I am so, so glad I was able to pick up 3D modeling during my first year of ID. Since I'm still new to the process of making 3D models it was both a challenge and a learning process, but I did learn a lot!
We went with Shapesways to get these cases prototyped and 3D-printed. The first batch went very well and only needed minor adjustments to the inner dimensions. It's such an awesome feeling to look at something that you made digitally and then finally be able to hold a physical model of it in your hands! Not to mention that it's even more thrilling when it all works out and isn't a flop.
