    I'm glad to see this compo getting some recognition, Nice one Bill...

    I really love the ideas with the 'heat-sinks' or fins, something that hasn't really been done!

    I've downloaded the file, but for some reason Sketchup is extremely slow and it won't do anything when I try to change stuff.

    I prefer the older release.

    Rignt on Mankz!

    I've been watching these guys and imagining a 1.5" thick clear acrylic cnc milled "heat-sink" style cover on a case I'm working on right now.

    nice one Cheapskate, but just a couple of 120mm fans inside it. I want to make something similar to confusis' side panel idea. I ordered a 1-1/4" thick 12" x 24" sheet of clear acrylic last night from mcmaster.com for around $80
    The case will be a giveaway prize!, worklog link

    Cool, show us how you do it. It would be perfect for the mod I'm planning.

    I love that stuff. I just thank God I didn't have to pay for mine.:hehe:
    Just one thing...Glue an extra 1/4" sheet to the back of it in your favorite color.:D Trust me. The extra layer will make it look crazy if you polish it.
    -Besides, 1 1/4" isn't nearly heavy enough.:hehe:

    @ skullen, nice work, I'd love to see that one built and illuminated in person.

    @Bill - COOL!:naughty: Just don't try cutting it 'till it cures 24 hours.
    @Skullen - I like. The tapers on the side panel accents are a nice touch.

    All done I think :)
    Special thanks to all those who donate their models to Jazzle's Sketchup collection!
    I may have another design in the works so this isn't necessarily my entry. :p

    Nice one confusis :thumb:

    The side panels are rather awesome. Apart from the tubing, I'd say it'd look pretty cool with two handles on the top, like the stands on the bottom... and maybe something more interesting around the PSOne screen...

    Happy SketchUping :thumb:

    I love the details in the motherboard and PCI cards, did you do those yourself?

    EDIT:: I see you used a texture for the circuitry, what about the ports?

    Nice one Confusis. It looks very 'kickable'. :D (or maybe 'toe-breakable.')
