MNPCTech Sketchup Case Design Competition 3

Past winners:




Rules, as per SCDC#2:

The Task

So you want to know how to enter and lay your claim to the (pending) great prizes and eternal fame the way Dark~3nergy and scooby did with their winning entries?
Simple!

Design a 3D model of a PC case, from scratch. The basic theme is a folding rig! (With mobility thrown in for flavour)

That's it! Use all your creativity, find all those ideas that have been lurking in your head for years, close doors and windows, and unleash your crazy side!
We greatly recommend using Googles free program Sketchup, as it is easy to learn, easy to use, and gets you good results fast. It's also recommended to use the sketchup component collection to get great and accurate models of all kinds of hardware. However, if you decide to be stubborn, feel free to use any 3D program you like.

The Rules
As this edition is all about letting your creativity run wild, we have decided to impose even less restrictions on entries then last time. Sadly, there still are some:

* Start your design from scratch. You are allowed to import a limited amount of models to fill your case with hardware, but the feature of your entry should be the case that you designed from scratch!
* For round one: No rendering! To keep the playing field even, we will not allow fantastic renders to enter, or even to be posted in this thread. Your entry should be screenshots of the actual 3D model ONLY.
* Final entries are to be announced in this thread. They should contain one main picture and up to 4 images from other angles to show off various features. Supplying the 3D model for download is also allowed.
* The deadline for your round 1 entry announcement will be December 1st, 12:00 PM (noon) GMT
* Voting method will be decided at a later date.
* Only one entry per person allowed
* To generate as much publicity for the competition as possible, we may use the 5 images of your entry to make a video presentation to be posted on YouTube.
* In case of a tie, both contestants will receive the same prize.
* Prizes will be shipped globally, so the competition is open to all!
* Feel free to post images of your progressing designs in this thread for discussion, but please keep it relatively clean. I hope the mention of "common sense" will cover the usual array of boring rules, so here goes: common sense, use it!
* Have fun! We will be checking very strongly on this point, as rumours have come to our attention that one of the previous winners in fact faked having fun in order to qualify. Consider yourself warned!


Disclaimer:
*Terms and Conditions: Items may vary from those shown in the images. Items will only be sent if the winner is willing to accept them. Postal insurance is available for a small additional charge. This promotion is not associated with www.bit-tech.net, or its affiliates, and they cannot be held liable for any damages as a result of this competition, and neither can confusis, or MNPCTech.
Disclaimer2:
I (confusis) will enter and moderate at the same time. My task will be purely to keep the thread nice and organise things slightly. If you see a conflict of interest, feel free to PM me.

Folding rigs seem to be in at the moment, so maybe that would be a good one.

Freeform again!!!
I have been thinking about doing another DDC top with the new toy. It would give me an excuse to clean the gunk out of 'toad.

Hmm. I might be able to sponsor a basic prize but nothing pricey. I'm thinking a 2 stage contest.

1 or 2 months where everybody has a go, then we have a vote, and the top 5 have another month to complete their designs. I'm thinking as my sponsored prize, the top 5 have their final design printed into a poster form, possibly a2/a1 in size, glossy and then mailed to them :P

As it is a folding rig, internal components will be recommended. No rendering until after the top 5 vote has been decided. the top 5 can render their designs for the final.

I might be willing to supply photochop assistance for the poster. The winners would need to supply a large resolution render for that to work. (A1/A2 in at least 300 DPI.)
A poster would look good with the other rigs in a strip along the bottom.

@Bent - That reminds me, we could do a freeform with mobility as a suggested theme. I have something I can submit for that.

How about a small competition for each? Only the 1st place in each catagory gets a prize, and 2nd as well as 3rd get a render/poster of their design.

Possible catagories:

Free Form
ATX Tower
Small Form Factor
Folding
