To Make a Glass Pyramid Computer Case, you have to cut your pyramid base to be fourteen inches square. After that, cut the sides of the pyramid so that the base side is fourteen inches wide and each of the other sides will be 13 and 3/8 inches long. You need to set the angle on your saw so that the 13 and 3/8 inch cuts have an inward angle of 33.8 degrees. You must cut the 14 inch side with an angle of 31.7 degrees. You should cut four triangles of plexiglass to these specifications.
Then, Sand the edges of the pyramid sides until they are smooth. You can Use a sanding block to keep from rounding the edges. Next, fill the applicator bottle with acrylic cement. You have to set one of the sides on a non-corrosive work surface with using the angle cuts facing up. You need to Line up one of the other sides so the mitered joints line up.
When the joints are perfectly aligned, you must run the applicator along the joint. You should gently squeeze out the cement. You can hold the pieces in place for one to two minutes so that the cement sets. You have to repeat for the other side piece and for the fourth piece. You need to wait twenty four hours for the cement to completely cure.
Forth, Drill holes in the bottom piece at each corner. You must set the four side pieces on the bottom so that the pyramid is centered on the base. You should Slide one corner off of the edge of your work space. You can drill up through the base into the corner of the pyramid. You have to insert a computer screw into the hole to hold the pyramid in place.
You need to repeat for all four corners. You must realign the pyramid each time you drill a hole. After that, remove the mounting screws and the pyramid top. You should set the ATX motherboard on the base. You can Mark the mounting points for the board.
You have to remove the board. You can drill holes for the mounting hardware. You need to Install the mounting hardware. Then, test fit each of the components that you want to include in the computer. You must make sure that you will have enough room for the expansion cards to be inserted into the motherboard.
You should work your way up toward the tip of the pyramid with the smaller components. Next, make mounting points and holes in the side of the pyramid with the rotary cutting tool. You can cut out a hole for the power supply fan. You have to Drill holes through the plexi glass for the screw mounts to hold the power supply in place. You need to do the same for the hard drive and optical drive rails.
You must mount the motherboard to the base. Forth, install all of the components into the pyramid. You should plug the wires into the components. You can install the cards into the motherboard. You have to set the pyramid on top of the base.
You need to Tilt back one edge and plug all of the power and peripheral wires into the motherboard. You must secure the pyramid to the base with the screws.
