Seriously thought about building one of these but ashamed to say I chickened out because of the self assembly nature of the case.

My new PC is only the second time I've put one together, and the thought of actually having to put together the case itself was a step too far, I could foresee nothing but problems and stress TBH, especially with my clumsy fingers.

Lovely looking things though and I wish them every success in the future.

I'm really keen to see what the retail version of the mini-ITX Parvum case is like. I'm particularly interested in the customisation options that Parvum offer, especially after reading the likes of Parge's "They said I was dead" build log - that custom panel looks utterly gorgeous.

I trust Bit will be reviewing the mITX case as soon as it's available? :D

Indeed! A sample is inbound or so I'm told!

I went over and said hello to Imersa last year when he was at the I-series.

These machines really don't get given justice in photos. Walking past those desks was like going through a damn of people as they all rubber necked to see the setups inside them.

I too would love to build my next system inside one.

I really think that they should introduce aluminium and wooden (or bamboo) panels to the mix. That would be awesome.

Our background was actually CNC cutting 3D wood work. The most material we've ever cut on a CNC was huge oak panels we recreated to then be finished by hand for a Georgian house.

There's nothing stopping us trying to get something done for a Parvum in wood. It's just on the list to do :D

We've also been working closely with steel for a personal project so introducing metal for perhaps the accents could be a really nice touch.

I'll echo Nexxo's sentiments - I'd love to see wooden panels, and metal accents too.

Having recently taken delivery of a Parvum custom ITX case, I can only praise the business that Justin & Shaun have created.
I have the build part done and still fiddling to get started with it.
I WILL post on BT, but life's been a bit hectic to get stuck into modding lately.
Keep up the good work guys, that matte acrylic is amazing and the lack of static is brilliant.

It would be great if the do a NAS version with pre-installed 4 external +1 internal HDD bays and 80-120 mm Fan mount in a similar volume as a HP Micro Server, they would have an other winning product.

Get on our and other Keyboard forums, there is quite the market for wooden Keybaord cases.
Here is an other one: deskthority.net and There is another big one but I can not remember the name at this time.

Seriously, there was a small firm in Germany that fell through last year due to high demand. I think the 60% size has the greatest market at this time. Best to ask here and over there though as I am not one of the gurus ;)

It's more how busy we are with other things such as the cases. With such demand there and so far to go with the business we cannot go into keyboards at the moment.

I have an account at DT and GH and spent a lot of time there a couple of years back.

Glad to hear things are going well. If we could organize a CAD file, would that make a difference? I mean you did say you still do custom runs. Or can you no longer source the supplies?
