|Artkast:: Mods : Dell Case Window||[Changes] [Calendar] [Search] [Index]|
Step one: Get Supplies
What I used: Dremel (with swivel head) Dremel Heavy Duty Cutting Discs ( I have been through like 7 so far in this mod) Dremel Sanding Stone (shaped like cyclinder) Sandpaper Masking Tape Acrylic cutting knife (or exacto) Pliers (needle nose and Regular) Acrylic sheets (found at Home-Depot, etc.) A case Panel to tear in to Safety Goggles (especially needed when cutting the metal) Rubber tubing (to attach the window to the case Sharpie Marker
-- I first began this mod by drawing out what I wanted my window to look like. I used a simple design really wasnt going for anything to flashy. Maybe next time.
-- Grab your Dremel and cut away this is not as easy as it sounds, Also you might want to use masking tape around the edges of your case. This might make the task a little easier.
-- Take a break grab something to drink by now you should have inhaled enough plastic fumes to choke over.
-- Sand away the rough edges inside your cuts just completed.
Step one: -- Grab your acrylic sheets
Step two: -- Do a rough measurement to the case's panel opening you just cut. Mark this with a sharpie.
Step three: -- Grab you knife and gently score the acrylic at first. Next repeat this about five times. After the scoring the acrylic should (maybe with a little force) should break apart. -- Acrylic is not the easiest stuff to work with in the world:
Step four: -- Mask off your desired case window design. -- Pull out the dremel and go to work ( I used the heavy dty discs for this also.
