for the cutting (if its thin enough) you can cut the shape you want with a well pressed utility knife (like a box knife but sharper) and then break it

the mounting part i guess ull just have to make holes and get some mounting kits

like the guy said use a utility knife to make an out line of were u want it 2 break. then snap it in half and it will break cleanly were u made the cut. probably would want 2 use a strait edge(ruler) to make ur guide cut.

also since we're on on the subject, what do u use to hold the plexi together if you were making a box? i dont want to use hot glue cuz it'll look ugly and also not any hindges either.

umm i was goin to make a plexi case fer my xbox then i chickened out. you can use a plexi knife to cut plexi (home depot) and they have this special glue that melt the plexi that bonds the plexi together ya dont use hot glue lol

ok, heres a question while were on clear cases
i just ordered a clear pc case for my xbox from clearpc.ca, and i have no fucking idea how im gonna cut it
id get a plexi knife, but its not plexiglass and its not acrylic either, check this shit out

the case im getting is made out of 98% Lucite. now for those of you who dont know, Lucite is what they use for bullet proof windows.
so how in the fuck em i supposed to cut out holes for the mobo connections (A/V and LAN) without fucking up the case blink.gif blink.gif unsure.gif unsure.gif

i think you should be fine, its 2 different concepts

bullets use force to break through something
dremels well use extremely fast spinning discs that are meant to cut
