The Spinning Xbox Jewel (v0.1)

This tutorial can be made to your imagination, but I want to inspire you to make some sort of your own.

Tutorial Skill: Experienced modder.

How to make a spinning Jewel ?

Go out to buy one of those cheap hdd fans , or get one laying around. The fan is held in it’s surrounding plastic with 3 legs.
Cut/saw them loose, and snap of all the blades of the fan , or if you already have a hole under your jewel you might wanna keep them on for cooling reasons, but you may have to fine tune a little to avoid the blades of touching your case.

Once I was trying to make a clear jewel, but my oven cleaner wasn’t strong enough and only cleared out the letters ‘xbox’ L well in this case it give a nice effect, as the jewel is spinning realy fast it gives a nice total see trough for the lights under it. (Like when a loser turns really fast you will see a circle). Now you will have to hot glue your jewel on top of the fan… Important is that you center your jewel decently.. you can do this measuring your fan head and marking the lines where you have to place the fan head with your measurement tools.

You may have to drill a little hole into your xbox to feed the wires trough. If your planning only to make this little hole, just cut the wires of the plug on the hdd fan and solder/fix them back later, or solder loose the wires on the fan (remove the stickers).

Be creative, there are probably allot of better methods to attach the whole thing, but I’m just here to inspire you. I’m not very precise nore am I left handed.. But hey, it looks nice.

This is my jewel spinning with 2 little blue led lights underneath. As I told you before, since the letters inside the jewel are clear it will create a see trough illusion.. well you can see trough but only when the jewel is turned on.

Your jewel may be a few mm un-centered because when it spins that fast you will not notice..

If you want to see the final result, I have made a little movie.

I hope this little tutorial / showcase will inspire you to make even more wicked cases.

Btw, specs of my box:
V1.3 , hdd led mod, power button led mod, jewel mod, memcard reset mod, and the chrome 360 skin.

Thank you for taking the time to look at this tutorial and if you have some original ideas yourself, don’t make a tutorial for the scene please.
