Hi everyone,

I'm building a new PC case and it's designed with significant reliance on 3D printing with Shapeways.

I've posted a project log here.

AFAIK, it's the first time anyone has done this. Comments welcomed!

I've been working on the CAD design for about 2 months and only just finalise them recently. Smile

What prompted the idea? Well, I'm always into building a new PC case and designing. Using 3D printing instead of traditional manufacturing, the design can evolve easily modified. Thanks!!

This is hot. Surprised An adventurous design. The black printed parts look so good. This unlike any acrylic case I have ever see - it looks light.

Thanks! I'm glad people liked my design. Smile

This is just my prototype. I'm planning to re-design based on what I've learn and I'll definitely post back here again.
