    As mentioned before guys im working on a video of the case designs to drum up interest for stage 3.

    If you feel like having some fun you may make a short video of your case for me to use in the video as i have some space in the 4 min time line.

    if you would like to do this PM me and do not post videos in this thread.

    :sigh: that's true ... :wallbash: ... that was a good exercise with curved lines in SU.

    What do you think of the plain version of the case (w/o window) ?

    You know, the plain thing opens a new world of possibilities, but not everyone can or want to cut his own window.

    I prefer this window. I love big windows.

    I understand and it reminds me of an idea I was considering. The front bay panel could be composed of 2 layer, the inner one being acrylic and the outter one being a full aluminium cover. Thus you can either leave it plain or remove the outter layer to have a full size window. Even further, you can cut the alumium shell to use it as a mask above the acrylic window, having a window that match your tastes.

    I think I'elle go that way

    @GuilleAcoustic- I say no window (sorry Razor). I just think, if someone wants a window they can easily mod it, plus I think it looks a lot cleaner without it.


    Anyone with some photoshop skillz willing to help me out with a watermark? :D

    (Im a photoshop dummy :wallbash:)

    I don't know about that! Everyone's designs have all progressed to a point where I think it will be very close. No one is really standing out (at least to me) as a clear leader. I like em all! :clap:

    Edit: Everyone is bringing something different to the table too, there really aren't any two cases that are similar in design. Everyone has their own unique and creative idea.
