Hello! My name Rick from, CA, USA. This my very first computer case I have ever done, and very excited to start working on it. Will be a good challenge.I did this design on art class in paper back in my High School days (2002), and never thought I will end up building it. Started sketching this design in 3d using Google SKetch today, and added new features I didnt include in my original sketch. I want this case to be different from other cases, meaning i dont want the perfect square shape like others, and to look more like a future case. Case will made of Aluminum, Acrylic plastic, and white glossy paint. Will add more info later today, im doing this at work, I better stop, before my boss walks Im just waiting for materials to arrive, expecting them by monday.

innovative ? i've seen that x-shaped design before, and i'm sure the OP has seen it too. the subconscious must have brought it up

Original thought is like original sin. Both happened a long time ago to people you could never have met.
