Re: Crystal Clear GBZ KITE AIO

Incredibly impressed with the build, love your Instagram stuff :) I tried a clear case once, I actually took it apart because it looked so bad, but wow your's looks amazing!

It's definitely castable. It would just take a crap-load of RTV to do it, so it's really not practical.
It wouldn't take to much to be honest if done right.

One day I will attempt it

Very nice! Maybe you could make a mold from a ready-to-use DMG shell (extra button holes, big screen etc...). I also like the endless colouring and material possibilities
I have been thinking that but it's a far to complex piece to do atm... I will try one day tho

Re: Custom resin casting parts

I was watching some videos on this the other day! It's a pretty kool process though. I guess once you have learned all the tricks for getting the bubbles out and such, it's an easy job It is very much a learning curve. The molds I was making a first when I look back now are shockingly bad. But with...
