There are many expensive highly-customizable PC cases on the market these days, but for some people even the fanciest chassis is not enough. For customers looking for something completely exclusive, InWin introduced its Signature Yǒng: a PC case that users can design themselves and have it 3D printed and processed by Inwin.

Designed after butterfly pupation processes and various organic forms, InWin’s Yǒng is a full-tower E-ATX open-air chassis compatible with a variety of motherboards, graphics cards and cooling systems. The case still has a metallic carcass for installing PC components as well as a metallic stand. That carcass has USB and audio connectors, everything you expect from a normal desktop.

To get a Yǒng, users will have to go to InWin’s website, choose their concept, customize it however they want and then the company will produce it and ship it to them. Production process includes 13 steps: InWin 3D prints the form, then it polishes it, paints it, glazes it, paints again, polishes again (not necessarily in the exact order though). In fact, the process looks similar to that used to paint premium cars, only InWin’s workers do loads of things manually.

Each Yǒng has its own unique number and since users can customize it above and beyond, each Yǒng chassis is exclusive. That uniqueness will come at a price. Each Yǒng from InWin will cost around $4,000. Meanwhile, the Signature Yǒng will not be InWin’s most expensive chassis as it will still sit below last year’s Z-Tower Silver that comes at a price of $5,500.

    are you kidding???? in the land of $5/day labor, that'd mean it was made from raw materials from the get go. many of hundreds of hours of labor in one of these things?? it is, by the report, 3D printed, which is 0 labor. again, where's the hundreds of hours of labor? just more conspicuous consumption on steroids.

    3D printed. Hand prep and air brushed. Mounting hardware for traditional PC hardware. Facilities and people to do all this. Maybe its contracted out. Who knows. Also they need to support it after construction and make some money. High end gear comes with high end margins. Reply

    For $4000 I'd want more of a seamless design, those joints look ugly going all the way around. If they put so much hand craft into it, make the majority in one piece and only the part that holds the hardware removable and only seen from the back. Reply

    Most printers can't print stuff that big at once hence the multi piece construction. I guess they could have done a better job hiding the seams. Reply
