Defyant's Light Blade I'm pretty much 70% done with modding my workshop and after recently adding my prised DIY bookshelf clone speakers and a triple monitor setup to the work space i decided that the stock PC cases just wern't doing it for me.... So after getting my hands on a massive stack of white plex ive decided to go nuts and do a quick scratch build. The mod was mostly inspired but gnome /insolent mods amazing scratch build Deep blue (formerly G-Frame) case mod. If you havn't see it pop over to Bittech and check out his amazing work. Anyways..... The sell. I wanted this build to be a case i can make copies of so it's pretty much ganna be really basic and all done from templates. I want to have half a dozen templates i can pull out and cut a case glue it up and pass it on. So while i'd love to go all disco on this one it's ganna be pretty boring soz. The area's to the top left and right of the screen is what i'm hoping to add some sexiness too! Like all Defyant mods of late this one starts with a pile of scrap plex! Then it's time to start making a mess in my new office and cut 7 equal size panels. The design is pretty random chosen cause it fits in the spot and i always want to do a D shaped PC mod. Decided to add a little more shape to keep it interesting. And then just because this is a sickness make 6 more of em! All that work just to throw away the middle..... It was @ this point i decided to make things a bit easier on my self and knock up a quick cutting table rather than use the scroll saw. An old piece of laminated wood and retired jigsaw get a reprieve. For the 10 mins of setup work this little table will cut 10 times faster than my scroll saw without the hassle of detaching the blade for every cut..... Literally 5 mins later these were all cut ready for router profiling..... Profiling is a simple job of making your template and then using that to make copies. The ruff cut has straight edges double sided to the the clean cut lines Process is repeated 6 more times but using the first as the template, Last but not least is to profile the outer as well. This gives me 7 pretty exact copies. Next is to cut up what will be the case... simple 4 wall box. I was going to use the same white plex but decided to try some frosted to get a bit of contrast. And just a qik mock up to show where this is all going. I may add an extra outer blade or 2 yet... looks a bit "chunky" with just the six. Plenty of room for 140mm fans too Found a bunch of this up in the stockpile.... i'll cut some up and see how the blades look around the blue.
