    Margaret, oh Margaret. Potentially the build that caused the most stress ever, taking over a month to complete due to every step having loads of strange complications. But in the end.. oh she's a beauty.

    Sorry for the resolution.... it was fully processed up to 4K before we went live. Once it goes live, 360p. We've reached out to YouTube to try to figure out what the heck is going on. So frustrating...

      ***Pro Tip*** Double sided tape sucks. use painters tape. put it on both pieces you want to glue. on one side put super glue, on the other put bleach, stick together , hold 10 secs. Boom works way better than anything you can buy...*** also*** bleach is an accelerator for super glue*** you can buy accelerator in a spray can but bleach is cheaper.

        that monitor mod looks horrible and just tacked on, look at the edges of the screen.
        at least try to crop the screen or fake the rounded edges somehow, now lots of pixels just dissapear behind the plastic

                cut some relief into your corners that meet on the bend. it will make bending the tabs much easier. also... you could have got away with less thick plate. just a thought.

                        The problem with the CNC was trying to cut all the piece at once. You should cut it layer by layer. 0,2mm Z Axis decrease.
