    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. :)

    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!!

    Cool! Thanks!

    This is hot. :eek: 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. :)

    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.
