That looks really good.  Are those 2mm sheets?

The smoked grey is 2.25mm and the green is 2.75mm.

Awesome pics!
Great job Moz, really cool design.

Please, I wanna cut this drawing but I'm wondering at here if we do really need all these 5 layers for the bottom part - I would love to get it as thinner as possible ...

Do you have more pictures of the green acrylic? I am very interested in it and would like to see it if possible!

Sure, just took this for you:

Hum, thx for the pics! Still hard to tell what it would look with green as top and bottom layer.

And smoke for middle layer or white? Decisions!

At least there's still time to get decided!

Very much, acrylic can be drilled very easily, just got to know how.

Use the bits used for wood, apply moderate pressure, not too fast and not too slow.

He should tape both sides too and drill through the tape, no?

Kdash mentioned in the gh60 thread that this case isn't (yet) poker compatible? Is this correct and are changes planned?

Yes, MOZ.
I download the 60per.dwg file (http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=44382.msg1034343#msg1034343) and made one on my own. it fits GH60 PCB very well.
and Poker II PCB with plate can't fits well, because of the poker II plate's size is much bigger than the PCB's.
I think it fits all the PCB without plate, like poker I and pure.

How amazing would this case be for the Cherry Replica Set (http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=50292.0)!!!
With "white, orange, orange, orange, white" layers.

so Sprit's acrylic case group buy has started.

http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=50579.0

Can you describe the pros/cons of this case in comparison? Any reason I shouldn't just buy that one now? I suppose it might be easier to customize your case for my previously mentioned modding purposes but I don't see why I couldn't use either one.

On yours, I could create more space by adding layers, but on sprit's, i could probably stack washers or something between the layers at the screw holes.

I'm not going to get into comparisons, that case does look higher quality and thus you do pay more, it looks great.

I don't know about it's design so I can't comment on whether it is customizable or not.

Oh this is a really old thread.
I hope it is alright that i bring it back up the list.

MOZ, from reading the thread, it did not seem that you have updated the cad to be fully compatible with poker 2. Is it still in the works ?
