Anyone for Custom made cases? or hit "print" lately?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I was going to post under the Corsair 750d thread but think it deserves it's own.

George was defending the new models criticism and summarized by saying

I have a very basic strategy for becoming the #1 case vendor in the world.

1. Ask you guys what you want.
2. Build it.
3. Launch it.

Repeat as necessary.

So my thought was ...

 

when is the

 

1. Log onto the manufacturers cases site

2. click on "custom design" tab

3. enter own specs,: layout, sizes, color, pre-installed  components, custom laser cutouts lighting etc

4. press finish

5. enter credit card details

6. wait for delivery

 

coming ?

 

They do it with bikes, racing road bikes, motor cycles, cars, houses, shoes, wet suits etc , it doesn't cost that much more and its perfect ,  OK there is usually no hope of resale but its the future of many industries

and then there's  the world of 3D printers , maybe just buy the printer instead.

  Has anyone printed their own case? (damn that's another new topic to start)

If you want complete control over the finished product and basically just want someone else to manufacture it for you, why no just go to a commercial laser cutter like the rest of us do?

Short answer for why no one has made a business model like the one you propose, is that there is little to no money to make there. Those of us who have both the will and the disposable income to have parts custom made, have no trouble finding someone to make it. And most of the people that might voice support for your idea, does not fall into the above category. They tend to lose interest when they realize that these things cost money.

As for 3D printing a case.
I highly doubt that anyone has done that for anything larger than a RasPi. 3D printing is still in it's infancy and making something like a full PC case would simply be to time consuming and expensive to be a viable option for large parts.

Laser cutting is currently the best commercial option for making custom parts.
