The Time
« on: 05-February-17, 18:13:47 »






My project is called “The Time”, characterized by elegance, precision and attention to details while looking the aesthetics impact by using colours’ contrast like silver/gold. The structure will be supported by aluminum profiles wrapped in mahogany and will provide the base of the case in which will be housed the PC liquid cooling system. From the base there are 8 polished aluminum pillars which will allow the securing of water tanks made with green plexiglass.

Inside one of these tanks a clock is placed and the PC cooling liquid. In the other tank there are the hardware parts, also set while trying to organize the cables in a non-chaotic way.

The planning took a lot of time for an accurate study of the system of perfect gears to recreate the correct time. After it switch to draw on specific softwares 2D and 3D the gears that are carried out with cnc pantograph in inner sections and the teeth are manually operated .  Creation of the linchpins to keep suspended the clock through stainless steel cables on tank containing the liquid cooling of the pc.

Anodization of various gears, pins and plates both for an aesthetic factor and to avoid galvanizing Because the clock will be immersed in the coolant.

The plexiglass has arrived and I start immediately with the first processing. Chamfering the edges of all the sheets of 45 ° to match them to perfection. It's a special plexiglass called Soft Fluo green. It has a fantastic effect with chrome parts.

The structure. Plexiglass is the right chose to show the contrast between chromium plating and golden details. Mahogany gives elegance to the structure and every detail is considerated. Top base with ducts flat to show Gosumodz washers. The clock is the clock !

Create a hole in the top  to manage the cables and the led inside the clock reservoir. The hole will be filled with glue to make the reservoir waterproof.

It is very rare I even bother about PC mods, as often they are all similar and too basic. But this one, is special one. Well done on this, I really like it.
How heavy is it when filled with liquid?

Thank you very much Nichrome :biggthumbsup:

I always try to distinguish myself from the mass by creating particular Mods.
Also considering the liquid the weight is about 50 Kg also due to the mahogany, aluminum, plexiglass and hardware.
