It wouldn't be from scratch if you started with an existing case, no matter how much you changed it.

So am I a bad person or is my female Shepard just easy?

Does anyone have the measurements of the motherboard mounts for all the different sizes?

Answer my own question: found a ATX standard layout for the motherboard, I will post it HERE for everyone to use.

Now after dinner I will go hunting the other sizes biggrin.gif

if you want to find a form factor i didn't post just search for the form factor you are looking for along with one of the following "mounting hole diagram" or "mounting hole drill diagram" without the quotes of course. . .

i also found this article http://annettekraft.ifunnyblog.com/atxmountingholes/#

Nice links guys. I'll add them to the OP thumb.gif

EDIT: I added a painting guide I used when I was painting the aluminum and acrylic for my case. If you guys have any other links or guide that have helped you, post them add I'll add them to the OP to build up a nice list of helpful resources.

Hello everyone, I'm new to the boards looking around for some info for a future build and this thread drew me in big time. Seeing all of your amazing work has really got me wanting to try my hand at building my own case. What I have in mind is an acrylic design, but I have very little experience working with it. I'm hoping that someone here has had some luck working with it and could give me some pointers or "If I only knew" advice before I jump in head first. Or possibly point me in the right direction to where I can find some good info on working with acrylic. I wish I was a little more artistic so I could draw up a picture of what I have in mind, I think it will be a pretty unique design. smile.gif

I used a lot of acrylic in my build as well. It's fairly easy to work with. Just a few pointers though. When drilling holes, make sure you put something solid behind it, like a piece of wood, to give it more support so it doesn't crack. If you're using a jig saw to cut, use a high tooth per inch blade and take your time. Going too fast could also cause cracking or breaking. Obviously, the thicker the acrylic, the stronger it will be and less likely to break or crack. And always put down some masking tape or painters tape on the areas you are going to cut to prevent scratches. I learned that one the hard way. Some of the other members of this club have some pretty good build logs I'd suggest taking a look at to get some ideas as well.
