get a plan you mean???

well it would be alot better if you do it yourself..........you may want to use the motherboard trey and PCI slots from an old case though. But it is much more satisfying when you go into somehting on your own and come out w/ something original...........but I am sure if you would spend some time looking at other modding sites you could find something.

im sort of looking for ways to do joints, i doubt you would be able to do much because it would split and perspex costs a fair bit so i want to be able to do it first time without too many complications, im also not very good at designing but its something that i would enjoy doing for my design and technology major design project for my year 12 HSC

You could do your joints a few ways. One of them is to use some aluminum or other metal bent at a 90 degree angle. Another way is to get acrylic rods from a place like www.usplastics.com and cut a groove out of it or something. You could also just join the plexi itself, but if there are any inperfections they will stick out liek a sore thumb.

You can get these corner things that they use for cabinets, its like a cube cut in half diagonally.

Hard to describe but they are there, usually in "Homemart" or whatever.
