The trick is that is not always purple, it bends the light. Sometimes it's gold, sometimes it has a mirror finish.

But, yes - there will be 'shrooms, Buddhas and such on there. For a moment I was tempted to go with Flaschbier and Werner so I guess it's open for now. Maybe I'll stick with Nyan. Or Cthulu.

Have a good one!

@ jojjelito: This ist how my housing looks. At the moment I'm not having the sequencer right next to me so I can not measure the thickness of the frontpanel PCB. (aprox. 1mm)

These dimensions fit.

/Edit TK: this diagram is obsolete, see next page (6) for updated picture with new spacer sizes (5mm + 2x18mm)

Link to original diagram (again: obsolete)

Hi mastomo,

just download the attached file, choose wich frontpanel you like (the one with engravings or the clear one) and place it + the backpanel on the Formulor/Ponoko-Template (download from Formulor.de/Ponoko.com) and you will have the same ....

And if you are familiar with Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw, there are no limits to your creativity.

Cool! Thanks! I need to slap a case with sides together. Otherwise, chances are that my cats will put their paws in there and do something nasty to the electronics. Otherwise it's a cool idea to do it your way :thumbsup:

Cheers,

J

@cd_reloaded,

i just download your template,

nomw i need to understand how it works with formulor.de

but i will, be sure :-)

i'll tell you when everythings OK (... or NOT ...)

your pictures are really great ! i love this !

@smashTV,

it sound like some good news !! cooooool

@ all: You need a vector based graphics program to work with the files I provided. This is not a ready-to-order-file. It is a cool basis to do what you want to do.

So, as mentioned before you need Adobe Illustrator, Corel-Draw or a similar programm. If anybody knows a really good working freeware tool to handle SVG-Files, please be so kind and let us know.

PS: I just found out that there is a suitable freeware program to handle these files. It is calles "Inkscape" and you can use it on a Windows-PC or on a Mac. Here is the link to Inkscape: http://inkscape.org/

I'm always in a lack of time so I'm not able to provide a file for a closed case wich is ready to use at the moment. As soon as I have a few minutes left I will do that.

What I have here is the original SVG File wich I took as the basis to built my acrylpanels. Maybe this is helpful for any one of you. This SVG file was exported from KiKad, wich is the layout software I used to make the board.

This SVG file is in 1:1 scale and the measures are 100% exact. You can download this file here:

@jojjelito:

Are you going for solid case sides or Sammich style?

Cheers,

Was thinking about hex cutouts (Shruthi case style), but haven't made up my mind. Somewhere on that forum there's a case thread which has a bewildering array of cool case design variants. Maybe the Sammich is also using hex cutouts, I don't have one so I haven't looked that closely. I need to fire up Inkscape and draw some shrooms so I'll see what flows out. I won't draw a case this week though :hmm: There's the tiny bit of the panel wiring and finishing the modular first.

Cheers,

Johan

While I'm waiting for my PCB's to show up in the mail I've constructed the MBHP_CORE_LPC17 module and I noticed various jumpers available. Which ones are needed for this project? and J26 on the PCB from SmashTV doesn't show up in the docs page. Thanks for a great looking project.

Scroll on down a bit on the LPC page:

"Since the LPCXPRESSO module doesn't provide dedicated pins for the two Ethernet Socket LEDs, you have to solder them directly from the appr. on-board SMD LEDs to J26 of the core module with two wires"

Best regards

Thanks Tim, missed that bit. Any other jumpers I need be concerned about, I think I need J17 for USB power, any more?

Tim,

must i solder this 2 leds ? on j26? or can i leave them away ?

what are P1 and P2 for ? do we have to do something with it ? calibrate something ?

Your PCB came yesterday and i soldered it now in 2 hrs :-) nice work thanks for it.

You don't need to solder these LEDs if you don't want to use the ethernet option.

what are P1 and P2 for ? do we have to do something with it ? calibrate something ?

these are the contrast/backlight pots for LCD displays.

You don't have LCDs connected (not supported by MBSEQ V4L anyhow), therefore you can ignore them.

Best Regards, Thorsten.

Btw.: I will use a different set of spacers ("Distanzhülsen"):

7 x DA 5MM (at the top)

14 x DA 18 MM (two spacers sticked together, makes only 36 MM instead of 40 MM)

no spacers for the core module

Best Regards, Thorsten.

i was wondering: will there be an "official" seq3L case ?

because at uCApps it says: "Case: Not finished yet, but will be available before the PCBs are ordered."

i was confused because i saw different people working on cases in this thread.

Well, there is the open case as designed by our esteemed cd_reloaded. I just thought I would add sides to this case as I have cats around me which aren't good to exposed electronics. I intend to add some strange figures to engrave and make the case in a non-standard plexi since any variant is order-it-yourself. I'm taking a short break due to crummy, personal circumstances.

I will return to this subject, but not this week.

i also had the idea to do some wood-side-cheeks.

a friend said he will make me a complete case . so i just need a frontpanel.

I hope that the pcb´s have the same printing than cd´s pcb´s so i we cab do a selfmade frontpanel ( Acryl)

They should be the same AFAIK, but you'll soon get something in your hands if you want to check it first.

Wooden end-cheeks would be nice!

pcb printing is the same.

...so plain acrylic front will be no problem.

shruthi-1/sammich style cases would be great. maybe also tilted front (like preenfm)

maybe i could contribute for that.

i know inkscape quite well, but never did something for laser cutting.
