    Niiiice. That's gonna look awesome once it's hooked up.

    I'm gonna have to learn how to make something like that. I already have a plan for it too
    sweet work on the case so far!

    Thanks I just need to figure out where I'm going to mount the servo then make some mounts for it and it'll be pretty much ready to go! There will just be a nice bondo coat to fill in the gaps and then some black spray paint to cover it all up. I'm just not sure @ this point if I want to do gloss black or matte black...maybe I'll paint one louver in each and see how they look with the rest of the case.

    It's easy really. I designed it all in sketchup then added all the measurements and printed out the drawings and handed them to Tom @ HydroCutter and said make me this

    Ok well it was a little more involved and time consuming than that lol, but it did go together quicker tonight than I thought it was going to, so I'm pumped

    yes, in fact you can. Provided you have a Tempest or Tempest EVO case (from what I've seen the top panel is pretty much the same between them). Tom saved all the needed AutoCad files to cut them again, and I've got enough styrene to cut out at least 5 or 6 more full sets. If anyone's interested in a set for their case (Tempest/EVO) let me know, I can make the magic happen

    All you'd need is the arduino (sensor shield not needed, just makes all the connections easier), a micro servo, and the code for it is here! (once again a HUGE thanks to crenn for helping me with the coding!!)

    I want to see this in action! I'm also curious the radius of the arm (from pivot to connector) for each panel and the radius of the servo.... just curious!

    Also you're welcome for the code, didn't take too long to write up and hopefully will work exactly how you want it to!

    Not sure exactly what you want for measurements. I think this is what you were asking for. It's all the dimensions for the actuator arms. I can't seem to find out how to make sketchup show angles like the rest of the measurements though, but the angle is 30. The smaller pieces are the same but without the extra arm coming off. Hope this helps



    :EDIT: upon further research it would appear that SketchUp does NOT DO ANGLE MEASUREMENTS like it does the other length measurements. Seems to be a rather important thing they left out. However you can jsut use th eprotractor to find the angle and make some text pointing to it with the angle I suppose

    oh and it's 1/2" center to center on the holes

    What's the radius of the servo arm?

    EDIT: If you've got MSN/WML can you PM me your address that you use?

    that I don't know off the top of my head, but I'll be home for lunch in ~ 3.5hrs so I'll find out then. I may not even use that servo arm. I may cut a piece of styrene to attatch to that arm for more throw if needed. I don't see that servo having any trouble moving these louvers, it's got plenty of power and they more very easily.

    This is the servo I got, but I got different arms with it

    I don't use MSN/WML, sorry
