Reserved.

500USD for something with as complicated design as that seems...implausible.

This feels like a project by someone that enjoys drawing CAD and that is all there is to it.

wheres the proto
because spending your hard-earned money on a one-off proto before gauging interest is now obligatory

But why does it use plate mount stabilizers?
What?

I mean you are more than welcome to support projects from unknown designers with 0 proof of concept.  Maybe you would be interested in a bridge I have for sale?

this is a neat design, that's for sure

I completely doubt the ability to paint, ano, etc. in that much detail for the tech geometry design

If you can create a proto sheet of that design, just like a small panel that has the cut and painted design. prove something like this is even possible for a not "sell your kidney" price point

there's no way this isnt going to require something like a 5 axis and a lot of QC on the finish to get this right

if you can prove you can even get this design past the render stage then this IC might look a lot more promising. but considering I'm only looking at renders of a case, no layout options, and an exploded view that makes it hard to see what kind of mounting system you're even planning on using. this is one big red flag right now.
