hehe, you're right Trotter

The front grill plate, inspired by my friends Ric and jeff, aka the Mod Brothers



the Antec 300 intake fan cages are off-center.. I want the option of mounting 2x 120mm fans directly on the backside of the grill, so they're located in the center. The grill is 1/4" thick!!

Thanks guys! We need to vent our 1/4" thick blue translucent beneath the cnc milled dual 120mm intake grill. Note, I've kept the green masking tape backing on to avoid any scratches.



Here I am tracing the inside portion of the machined intake grill, note I went aropund the letters too





I'll use a jigsaw w/ 18 TPI blade to cut out the center portion of the acrylic, I make the initial cut with reinforced 1.5" cutting wheel attachment



Using a hand file to clean up the edges of the blue translucent acrylic

Good to hear! cnc milling of the acrylic top panel, this 3/16" thick acrylic, it will hold 2x 120mm fans in the center in single file towards the rear. The 2x 120mm fans will mount beneath the the cover with the fins going over the fan blades.



Acrylic mounted in KURT vises


Clear Acylic Block measures 1-1/4" THICK


Anyone hungry for CNCed Acrylic Cole Slaw?!




To our surprise, the acylic milled very nicely with minimal scoring
