Wow, nice work Ken. Wish I had the skills to make my own case. You're the same guy who had that massive loop in a small Lian Li, aren't you?

Folks, spend a couple of years in a good high school robotics team (or apply to mentor one near you!) and you will be able to put that together :)

Ken, one question, is half that laser/water cut or were there any 'manual' incisions?

EDIT1: Rude of me, almost forgot: effing nice work :) Very clean and minimalist, +1.

All lazer cut.

of course the hardpart was designing and fitting it all into a small package. also making the bends was challenging.

Thanks Ken
