Xbox 360 Material?

My dad has a laser engraving machine and I was thinking it would be cool to cut a design into a 360 (same as the 360 case mod, but it looks like I need a dremel to do that, and cutting it with the laser would be easier), but my dad said that if it's made out of PVC I shouldn't do it because of the gas that it will produce when it's cut.

So does anyone know what it's made out of?

inb4 "lol gas that it will produce"

I'll be the first to say it: Retarded idea.

Also first: It's neophrene, perfectly capable of being cut and engraved.

Cool, thanks. Why is it retarded though? It's just the same as a regular case mod but if I use a dremel I'll probably mess it up lol. I'm not making some crazy design. It would just be a simple design.

I was more preparing you for the many suggesting it's a retarded idea, not a reflection of my personal thoughts at all.

Ohhh okay. Thanks I don't actually own a 360 yet, but I'm trying to find a good deal on a used one.

Here are a few of the designs that I like:

uh oh guys... someone's insecure that an "outdated ****ty piece of hardware" is more liked, supported, and popular than their console/pc

OP, are you buying an xbox just to do this???

How much time are you looking to spend doing this? Because its not just a simple cut and go process. It's going to take you several hours to get this done and don't expect it to look perfect on your first try.

My advice to you is to buy some spare 360 cases to experiment on off of ebay.

Nope. I was already getting an Xbox and I just thought it'd be cool to do it. I've wanted a 360 for a long time (ever since it came out haha) but they're a LOT cheaper now and most of the games I want are the older ones that are really cheap now. (L4D, Skate, COD4, MW2, etc.)

I can fix RROd if it happens, and it's already out of warranty, so I really don't care about that. Lol

I'll spend however much time I have to haha. I'm not expecting it to be perfect. I always get an image in my head of the way I want something to look, and most of the time it doesn't end up looking anything like it. Haha.

I was thinking I might also buy a RROD Xbox to fix and practice with. My friend has one but he said he might try to fix it himself. I dunno.

Again, it probably won't even have one, and if that does happen, I can either try to fix it or just buy another console because they're pretty cheap now.

So you get on here and ask just to get support for your opinions and ignore others who don't agree? Seems pointless to even make the thread in the first place if that's what you're saying.

No, I mean in this thread I'm asking what material an Xbox is made out of. People just posted in here saying Xbox is dumb and that it's going to break. That's completely irrelevant to what I'm asking. However, I got what I was looking for and I'm grateful for that. The thread wasn't a complete waste haha.

Gotcha. Sorry, I read all the posts and lost track of what you were originally asking. So, I retract my earlier post and would like to lower my douche baggery.

Good luck and post up results when you're done. Pretty please.

Just be careful. I don't think you'll be able to use a laser to cut the case anyways. I've had 360 cases melt/catch fire just using a dremel if I'm working too fast.

Well I will make a thread when I'm done I asked a mod to close this because I got my answer. And don't worry about it haha. I'm not getting upset or anything.

Well I saw a video a bit ago of someone lasering one to have a Halo theme. I will be careful though.
