Tiger Tank Computer Case Summary: 1. Case was inspired by the World of Tanks game. 2. Tank model was designed from scratch in SketchUp using game footage and reference photos of real tanks. 3. Case is entirely 3d printed in ABS plastic 4. The tank is a fully functional RC vehicle. Treads move and the tank can be driven around with a RC controller. (left, right, forward, reverse). 5. Turret moves left/right/up/down and contains the internals of a wifi PTZ camera. Turret and camera are controlled via an Android tablet. 6.

I have made all the design models available on Thingiverse.com, if you have a 3d printer you can print your own copy of my case. Note this is challenging case to assemble. The Build: I started this case in February 2014. I didn't post a build log at that time. I'm now upgrading and changing out hardware to enter this into the Cooler Master CASE MOD World Series. I previously entered it in the Modders-Inc Casemod contest at Quakecon 2014. It took first place in the fabrication contest and made the September 2014 cover of Computer Power User magazine. The amount of time that was put into this case was astronomical, and I am proud to present this case. This log will detail its original build and highlight its transformation and upgrades.
