    FAQ: Dimensions for Designing Your Own Custom Case

    I think there should be some sort of sticky in the FAQ or maybe Fabrication forum with links to a bunch of PDF's or something that detail all the specifications and mounting holes of things such as:

    3.5" Hard Drive
    2.5" Hard Drive
    itx/uATX/ATX Motherboards
    M1/M2/Opus/DSATX PSU's
    Case fans maybe

    Just all sorts of stuff regarding building your own custom case. I found that I spent the longest time googling for 3-view drawing with detailed information about where the screw holes were located, maximum length/width/height, and that sort of thing.

    Might be useful to others.

    That's very nice of you 2k1Toaster; why don't you start the FAQ thread yourself, though?

    How about some 3d cad files. That would help me out when using PRO/E. So far ive had to manually build these 3D parts.

    Well I wanted some input first, and also If everybody contributes what they have, then we can put together a comprehensive FAQ all at once.

    That would be cool too. Go ahead and upload them. I will use all of the info posted here in the final FAQ.

    Post away!

    As fas PDF's go. It would be kewl to create a PDF file with everything you needed to know as far as measurements. Like a full on Document. Although living Threads are kewl for added knowledge. Too bad that doesn't always happen.

    edit: I will have to see what 3D Cad files i have or can create for people. Does anyone have preference on 3D file type?

    That would be a huge PDF!

    If you can do it, go for it. But first we must gather all this info into 1 spot. Then we can optimize it.
