Ahoy everyone,
I've finally migrated over here from the other forum as Dan had suggested everyone had moved over here.

I was just wondering if anyone has made a window for the v4.1. I'd like to do it myself, but I would like to see a photo of one and get everyone's impressions about difficulty of acquiring the window, etc.

Cheers!

On that same note, does anyone recommend a good vendor in the US/Canada that cuts tempered glass from provided .dxf files? Kind of like sendcutsend, but for glass.

Hi there - just seen this. I am in the process of building a Dan A4.1 with a custom window. Put simply it wasn’t easy nor cheap - but I had to teach myself how to use the CAD software and I also had an interior designer tidy it all as it is rather fiddly. I then found a reputable laser cutter and got the design laser cut onto acrylic. I can’t show photos of the final design as I am currently waiting for a 3080 in order to build the rig and as such it is not built yet.

If acrylic is expensive then I imagine that tempered glass is even more expensive.

You brought up another point that I was going to mention. I have zero experience with Fusion 360, but I'd really like to add a vent of some kind. Do you recommend any tutorials on how to do so?

I'd be grateful if you could post photos of the window when you have a chance.

Cheers.

I found this buried in the A4 thread. I would love to add the vents from variant C. Does anyone have a modified .DWG with this configuration?

Just as an interesting side fact, I thought I mention that for some reason, a lot of shops here in the city where I live (Budapest) have that 120mm aio bracket to sell. I just can't help but wonder how this particular component flooded the market here, for a pretty rare, kickstarted case. Which is okay, but compared to that I just find it interesting how accessible is the bracket. I can literally walk into one of these shops and buy the bracket like a chocolate bar, while the case itself can only be purchased from 2 online vendors throughout the whole continent of Europe. Dan Cases probably know about this, did they get a lot of inquiries about the bracket, they probably also wondered why every shop just goes for the bracket and not the case?

Not to mention that the case is not even that popular as it should be, itx is a niche and Dan A4 is a niche within a niche and if that's not deep enough then just think about how many Dan A4 owners actually utilizing the aio bracket? One can barely even found any proof of builds with that on the internet. Yet every shop has this in their inventory over here, that's hundreds of aio brackets. WTF? Is it the same in other countries? Does Dan Case receives more orders from shops for the bracket (that literally no build has) than the case itself?

I think the Caseking Group has shops in your region. If this is the fact many other local shops are connected with the Caseking warehouse system and have access to inventory.
