Bitfenix Prodigy Handles and Feet  

post #1 of 51
Thread Starter 
OK let the fun begin! Bitfenix has made a fantastic ITX case known as the Prodigy. But why the God Awful handles/feet? The more you add to the system, the more the legs droop and bend. The case becomes wobbly and unstable; even with minimal parts. Who wants that?? I sure as hell do not.

So I have taken on the task in modifying said handles and feet. I wanted to mold something different than what comes with the case. Something more stable--something durable and as strong as ABS plastic.. So then I remember I used to make molds and cast miniature Lego helmets; but the last time I did that was 3 years ago.

I am willing to make a mold of the original handles and feet, but in order to do so, someone needs to send me one set. Preferably the handles. It will take more to do but it can be done. Pictured below is a mock up design of the handles and feet. This is not in any ways permanent but its a start!



The top would represent the handles. This will give someone an opportunity to grab it from the sides instead of the front and back. The Bitfenix wording will be embossed into the design and have a 3D feel. It will incorporate the same attachment style as the original handles so no need to do anything different to attach them!

The feet I actually like. The markings on the feet will be that of like the handles, embossed with the 3D feel. Each side will be its own piece. So instead of one big piece, it will be 2 smaller pieces sitting at the same elevation if not higher.

Other thoughts I was thinking are these. I was thinking of enclosing the top utilizing the same design as the original to install and hide fans or rads. Same with the bottom. Ideas are endless!!! Any ideas on the new designs I have will be appreciated and any other thoughts or suggestions or anyone who is willing to work with me on these handles and feet would be even more appreciated!!!

I am working with Audioholic on making modded parts for the Prodigy; i.e. his acrylic motherboard tray, front edge moldings, and maybe another part or 2. BTW---these handles and feet will be offered in transparent and opaque offering different colors!!!! Let the fun begin!!!

EDIT:When stating what you want, please let me know the color and style (opaque or trans)!!

Including:
1- Your location
2- Your willingness to cover shipping costs
3- Time they will be gone

Will be helpful to the cause. Also, you may want to post a wanted ad in the Case FS section in the Marketplace.

Oh and fyi since you're "offering them" in different colours, I'm assuming you're selling them. This is prohibited by the OCN TOS unless you have artisan status. Oh and remember, you're not allowed to profit thumb.gif

PS. The TOS is stupid but I can't do anything about it. Just warning you for the possible reasons you'll get in troubel

I am pretty sure he will get the 35 reps needed to be able to sell by the time he finishes this mod. It's not hard to ask ocn mods just to make sure. smile.gif

Only way I could post is if I have a rep of 35 or more. Only thing I would charge is for material. I am not looking to make a profit at all; just willing to help others! I guess I will have to talk to Mods about this thumb.gif Thanks!

I hope so too and it will give me the chance to solidify the work to get it done and stable thumb.gif
1: I am shipping from Massachusetts and willing to ship all of N.A. (including Hawaii, Alaska and P.R.)
2: Yes I will cover shipping thumb.gif
3: I will offer for one month taking orders and fulfill as I can. If demand warrants it, it can be extended!
