Recommended Posts

1st of all even this isn't a case mod but as its related to mod that's why posting it here.

Thanks to Asus for making such a wonderful monitor which can be modded easily....don't know that was this monitor ever modded before...just tried to reach my modding dream with it...
 
This is my 2nd Monitor mod but the previous one wasn't that much as it was only a vinyl mod..........It started after I have seen the Asus ROG Swift monitors RED Circle ring in the bottom part of the base plate

And after that I was really much influenced with the Mayan pattern of the Asus ROG which they started doing in ROG products....searched a lot of places for the same pattern that asus uses but just founded this pic to take it as a reference...
 
Tried to sharpen the pic and gather as much as details to apply it in my mod

Actually I prepared the ROG EYE along tym ago keeping it in my mind that I will mod my monitor in the future...
this I cutting was really hard as it was 5mm plexi and the dimension of the eye was approx 3 inch and i didn't had any laser cutter at my place....

After That cut out the ROG eye in basic shape and it was satisfactory....

Here is the finishing touch it ended up much nicer then I thought

started the mod with a paper where I draw the Mayan pattern and as the pattern in that banner wasn't enough for my mod...that's why i did used my imagination keeping the Mayan pattern in mind to draw it....
 
but 1st i need to draw the base plates outline as my basic guide for modding...

Then I have drawn some of the mayan pattern in the paper to see how it looks like
DSC_1759_zpscfbfa7d0.jpg
 
thought about some basic line of the Mayan pattern but it didn't helped

So I just chose one side of the drawing of the paper and copied to the other side with carbon paper...and it was satisfactory after I have implemented in the base of my mod....

The plan was to keep the ROG EYE in the middle of the base...so that it looks nice...

Now its time to do the pattern the MAYAN pattern by engraving it in the base

Half Part engraving is done...

The engraving part was done done slightly to see how the pattern looks...

Full circular engraving was done but it wasn't the final finish for the engraving though

The base plate will stay in the stand like that....just was seeing that how does it appears

And the final thoughts was to add some LED magic..... ;)

Now going little deep for the engraving part to make the pattern look bright..

 Here's the Difference of the deeper and the 1st engraving....

This will be the implementation....

Now its the time to engrave deeper for the ROG eye to stay inside the base...

 
DSC_2539_zps9c245d74.jpg
 
I did the ROG eye engraving in a way so that the ROG eye that I made before place in there without using of any glue

Colored the ROG logo white so the RED becomes vibrant over it..

And here it looks like after the coloring of the logo and the placement in the base

 For the Light piping the grove of ROG eye transferred the white light to the ROG red eye....dats why its looking little vibrant in here

After checking the effect I went to create the portion where I can attache the LED strip so cut a rubber strip and attached glue in it to attach the LED strip in it
DSC_2567_zps5318575f.jpg
 

 
Then attached a on off switch to control the light to not get distracted while gaming or movie watching or when doing intensive works if it seems distracting then....

That's a major upgrade, Very cool looking. I can see you don't shy away from intricate designs on the etching. 

Thanks a lot mate....really glad u liked it....Actually it was the most hardest part to make the engraving all by my hand without any automated tool......;)

I have a ROG Swift... first thing I did was turned off the red ring... don't know why anyone would want light around the monitor. Now I see this! 

 

Cool, great work but I couldn't imagine working/playing with that turned on... so dont see the point

Yeah ur logic is right mate....But sometime while browsing this light can be helped as Ambient light which will make less effect in your eye while ur turning of all other lights and just the monitor is on....and also I have given a on off switch so that i can turn it off if I feel that its distracting me from gaming or movie sessions....;)...........Thanks a lot for liking it mate.....:)
