Thread Starter 
Anyone suggestion on which would be the best case to replicate in your opinion?

I was thinking similar to this design.

Please take note:
All of these uber high quality cube cases are all made out of aluminum, and only enthusiasts who can afford the cream of the crop use them. You are better off making a mid tower or full tower case to "fight" with the likes of Lian Li, silverstone and corsair. Besides, case labs is the best MM style case out there, apart from the Lian Li one which is discontinued.

If you could sell them for ~$200 I'd buy one. But that's me.

Accurately gaging interest is nearly impossible. Personally I'd aim for a competitive price point and bite the bullet. You will most likely not make a profit on the first run. Subsequent sales and word of mouth is where the profit lies.

Thanks! I had OCN artisan Pedgette etch the window for me. I used two green cold cathodes to light the etching and I made my own custom color cold cathodes to light the interior of the case.

Sorry but I think this needs a dose of reality:
*Are you ready to lose money?
*Are you ready to give up time?
*Do you have samples of the cases you want to imitate?
*Are you 100% sure your "connections" are reliable and do a good job at manufacturing the product(s)?
*Are you willing to implement features that us enthusiasts @OCN (and other forums) want?
*Do you listen to the community?
*How are you going to "spice thing up" with your products? (AFAIK your proposed cases are MM and Case Labs clones but in steel)
*Are you aware that you are going to have to sign up for the Artisan program if you want to sell/advertise here?
*What is your budget for this project? (You may well go over $5,000 USD in design/planning)

Yeah, I was in his shoes before, but then I realized that I simply do not have the funds & time to do the project. Just Sayin'

EDIT: Not to mention maybe design/patent infringements filed by MM or Case Labs?
