Hello everyone. In this tutorial I'm going to show you how to make a computer case .This are an easy to follow tutorial. I'll explain everything as well as I can. I used 3D max 7 but I think it can be done using even 3D max 4 or 5.

I always start by searching the web for reference pictures and I suggest that you do the same. The case we are going to make is a concept one from a few pictures I found. Of course you can make your own design.

Ok let's starts:

First make a simple box and convert it to editable poly.

Now we are going to separate the front part of the case from the body. Just cut an edge where the front part should start.

Now chamfer this edge

Cut another edge between those 2 we just created and extrude it in.

Now we are going to soften the front edges of the case. Select those front edges and chamfer them then click apply and chamfer it again but this time with a lower value.

Now selects the front polygon and inset it.
