THE ROG EYE Asus Monitor Mod VX229H

1st of all even this isn't a case mod but as its a ROG 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

But before starting here is the Full transformation Glimpse for all of you....


45523

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...

45524

Tried to sharpen the pic and gather as much as details to apply it in my mod

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
45528

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....

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....
45538

45539

The complete EYE....not finished the work yet
45540

45541

45542

Here is the finishing touch it ended up much nicer then I thought
45543

45544

45545

45546

45547
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
45550

45551

Half Part engraving is done...

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

45563

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

45564

45565

The base plate will stay in the stand like that....just was seeing that how does it appears
45566

45567

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

45568

45569

45570

Now going little deep for the engraving part to make the pattern look bright..
45571

45572

Here's the Difference of the deeper and the 1st engraving....
45574

This will be the implementation....
45579

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

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
45589

Colored the ROG logo white so the RED becomes vibrant over it..
45590

And here it looks like after the coloring of the logo and the placement in the base
45591

45592

45595

45596

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
45597

45598

45599

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
45600

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....;)

Some rubber feet raiser for the acrylic not getting scratched
45604

Attached some double sided tape to stick it in the outside of the baseplate

After the base plate was done....I modded the stand and the monitor with some acrylics and vinyls...

45621

45622

45623
