    hello everyone. its time for me to start a new project. like the title says it will be case with industrial design. the base of the case is made from 2mm thick alu. unlike others i don`t make frame separately, and the cover it with alu sheets. in my case its all in one. first of all gluing together 2mm thick alu angle with alu sheet. to hide rivets i drill the alu sheet half way through, then whittle away the rest of rivet. in order to add stiffness i put some triangles in corners. then made blow holes in front of case and cut out the back panel.

    I like the way you file the rivets down are you gonna fill it in with something? Looks great

    Great workmanship - the chassis looks great, and the holes look nice and neat. Looking forward to seeing more!
