What does IA/01 stand for?

She's IA. (Read: i - a not ai - ei )

Haha, that's what I thought before, that's why I chose an abstract art for my UE11's to make a balance

but soon realized that I'm already dead to society (IRL) .... since my grade-schooler years, so I don't care.

Ahh I get that, but I still have some ..aliveness so I'm keeping it for one more year :)

UPDATE 24/08/2012 - Pt.1:

Behold! One of the main characters of this project!

The Custom Acrylic Shell.

 

 

If you're wondering why I didn't make my own shell, I tried...

Look at the end product in part 1 of this project....

This is the reason why I started part 2.

I know you wanted to do vocaloid and that the IA fit with it, but I would have chose inr-in (from Guilty Crown) as the cuter pink haired beatufy

Awesome!

It's starting to become more and more real now.

I always wondered how the drivers are fixated in place.
Do you have to fill the casing with something to keep everything in place? I imagine that could hinder the performance of the drivers.

The drivers are glued to the shell with resin adhesives

In my case, I'll be using an epoxy base one because it's the only thing I have.

It would be a good idea to use an acrylic base because that's the shell material.

 

Yes, pouring will damage the drivers because there are air-vents on these BAs

Not to mention you can never get them out again.... Ever. (like my part 1 product, that's how I broke the drivers.)

Can't you just buy acrylic based resin?
It would be useful for future projects in any case.
