Im planning to make my own custom xboxcase. This is wat I had in mind thus far.

Its made from duplex. I will spray the inside of the box white, so you get that shinny effect from the duplex. The duplex is rounded on top of the box. Like the letter r

Im open for any suggestions.

That looks very nice though I think the LCD should be a bit lower so it has it's own space.

Hmm, not bad. I think the LCD should've been in the middle, and the rom to the side. Just my opinion wink.gif

Here is my suggestion for a revision of your project:

The more I see it, I realize there could be more problems (like how close the DVD is to the LCD and that it would suck to try to use the screen what it was open) but this is just one concept.

dude, im pretty sure the seconed lcd spot is wrong, im assuming he just wants the small lcd to monitor fan speeds or things like that. I think it would be crazy to pull off. The other thing, is if you plan on putting the lcd in the original spot, how would you do it, the reason i am asking is because you said you would have the top rounded.

I wish I had the creativity skills to pull something like this off. However, I also lack teh motivation. sad.gif

Keep us up to date with how it's going.

I really like the second design. I will think about that one. It's true i only want a small lcd, but i can also set that to the middle. I'll have to see if it fits with the cdtray above it, but it should be a lot easier since it's a small lcd. rolleyes.gif
What danlk2 said was true, i had to place the lcd a little lower if i go with the first design, sorry about that tongue.gif

my personal opinion...nice but change it up a little, everyone has the lcd to the left or right so thats kool, but have the lcd above the dvd (so the dvdrom is at the bottom of the case) and have the contoller ports vertical (one ontop of the other, two either side) as everyone always has the horizontal...just a though.
