2016 Thermaltake CaseMOD Invitational Season 2 - HUFFER Build


2016 Thermaltake CaseMOD Invitational Season 2 - HUFFER Build




Hello,
I am Rakesh Sharma from INDIA. Representing my country at 2016 Thermaltake CaseMod Invitational Season 2 with a unique casemod reflecting my passion towards Jet-Engines. Being from an engineering family background I always had a great attraction towards machines and engines, but unfortunately ended up as a Software Engineer in real life.

And Jet-Engines are such a beautiful artwork of engineering with great sound and power, which makes me little more passionate about. Now through this CaseMod I will try to showcase (likewise) one essential equipment used for starting a Jet engine.
The MA-1A Air-start cart or the 'HUFFER' cart.

For this CaseMod, I will be modifying the Thermaltake Core X5 ATX Chassis.

ABOUT BUILD IDEA

MA-1A Air-start cart, some people called it the “Huffer”, is a start cart used to start Jet engines. This cart generates high velocity air, this air is then fed into the aircraft jet engine, causing it to spin or spool up with sufficient RPM for starting. The cart's air delivery system is powered by a small turbine engine. This thing has started many well known aircrafts like Lockheed F-104, Boeing B-52 and YB-49, a flying wing design bomber aircraft commissioned for service with the U.S. Air Force shortly after World War II.

https://www.youtube.com/embed/4seex64vGlE
* Thanks to AgentJayZ for sharing this video. And if you love the sound of starting of a turbine engine as I do, forward the video time to 5:42 Enjoy..

Due to its rugged design, MA-1A start cart is still used to start modern Fighter-planes and commercial airliner’s engines at many countries around the World.

My Case mod is focused on this “Huffer” design, with the Thermaltake Core X5 case showcasing as the main engine unit.

Full Sunday working… from printer scrap parts to fully working top-air flap transition done successfully., just slight fine-tuning required.

UPDATE : 07-Dec-2016

Front analog control panel part done. Everything working fine. RPM meter is displaying fan RPM. Under 5000 RPM meter displays accurate fan RPM, but above that it starts showing higher values of RPM.. some fine tuning in Arduino code will solve the issue.
