Category: Scratch Build
Description: I present you the duo Da Module Thingy and it's dock Leetfoot. Both are completely handmade scratch build, I didn't use any prebuilt parts, I didn't use CNC or 3D printing. Da Module Thingy was crafted to be my main PC, it is a mid sized case, everything was handmade to craft it I used some new aluminium and some recovered scraps, it had to look like a sleek looking Sci-fi Module, something you can take with you when you move from your home/ base to your starship, or to save lives, or whatever cool reason behind the need to move it, your choice. Thanks to the Cooler Master RGB controller and the two 200 mm Masterfans, I was able to give life to the original concept and they look like BIG afterburners with a lot of power inside the module. The black PU leather wrapped shells have some nice contrast against the brushed aluminium, and I love the quilted pattern texture, it is supple which is a plus. The handles were wrapped for safety and comfort with black paracord 550, to give some style I wrapped them with a pattern that pay homage to the Tsukamaki, is the way that Samurai swords handles were wrapped. Leetfoot is Da Module Thingy's dock, you need it in a starship, it's composed by 115 parts, 8 fingers with 8 sections each it was a consequence of Da Module Thingy octagonal gem shape. Like Da Module Thingy it has been cut hammered and bended by hand, I got inspiration for the "fingers" from Octopuses and Squids, it already had 8 fingers so why not? This way Leetfoot's fingers can be configured in a lot of different positions thanks to their chains like structure. For Safety Leetfoot has a security lock system on the top of it's backbone prevent the case to fall off. Build time about 6 months for Da Module Thingy and about 3 months for Leetfoot. The hardware is not it's strong point, it doesn't have super dandy spec, but it was built with full compatibility with any M-Atx Motherboards, Gpu up to 370 mm or 17.5 inches long and Standard ATX PSU, so it's easily upgradable.
