ONE OF MY MAIN INTENTION ABOUT THIS MOD WAS TO USE MOSTLY SCRAP ELEMENTS TO MAKE THE SCRATCH-BUILD 

 

So I started to think about a build which will not require any parts from an existing case...which will be completely made outside the traditional pc case layout. and it struck my mind after I saw inwin's one piece metal sheet bending case...The S frame...then I thought NO I will not do it exactly like them...got to give it a unique touch of my own....then I started to work with bending a huge Acrylic sheet to give it a desired form to accumulate my pc components in it...and here started my SCRATCH CURVZ build...

I have 1st started with a 5mm acrylic sheet then

I started to bend it in the desired place where I want to accumulate the pc hardware such as motherboard, Psu and other things....

the bend was the hardest part to do in this mod as I didn't have any professional tool to bend the acrylic

This Build was started almost a year ago but due to a great leg injury I couldn't finish it at all....and HOPING TO FINISH IT IN THIS CMWS 2019...

it was the hard part to bend all the curves in the right section for the component to fit perfectly.....it was a little bit trial and error but still the outcome was good I also fit the dvd-rw to check if the gap is enough in the front part to fitDSC_2346.thumb.jpg.ffe4479cf974589e8b12001d15aa2313.jpg

The basic curving was done after some days to make it in a shape so that I can find out the correct place to put my hardware’s in. After making the basic curve my challenge was to make it stand without any support so I tried that and later on I have put a mark in the top part to make it compatible to mount at least three 120mm fans

After the major curves were done...I started doing the hole for the fan mount....in the top part I have done 3 fan mount hole...so can I can even attach a radiator in that place....DSC_2363.thumb.jpg.08c252005dc4335fd301a439b0f3ad8e.jpg

Test GPU attachment mechanism was done after the fan holes..and it seems it's gonna be ok....though I have a little doubt about modifying this afterwards if it doesn't works the way I want...

I wanted to make the case in a way so that it can be used vertically and horizontally...

Test with a dummy motherboard

This doesn't seem bad but if there's any sagging issue it will be modified with something else

DSC_2442.thumb.jpg.219aedd509b63732ec50e7be620f6cae.jpg

 

here's the supporting pillar which will be used to mount those pci cards..:)

Now I tried to add the other screw poles to see if it fits the base acrylic nicely or not......

After that I cut the PSU fan mounting hole so that the fan of the psu can intake air easily without any restriction, after that the angle mounting procedure was started

I will give the whole build a rusty and also battle damaged look so a lot of stuffs have been modded imperfectly to show everything during a battle doesn't goes as nice as it's planned...the top fan cut was little offset in one side which will be finished  later...

Another Acrylic sheet was added to cover up the back part of the case also to support the the case from the backside so that it doesn't wobble

The supporting poles were drilled which was shown above in the previous post...

Here's the acrylic sheet which was bent  from the sides to get attached by the pole....in order to be mounted at the back part of the case

As it will be a open bench type case so I will keep the main panel open so hardware's can be swapped easily in any way....that's why decided to go with barbwire type wire frame for the side panel.....

I have made the color white so it can be visible easily....:)
