I think I might have Laser Cutter access through the Lab that I work in. It has a cutting area of 18"x24" and they cut plexiglass on a very regular basis. It's limited to 1/4" wood, but I don't know what the plexiglass is limited to. I know we can also etch things into the plexiglass and wood (2D only, I'm incapable of 3D etching). I was thinking about coming up with a design that was 24"x18"x8" simple rectangular box, but some holes out for 120/140mm fans all over the place. I was going to leave a space on the bottom for a bottom-mount PSU as well as fans and ducting. Mobo tray to accept ATX and mATX (I'm looking for XL-ATX and EATX specs to try to include the mounting holes for those) and label all of the holes.

I want a fairly german/engineering/raw look to it, so I think I'm going to use hex-head screws all around and simply tap into the plexiglass. I'll have to use pretty thin screws, so they'll mostly be for piece of mind and looks. I'll probably end up using the IPS stuff and gluing a lot of it together.

Any thoughts on how to achieve the 3.5" and 5.25" slots and etc? How are most of these things assembled, any ideas? I've just never seen a plexiglass case and am really intrigued as to the small specific details.
