    Yeah, I had to draw an atx/matx hole pattern template and a hole template for a psu myself recently. I also found a nice plugin for illustrator that converts it to cad software and exports to .dxf. (gah, lost the link though.)

    Drawing a nice tool free design for hdd as we speak. If anyone knows the outside dimensions of a 3.5" hdd I will probably send it to you in like an hour. Then I'll start working on some more parts I need to make.
    Good work jez.

    3DS?

    I'm thinking that the site has to support various file formats - which will those be?

    No 3d autocad files. Id say the best files would be a 2d net in dxf or dwg, a 3d drawing in dxf or dwg and a dimensioned pdf for people without autocad.
    Also I have an educational version but that shouldnt be a problem should it?
    Sorry for not doing it last night but i tried and i was really tired and it just turnd out terrible.

    .c4d, .max/3ds, .obj, .dxf and .skp would be the major fileformats. Covering Cinema 4D, 3D Studio Max, various AutoCAD-programs and Sketchup.

    How easy is it to convert between the different formats?
    I'm hoping to be able to have multiple file-types per model.

    Should it be possible to filter a search by file type?

    I can post the DXF flat pattern of my MiniMac design if anyone is interested? I need to do a little work to it first but if anyone is interested I would be happy to share?

    I think a section for cases wether standard or not would be a great help for modders. Even if only a couple of case mods and standard cases are available people with not as much drawing skills as some could simply cut and paste what they need.
    I would be intereste din some of your designs roboduck. i think they are great.
    Also do you use autocad for rendering?
