Some more progress:


Made the upper axis shaft for the blind construction. Since it will be visible, I choose copper of course. I will try to test this new construction next week.


Here are close ups / Left=bearing / Right=motor


And here's the top piece mesh, repainted.


4x120mm fans mounted. You can see the fill port in the middle.


And here's a test fit with the keyboard/storage unit on top.


Another shot...


Here's a VGA cable for the projector which I had to mod some, due to some lack of space.


And here is my "lens-focus-dial-extender" Tech Lego and some distance pieces, all very DIY :D


Here's how it works, pretty simple...


Just use the lens protection/screwdriver...


... and adjust the focus by screwing. Quite proud of the solution :dremel:

No, not really, unless you have fingers like chorizos :) But it's not the most ideal placement for a focus dial I guess.

More progress:

Intstalled the PSU today, the Be Quiet! 550w. Just realized I got lots of cables in this build. Got the PC setup, projector, speaker system, LCD, lighting modules, joystick pads etc... Can't believe I'm actually going to fit everything in there.


Here's a shot where you can see the two holes for cable management. The mess you see here are cables for some switches and the projector.


I installed the LEDs. Decided to have two strips for increased lighting, and then use the dim knob for reducing if needed.


Some strip soldering.


Here's a quick test using the remote. Red...

... and blue.


Then I continued on that new blind contruction. Here are some cover pieces in walnut...


Outer side panel. The small motor is mounted into the cover piece with epoxy, a perfect fit.


With everything installed, I attached two cords to the blind. This was actually very tricky, and took me about two days to get it right. First I had to find the right type of cord. Tried several, fishing line, boat rope, regular sewing cotton    etc. I realized I couldn't use any elastic cord, due to the weakness of motor I think. When using fishing line, I got sort of a springback from the tension. I finally got it right using this one, a natural string.


Getting the alignment right took me several tries, but here it is.


You can see the space I had to work with here. Between fans and shaft there's aprox 2mm of margins.


The transparent LCD need backlight to work, so I had to place the sprips with presicion. Here's the blind pulled out to its limit, and you can see the light strip sneaking up just in front of the canvas.


Last shot it with walnut bezel installed. I'm happy I managed to get the blind up as far as I did, covering almost the entire screen. The blind construction has been a real pain, but this is what you get when adding a new element this late in a process.


Now I have to find and install some limit switches for the blind... Then it's time for final assembly :lol::lol::lol:

I have a question about UV. I just got my purple UV LED strip today, and it doesn't seem to react with the coolant, at all. The coolant I'm using is the "Feser One 1L UV Black". I've never worked with UV before, but shouldn't it react?

Well, seems like the Feser Black UV is pretty sad when it comes to UV reaction. I thereby decided to ditch the UV idea. Well well...

But I have an update:

First, I made some minor adjustments in the loop layout. Removed one of the res mounts, moved the res a bit more to the right. This was to get the fillport centered.


Here's another shot. As you can see I've drained the loop. Will make a refill when everything assebled.


A 2mm sheet of glass...


And here's the transparent LCD, finally ready to be mounted inside the chassis.


A good fit I suppose. You can see the PCB of the LCD touching the blind construction. No margins, what so ever =)


Short flat cable, HDMI.


A pretty good fit there as well.


Then finally, I could put the two chassis segments together and see the resluts of 1000+ hrs.


The backside, well, need some serious cable management. There's cables EVERYWHERE, don't know where to start really =) Give me few more day...


Until then, here's some quick tests playing with the RGB strip.

Green


Purle

Update:


Been having some real issues with the transparent LCD. I don't know if the PCB is damaged or something. It worked a week ago, but now it will not operate. With the original 5v power supply, nothing happens. The LED on the supply lit when connected to the wall, but starts to blink as I plug it into the LCD. When I then tried using a 5v line from the PSU instead, the LCD works. But after a few seconds, I smell somethings burning, I see a little smoke coming from the LCDs PCB and I disconnect it. Did this 3 times, trying to locate the damage somehow.

Here's a close up of the PCB. It was hard to determine the source of the smoke, but it's one of the component inside the red circles.



Here's the original plug connected(used the same plug when using 5v line on PSU), and you can see that is does not go all the way in. I don't think it has anything to do with it, but I need all the help I can get here.




Any thoughts?  :sigh::sigh::sigh:

Absolutely amazing work. Love the craftmanship.

Your mouse almost resembles an old Amiga mouse. Just angle the sides a little and it will be perfect.

Cannot wait to see your next update.

Thanks guys. I've got a strange boot problem.

While working on Revelation, I have to keep it upside down due to the construction. Everything works fine upside down. But as soon as I flip it around, I cant get it to boot. I get the classic start up with everything's running for 5 secs, no display, then reboots, over and over again. What could be the issue here?

I have no ideas, at all. Something is triggered when I flip the computer around I guess, but what? So strange, because everything seems to be in place. I'm desperate, and open for any guesses right now.

Make sure you aren't somehow shorting the power button circuit.  If you are, it will do exactly what you describe.

Yeah, I'm ggoing to look into it more tomorrow. But why would it short only when the chassis is turned upside down. There's no pressure on the power cable or anything. Well, will look into it tomorrow. Thanks!

The issue is sorted out, finally. It was one of the RAM sticks actually. During first leak test I must've been sloppy, and a single drop of fluid got into the RAM connectors.

Got new sticks now, and I'm back on track. I can finally finish this beast...

I made a refill using the new fillport on top.


And then I made a backplate in stained ply for final touch.


Final pictures coming up next!!

Over 1000 hrs went into this machine. Had a lot of setbacks in the end, but I guess it was worth it.


Well, here are finals... Hope you'll enjoy!

Really incredible - both the woodworking and the overall design are superlative.  I love the complications of the roller shade, the onboard controllers and the overall packaging.

Congratulations on a really original, interesting, and finely crafted project quizz_kid.  I've suggested it before, but you've managed to combine some highly talented wood and metal work with a kind of super geek design approach which fires the curiosity and imagination.  Much more than just an arcade machine, it’s also great art and I’m sure a talking piece for years to come.
