    Thanks a_ump, as this board is 2007, I wanted to give a more sober and so gets under a color (copper) and more appealing.:toast:

    If ever there was a 56k warning, it's the first page. I don't think I've ever had a page take that long to load.

    Custom cases are always interesting.

    Thanks for the compliment a_ump. The edges are not so sharp, I haven't cut myself once and I've been back in the box for some time.:toast:

    This is being built in aluminium, so it will be lighter than the previous one, I guess.

    Hey man nice work, I was wondering if you could help out in starting out building a case.

    see I have a case design in my mind I would like to make it a reality but I have no experience in the CAD stuff or metal works ( I would try to learn though )

    how would you advise me to start? are there companies who offer prototyping services?

    Thanks!

    First of all welcome to TPU forum Noplace, :toast:
    Regarding your project I don't think it is very important to worry with the cad, but put your idea on paper and see how it looks and start from there. There are many modders who don't use metal opting for other materials, such as wood, fiberglass, resin, mdf, etc. I don't know companies that make custom prototypes, but they must exist, is a matter of research. I hope to help with my poor skills but you don't lose anything in ask for a second opinion.:cool:

    Good afternoon,
    Before attacking the aluminium, I decided at last minute to make a model in cardboard :D :D.
    For today thats it, I hope to finish the piece of card early to switch to metal after.

    Hi there,
    The model is ready, it wasn't perfect but the important part was set, and being a transitional phase is key not to lose too much time :D.
    The following photos, enjoy
