hi all

I recently started 3d modeling hoping to make myself a portable with my own design.
I want to go for a new 3ds xl style for the case, this is what i came up so far

I doubt the final design will be anything like this (that is if i finish this project).
I'm still very new to 3d modeling so please go easy on me :D

That looks really nice for early CAD work! Clamshell designs can be rough to work with, so I've heard. Probably has something to do with getting good hinges. I recommend you scout for some existing hinges that you can build into your case and then model your design around that.
