Great idea,
we can start from some simple details with no bendings, such as solid fan cover

Btw is it legal?

I've started trying to reverse engineer/design a 120.3 Side radiator mount for the S8/S8S if anyone be willing to check dimensions for me:

CAD Conversion of caselab models.

Hi guys, I might be able to help you out on this if someone is willing to do an actual build of my reverse engineered motherboard tray, this is my acid test that everything I have done is correct and takes into account the metal working technology which is at the disposal in my country New Zealand, the down under.

I've been at it a bit longer and know what I can and can't achieve in New Zealand due to the limits of our manufacturing capabilities and have worked those changes into my designs which are made of 1.6mm thick Aluminum taking into account the necessary bend radii, neutral factors, relief widths and depths required for the material and tooling, thus my design should be easily toolable in a country with more manufacturing capability.

Let me know if you are interested in me converting these to proper C.A.D documents and what you would like me to do first... Note this will take some time as I am quite used to CAD but google sketch up is not a simple tool to me so I have a bit of a learning curve ahead.

I have designed my own case from one of the case labs designs, it features.
Dual motherboards up to SSI CEB.
Space for two rack mount 1U devices.
Two power supply slots, one per board.
Removable motherboard trays on both sides.
Up to 13 5.25 inch external bays ( or 12 3.5 inch bays using sas4sbsa 4 to 3 hard drive bay converters ) per side.
Front panel USB 2/3, audio, ring lit LED power and reset switches.
Side opening removable windowed door panels.
Room for tonnes of water cooling stuff and fans.
A panel space for hiding all of the cabling for a clean build.

Oh here is a pick I copied into mspaint from my cad package.

Can you supply me with dimensions, they would need to be accurate and I can supply you with a cad drawing.
