I don't really see where you're going with the window.

As I said in my first post, it's going to be my picture. You can see by the images that it is actually a depiction of my avatar. I've had the same avatar for years. It's the perfect embodiment of me -- Grump. I couldn't personalize this case any better if I tried.

Seeing that your avatar doesn't work, it makes it a bit hard to see where you're going with it. Don't get so defensive, especially when the fault is on your side.

Also, you really shouldn't post personal pictures on the Internet unless you're ready for some sort of criticism. I know it's not "good morals" thinking that way, but this IS the Internet and doesn't require them.

Grump - for your avatar and/or signature to show up, you have to "buy" them with karma in the special privelages shop here.

Yes, thank you, BalefireX, I'd read about that the other day. Just haven't had time until now. But, I did show pictures of my avatar in my images and thought I described what I was doing well enough.

----------------------------------------------

When I left the other day, I had made the basic cutout for the acrylic panel. As Syberz so cleverly alluded to, I want this to more than just a 2 dimensional, flat window; I want it to have depth. My avatar has character and I want to bring some of that out in a way you don't often see in your standard case window.





I saw a reply to a thread about case cutting yesterday and a member suggested that you couldn't do cuts that were intricate and had sharp turns. Although I did make some cuts with the Dremel for this project, I did it to show the variety of tools used for cutting cases and acrylics. In fact, most of the cuts I make on my projects are made with a jigsaw. It can cut the fine details, sharp curves and do it quicker.

Those feature lines and the perimeter of the cutout I want to show black acrylic behind. When you look at my avatar (thanks to GideonX), you can see the black outline and features and this is what I would like to show in a bit more dimension.





As you can see, there's an awful lot of filing and sanding to do, even with accurate cuts. Of course, the background or body of the design is orange. So, this is where the dual layers come in.











Everyone tells me I got a big mouth. ;)

The plan is to mount 2 80mm fans in my mouth. Should be cool. Get it? Cool.

Okay, time for me to go to bed.  :zzz:

I really like the fact that you're venturing away from the standard clear window; should look really nice. What are you going to use to attach the window?

Also, im suspicious to say the least that those are your "friends".

So, with you subtlely saying that you're full of hot air (my interpretation of the fans in the mouth), I must say that I too am suspicious.

That case is coming along nicely. I canít wait to see the finished piece. Also, even though the pic with Porcha demonstrates importance of safety Iím still unclear. Maybe another pic where Heather is showing us how to use a chainsaw in a safely manner would help all of us understand better.  :D Good luck to you on the rest of the project.
