Makes my project kind of boring by comparison! I'll take on too!!!
Have a great day!
No delivery, pickup-only. My "desk" weights too much. Build to get split up in 6 main parts. The base plate alone was a challenge for my back
I filled the beer and coffee holder....
But hey, another sercret compartiment
Nope, I got my inspiration from:
We'll, that's flattering. I used that design for a while and then decided I could do better. I've been rebuilding for about 6 months now. I'll see if I can get some pictures up tonight.
Yours looks better than anything I can put together.
Edit: here you go
I built the subwoofer into the cabinet and glued everything so no vibration. The center, left and right front and rear speakers will be built into the pit as well. The 2 empty spaces on the left/right consoles fit 2 raspberry pi's that I'm programming to be graphical game controllers using kivy/python and an arduino. I just got in the next screen for the MCFD, and the center screen can dmirrioe either the left or right pi, or be an auxiliary screen for the gaming rig. I'm building the rig into the top cabinet, and that will be opened/closed via a linear actuator and hidden hinges. The chair is a deconstructed office chair that I built onto a custom stand that will be removable from the sides. When everything is done I'm painting it with a "hammered metal" paint and I've drafted my wife to use her Cricut to cut out test squadron stencils to paint in yellow. I'm doing everything out of 1/2" and 1/4" MDF (recycled toilet paper) because it's cheap and easy to work with.
Well she's gorgeous. I want to build one now. Haha.
Very well done Marc.
Wow. Good work.
Y'all are inspirational.
I completely disagree!!! Yours looks way better. Yours is built as a real sim pit with custom controls, rig and sound integrated, really awesome.
I build mine to be functional, everything adjustable. I started building in february, when I finally had all stuff together. Still working on some details like where to place my cheap hobby subwoofer.
Very very very interested is the Cricut Letter or Ledger?
I'm not sure what you mean by 'letter or ledger'.
European system for paper format is A5, A4, A3, A2.... A0. 2x A4 = A3, 2x A3 = A2
The US format for A4 is Letter, I googled and found ledger or tabloid.
Oh... paper size. So her machine can cut a design up to 12 imperial units wide, and up to 72" long. I'm not sure what size I want the stencil to be yet, but I'm probably going to use the yellow jacket design and then have her cut out little Explor emblems to put on the sides like kill markers used On the fighters/bombers in WWII.
€52,50 for a reusable stencil
Damn. That's not cheap. Not cheap at all.
Yeah, 62 cents a sheet, and I can make as many as I want at home.
This really sucks, I like the idea of TEST logo on the sides since I want to paint my "desk" anthracite, but €50 is a lot of money. The shot down Explor emblems are maybe a little overkill, space will go out.
You want me to sent you a stencil? Figure out what you want and let me know. I'll see if I can get it printed out and mail it to you.
You should post your build here becasue it is awesome: https://testsquadron.com/threads/show-off-your-rig.1306/page-19
SAM,! Time you hit me with a bucket of coffee and a bottle of JD....
Is it the long weekend yet?
Thanks allot When it is ready I will. Right now it is paint ready, a few small details still have to be done.
