    I've got to give hats off again to Asgardianhammer . It's people like you that remind me how lazy I am! How I go home after work and just play video games. You're a super active Division Identity Officer, active Regiment Commander, community organizer, scout leader, dad, employed, and you still have time to play video games! I hope you approve of the direction I took with your recruitment booth idea.


    We've had the discussion here and on our regiment facebook group about what we want to see in a recruitment booth here in the Pacific. Now it's time to build it!

    Drafting

    To start off, I'd like to show you a transition of concept sketches.

    With the idea in mind now we needed exact measurements to create a cut list.
    \
    *disclaimer* Until we start cutting, the drawings in this post will change
    First I had to draw with real 3d effects! By drawing the actual thickness of wood I can see where joints need to be mitered, where dowels or screws or dados need to go, which board sits on which and how does it change the dimensions. I broke down each section and even started the beginning of a supply list on each page.

    front.jpg Leftside.jpg rightside.jpg (to scale)

    Since the bottom box is the cart that holds all the pieces (except the weapons rack which will hang on the outside). I had to write up all the thicknesses of the pieces used to make sure it fits in the box. Plenty of room to spare!

    All in all this took me around 21 hours to doodle.


    Cut List
    *disclaimer* Until we start cutting, the drawings in this post will change
    From these dimensions I used MS Paint to lay out a cut list (only the 3/4" material for now).
    mblackwell1002 is also doing a CAD drawing so we can cut these pieces on CNC.

    PerniciousDuke just pointing out that the mouse for that computer will be on a slanted surface, it would be advisable to use a track pad trackball or find a way to keep it from falling

    Agreed Lieutenant Jaku . It will be in a mortised pocket so it won't fall.

    I'll toss some cash your way later on today. The CAD/USD exchange rate is pretty terrible right now so it won't go as far but if you have a specific component you want covered, let me know and I can send it over.

    mblackwell1002 and I got to cut out the 3/4" panel pieces on a 5' x 10' CNC today.

    Not bad for a couple hours work.

    You're not even close to my Regiment Jaku! I appreciate the offer, but maybe hold out until colonial gets underway with theirs. I know Kusak3 is getting things in order to make a booth.

    I've updated the first post with a drawing of the infinity table frame and the underside of the box for wheel placement.

    I've also updated the materials list a lot.. :unsure:

    Biggest hold up I can see is all of the stickers/stencils
    If there is any chance you have any leads for me Asgardianhammer on how I can get things made up on the cheap I would be grateful.

    PerniciousDuke I cut all my stencils in vinyl in reverse on cheap vinyl. Base coat it all, make sure everything is good and dry then pop those puppies down and paint it. Remove the stencils while the paint is wet. You don't want that vinyl staying on too long. Then any other stickers, I made and stuck them down. I can dig up my files and send them to you if you have someone that can scale them for you and cut them to the size you need.

    I would love that! But do you have time though? First showing is Sept 7th.

    The stickers would also be big. Like 5" tall by 28" long. Any leads what I could buy to work with your equipment?


    Thank you Asgardianhammer those propaganda posters would be great to get.

    Aliya is working on the flag. Kevin's got the stencils and light up AI. I think we can make your machine work. I was envisioning the whole top panel being a sticker, but second thought I don't think that will look good. I'm now leaning towards only the letters and logos being stickers. I can probably handle getting them printed and see if I can pass them off to you to cut. In that case they would probably be like 4" x 4" sizes.

    I found a pretty cool fan made UNSC computer screen image. Spent about 2 hours in GIMP recreating it so that it can be printed 24" x 26" for the booth.

    *I've messaged the creator seeing if it okay to use my recreated one.

    Afterwards when trying to find the image again, I stumbled across this...
    It was taken from the computer monitors on the UNSC Infinity
    H4-Concept-Infinity-Monitors.jpg

    Which one would go better with our theme. I'm also considering changing the text to say "ENLIST TODAY" instead of build your character.

    I like the first one better, myself. Three second one gives an air of generic busy work. In a good way, but still busy work.

    Also the blue one is ship's system diagnostics which doesn't really make sense for a recruitment terminal .

    Still waiting for mblackwell1002 to get me some painting scheme mock ups, but deadline is approaching fast so I've got to trek on!

    I'm finally happy with the side profile. Kevin Hurd is going to vinyl stencil the UNSC eagle logo. DirtDives is going to help out getting the regiment logos done up. The green weapon rack is tentative. Once I got the colors on there I liked the idea of it popping more from a side profile view. Any suggestions on weapon rack colors I'm all ears. The weapon rack will have a black/yellow caution sign on the bottom.
