Custom Mouse

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hello, i have made many kinzuadders but want to take custom mice to the next level. I am thinking of possibly making a custom ( or semi custom) shell for a mouse. I intend to use deathadder and kinzu or intellimouse internals. Now i have no idea where to begin with this sort of thing and am seeking ideas about materials etc. and if it would be possible to do some sort of mold.

You'd need the proper machines, or let's say you'll need a company which will make the shells for you. Of course this only pays off if you're building a significant amount of units. So to say you'd need your own company if you want to build something nice.

IMO it's not the best place to ask this.

Did you try to google it?

I googled a bit, but my google skills are lackluster. I did not see anybody manufacturing mic on a small scale, only thing similar is people buying oem mice and replacing internals.
