I was at the neighborhood money-pit (Home Depot) pricing 2 8 foot sheets of Cabinet Plywood for a simple project using my Existing Hardware

After Downloading the plans imputing them into a Modeling program to scale, i decided to scale in some of my own models from a study i did about a year ago. Well I noticed I needed to finish my Series of 3D Models for my pre-visualization.


Anyways here is the progression



anyways i had to modify the original plans because my 6'5" frame is not fitting into a 17.5" wide seat.... might go with the 5/8's ply instead also

The Nice thing about this unit is... want to take it to a LAN ... slide it apart and it fits in your trunk

5.1 probably.... center channel under the LCD's on the shelf, sub under the seat area and front and rear satellites speakers fitted to the unit with pvc or using audio studio positional brackets

I have my Server Box with a Dual-Core going to be the Base

Next I need to model my TrackIR4 and Logitech Keyboard next

Ok Widened the Seat, creating 3dmodels stuff I do not have.

I have made 2 mods to the Akers-Barnes Template based on hardware I plan to purchase that were pre-vised to spec.

Hope you don't mind the misplaced object in this configuration



Another Style -



[edit]

Revised again adjusted the center display to reflect a 12.1 touchscreen
- adjusted base height to accommodate my 38" inseam and clearance from the Keyboard/Wheel tray



I think since everything is to Scale and I have worked out the incompatibilities of not being a midgets like the rest of you DBB folk. I will rewrite the template with the new deminensions and go buy some 4x8 5/8 Sandply. Hopefully the changes will still only require 2 Sheets.

well I had to add a Mannequin with my body dimensions because something was still not right.
Made adjustments to the entire seat and modified the back support




I want to be able to sit in a Cadillac seat and not cramped into a Yugo seat
