It's time to start making video card housing.

3D model it’s good, but need to check the actual layout and dimensions.

Natural size mockup from cardboard:

206dbf8b0705.jpg

Place a video card inside:

Cut from fiberglass side parts of the housing.

Aluminum darby will determine the angle between the sidewall parts during assembly:

Side parts assembly via pull-out rivets:

Aluminum softer then fiberglass so its easy to flush rivet heads:

Lets make front part of video card housing:
