    Hey guys, i have been a little busy as of late, but now in the summer i have had a chance to relax and start planning a project to entertain me throught the winter.

    The main influence of this mod was from a CAD router at my school that can only usefully cut out a 12cm x 12cm square. So i thought that there must be a way that i can incoporate the use of a machine into a case mod. So that is waht i started with in sketchup, a 12cm x 12cm plate of plastic.
    After playing around for a while and looking for abit of influence on the web i came up with this design,

    i know it is a slight rip of that other computer that is X-shaped but i really liked the design of it.

    The case is made out of nearly all 12cm x 12cm panels with only the grills being alluminum and the internals which will be welded together out of Iron bar.

    I wanna know your thoughts on the cases design and what problems i might forsee if i make the case, at the moment it is purely designed as a "because i can" project for my uni Portfolio...

    thanks for any comments made..
