WE FINALLY DID IT!! - Water Cooling the 8K Camera!

Recommended Posts

It's finally happening. We are water cooling our RED 8K camera, and it is a beautiful thing.

It's rather impressive how good these guys have gotten at machining their own cooling-equipment. I mean, there's some very definite improvement when you go back and look at their older attempts at making e.g. their first CPU-waterblock.

@AlexTheGreatish this is my kind of video, awesome job!

 

With the unevenness side to side caused by the slip in the vice, do/did you have a set of parallel support plates? If not, those and a vice stop for keeping zero locked with part flips is hugely helpful.

 

Also, suggestion if the threads get torn out on future projects, since you expressed some concern with it-- helicoil/threadserts are the best. When I worked in aerospace land we would spec down to 2-56 (maybe 0-80, has been a hot minute) with helicoils, especially for blind holes in aluminum. Bonus is you can always embiggen and retap for the helicoil if the original hole gets garbled.

 

Awesome vid and thanks for showing the shop and machining process. Super cool, makes me wish I could spend afternoons in the shop again.

 

Unrelated to the video but I wonder what the likelihood is of Solidworks/HSM offering a non-commercial-use trial or student/hobbyist license for the LTT community. I can't always use work licenses for personal projects and the free Solidworks alternatives suuuuuuuuck. Could always pirate, I guess, but I'd rather buy a legit copy that isn't all the dollars.

It was on parallels but the bottom wasn't perfectly flat and the part rocked slightly when it was center punched.

I think they are going to be doing something like that with XDesign (basically Solidworks but in the cloud) soon.

Interesting video.  I was shocked at how abruptly it ended. The title made it seem like we'd see the whole thing.

Trying to use a non-cnc machine to tap a few holes like that is like running 100m with a stack of china just to save some time. Awesome video though.
