Finn by Slin Design How It All Began: Finn started as a project in my Junior year of high school where I experimented with laser cutters and got into the PC building scene. After building my first pc I wanted to do more. I wanted to build my own case from scratch after seeing projects like the Dan case and the S4 from NFC ect. become so popular. But unlike those I wanted to be flexible and be able to use the largest coolers and gpus as well as cheaper and more powerful power supplies. I set out to work on building my first case by creating some initial small designs. This is what i initially came up with. Now this was only a prototype ⅛ of the size but before I could get to the full sized thing I needed to create some test benches. After a few of those, I designed my case around it… After cutting it out I saw that the structure was not stable and there was no easy way to fix the design with the tools I had. So, I started from scratch again. This time with many valuable lessons learned. After giving it a thought, I created a new design which Finn is based on. Looks good on the outside, but the inside was another story… So I posted the case on PCPartPicker.com and was surprised with the amount of support and encouragement I got from the community. Spurred on with the success of the first version of Finn I set out to design V2. The first prototype of Finn was much stronger and had a simpler construction than the curved design but I wasn’t finished yet. The earliest prototype of Finn did not have any drive cages or support for radiators. So I fixed some of the shortcomings of the first iteration and came up with what Finn is now. Final Design: (I won't be using this wood again) The outside looks very similar but the inside is totally redesigned. In the first version there was no drive support but now Finn supports one 3.5in drive and two 2.5in drives as well as having some space in the front for cable management. Goal: Very soon I will start my funding campaign on Kickstarter. Any tips or help with starting a successful campaign would be much appreciated. Extra: I have marked this thread as prototyping but in reality it is very close to the funding stage. Feel free to make comments and suggestions. Who is Slin?: I assume that no one knows who I am (since I've never made a post) and that's why I'm introducing myself. I'm Nils Nietsch 18-year-old Dutch designer living in California looking to make an impression. I'm Dyslexic but that definitely hasn't stopped me . Cheers!
