I spend the last one or two months carefully designing the case and i'm finally confident enough about it to make it a reality. I ordered the PVC and Polycarbonate plates from an online webshop and they arived within 2 days. As you can see i ordered 5 of everything for when i screw something up (it's gonna happen).

In my previous post i mentioned i'd be making the case out of polyethylene plastic, however polyethylene turns out to be really hard to glue so i used PVC instead.

Here's a peek at the designs and the materials, i'll share more details later :
