them together like a giant 3d Puzzle.....
  4. As next we cut out a new Grill for the Top of the Case. Therefor we prepared a matching pattern and cut everything out of an Aluminium sheet. In the next steps we made a bend in this part like the original Top Grill has, so that we can mount it on Top of the Case once it is painted...... Beside that we finished the sanding process on the Case Handles and started to polish them.... Beside that we also put Primer on the first Parts of the outer shell, so that we could start the Painting Process as next.....
  5. Hi @ all, this Project was build for the Gamescom 2019, it was used at the Recaro Booth to show it together with their new Gaming Chairs. Like you can imagine we used the Recaro Colors (Black and White) for this build. We started this Project with a stock C700M Case which we took completely apart in the first step so that we could change the Colors of nearly all parts.... Before we continued the disassembly Process, we also made a quick template for the Grill on Top of the case so that we could recontruct the Shape and make our own pattern which matches the rest of our build.... As next we started to Sand and Polish the Casehandles. The upper Side of the handles will be polished the downside will be painted in the next steps. ....

  7. It´s time for another update: In the last days we continued the painting process of the Awesome Mixtape.... As next we prepared everything so that we could mount the small Speakers from the Logitech sound system inside our Earpieces... After that we prepared the holder for the earpieces which will connect them with the rest of the headphone.... As next we prepared the frame which will hold both earpieces.... For that we took a sheet of thin wood and cut it into stripes. Then we took the first strip and mounted it onto the edges of another sheet of wood which had the right widht so that we could use it as a spacer to keep the right shape during the next step. Then we took all those other wood strips and glued them layer by layer on the bended ground layer. After that we fixed everything with a few clamps and let it dry till the other day.... Beside that we also painted the first parts of the earpieces...and finished the work on the Tape... We also started to assemble the headphone but it will take another few days to really finish it....(gladly this isn´t a part of the main Concept so it hasn´t to be finished within the contest) But for the Contest, our Time was now over so we had to take a few final pics.....more pics.....the last work on the Headphone and another video will follow.....
  8. Next Update: We prepared the Tape for the painting process... then we finished the painting process of the Fan Grills....and mounted them for a quick test on the radiator.... We also painted the giant headphone plug with a first layer of laquer... Beside that we also started the work on the Headphone itself. For that we grabbed the router and cut out a few pieces of wood from which we are going to build the speaker part of the headphones As speaker we´re going to recycle an old logitech sound system which we already took apart... and we already integrated the speaker in our headphones.....
  9. As next we build 2 mounting brackets for our Tape, the brackets will be mounted inside the sidepanel so that we could slide in the tape while the Sidepanel is open and still be able to close the sidepanel with the tape inside.... Beside that we prepared & printed a few fan grills to cover the open side of the Radiator.... And we also added the last letterings to the sidepanel ....
  10. Today we have a bunch of smaller Updates.... First....we gave the GPU a nice little silver accent... Then we prepared the electronics for the Walkman functions so that we also could prepare the cables for those parts..... After that we mounted the Front so that we could connect the volume slider with the belt system behind the front.... Then we mounted the GPU inside the Case.... and we mounted the sidepanels.... Beside that we started to build a Tape for our Walkman....
  11. Time for the next Update: As next step we mounted the first hardware components so that we could decide in which way to route the cables and also prepare the first bendings on the watercooling tubes.... We also add the inscribing on Front & Top of the Case so that only the letterings on the sidepanel is missing.... Then we fill the WC Loop with coolant for a quick leak test...and installed the LED Panel...
  12. Time for the next Update: At first a small video of the last metal works on the top and a short test of the motorized Sidepanel.... As next we started to bring some light into the darkness.... So we grabbed a piece of plastic and made a few cuts so that we got a first layer of a bottom plate. After that we took a string of WS2812 LEDs and cutted it into pieces, which we placed on the bottom plate.... After that we prepared the connections to the arduino which will run the animations on the strip (the arduino will be connected to one of the internal USB Headers on the motherboards so that we can run more difficult animations directly from the PC) And then we made a first test..... As next we cut out a layer of plexiglas with the same size like the bottom layer and covered one side with mirror foil. This 2nd layer will be placed over the LEDs so that they are not visible while their turned off.... Here are another few pics from the Test and also a short video.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ML2ppWNxWE&feature=youtu.be
