    it seems very odd to put a copy case in a magazine, seems like he's proud of stealing ideas to an extent! i say, put the original in same magazine! show it up :p

    and take the flattery of the copy!

    As a matter of fact Hypercube² has been in the same magazine more then a year ago ;-) (But as a 4 page article and not as a readers mod)

    I tried looking for the CustomPC scans, but I was not successful. I did manage to find this.

    Hypercube 3?

    What is CustomPC doing, providing plans and instructions for custom PC designs?

    While I am one that also considers imitation a sincere form of flattery, a "knock off" copy that does not properly credit the original designer is at least in very poor form.

    did the copier at least ask permission to make the case? these worklogs make it a bit easier to rebuild these cases since all the steps are layed out which isn't bad unless they do what this guy did, in my opinion.

    At least they could try to write my name correctly ;) its Gert SWOLFS, not wolf, wolfs or swolf :sigh:

    and as far as I know i never was in contact with Robert Leat, nor did he ask permission. But i dont think he should have. Its not like its copyrighted or patented. And dont forget he DID credit me for the design.I only think its a bit sad that he didnt learn anything out of my design.
    He didnt get the point of it all. Its not only the outside that counts, but especially the inside, which he seems to have forgotten.

    Anyway I still consider it as a compliment, but i would be even happyer if people would take some of my ideas and make them there own by improving and changing them

    Just to clarify, when I saw the box built by Robert Leat, I thought he was putting together a copy of a copy of Hypercube. I failed to recognize that Jougne was Gert Swolfs.
