I would like to take this opportunity to thank EVGA for supporting this build
The EVGA products will be used are:
I will be using the Coolermaster Masterair MA610P
Click the product name for more details :)
The initial sketch was uploaded earlier and here you can see the concept of the scratch build will be a big flower.
I decided to use wood as the base material because it is lightweight and strong enough to hold the parts. It also gives the natural look of the stem. I prepared a plyboard to cut into the curved shape of the stem.
I layered two ply so that it will have a rigid structure.
I wrapped the base stem with paper and coated it with resin. The purpose of this process is to create a filler inside.
I applied fiberglass and resin on top of the stem structure.
I applied three times so that it will not be easily damaged.
I used r10-10 for the final coating.
For the last process of the fabrication, I used a body filler.
For the very details, I used air dry clay and epoxy clay to achieve my desired result. I sculpted it for days to have the same look on my sketch.
The swivel is installed above the stem structure
I used an old itx case for the motherboard tray. I measure the psu so that it will fit correctly. I also used wood to support the tray, because it is lightweight.
I primed the stem structure. I hand-painted the stem to have a natural-looking effect.
I used acrylic paint for the line detailing and sprayed some clear lacquer on it.
The stem structure is almost done, I will be adding some weathered accents. I picked this color scheme to match the CMWS 2018 color.
I used acrylic sheets as my main material for the petals. It is easy to work on specially using scroll saw.
Bending of the petals using acrylic bender.
I used heatgun to bend the curved form of the petals.
I used my cutter plotter to cut vinyl stickers for the decals
Priming of the petals.
Assembly of the pc itself. I also tested the leds if it's working
Assembly is done and it's time to take pictures for my final submission.
