BLM 16x16+X PCB and case order [CLOSED/waitlist]


Recommended Posts

This is a bulk order thread for the BLM I've designed. Please post here with the quantities you desire. I will leave the order open until Sunday July 26. Note that I will give preference to those ordering both the PCB and case as the main goal is to have a complete system at the most affordable price for all.

The original concept is here:



Here is a rundown of the costs in USD:

PCBs:
Main BLM PCB: 75
miniCore PCB: 4

Mouser components (available soon as shopping carts):
BLM: 247.97
miniCore: 9.49 (excluding PIC, available from SmashTV)

The main cost of the Mouser cart is LEDs. If groups wanted to order over 1000 pieces then savings of around $45 are possible. Also the red LEDs are somewhat cheaper.


Buttons:
18 pieces of 4x4: 108, depending on where you order from.
single shift button: 1

These are available from adafruit and various other sellers like flikto.de. There are discounts available, but one has to order over 99 pieces...



3 mm acrylic spacer from Formulor/Ponoko:
~55 depending on where you order from.

Case, including shipping to you worldwide:
285 (>4 pieces)
250 (>9 pieces)

I will have to add a few extra studs to increase stability, so it's possible that these might be a few dollars more.

Hardware:
M2 grub screw, washer and nut in stainless steel: 1
20xM3 washer and nut ~3
4xwhite square LEDs to fit Bourns sliders: 1

Shipping is ridiculous from here. I will post when next travelling to the EU

Estimated cost:
CH: 12 or pickup
DE: 12
EU: 25
International: 28

Payment can be made by bank transfer or PayPal (with fees paid or 4% added for the latter)

I'm happy with the PCB, so I will hopefully ship by the end of the week. Now's the time to tell me if your address has changed in the past while. I would just like to check one more component before r

Please see post above: if you don't fit into a multiple like 10, 15, 20 PCBs etc, then you can go onto a waiting list for the next batch. Let's see how many are requested. Looks like a big trip to the

Finally a stable design for jam sessions so that I can put the prototype into the MIDIbox museum - thanks for the great work!!!  :thumbsup:

Thanks Thorsten for the firmware updates to get it working and the brilliant platform to begin with! Looking forward to those other modes, whatever they turn out to be.

Och, I should say that I can either take payments via SEPA transfer (I think that's free) or PayPal. But in the latter case I would have to add 4% fees...

Just to clarify availability: I'm assuming a new run of 10 PCBs with minor trace fixes, but I might build just one more to be 100% certain... Let me think about this. And I only have 9 pieces of the M2 hardware left, which can be found in hardware stores or easily on eBay from Bolt Base. It's just for convenience's sake, and I won't need them for other projects. I think the white LEDs for the sliders work well with the Blue/Green/Cyan colour scheme, but if you like you can get other colours like red, green, orange (TTSH) etc. as standard directly from Mouser.

It's no problem to do a larger PCB run if the demand is there.

i'd like to have the whole pack if you can take more than 10 pcb

 

 

Thanks Thorsten for the firmware updates to get it working and the brilliant platform to begin with! Looking forward to those other modes, whatever they turn out to be.

Och, I should say that I can either take payments via SEPA transfer (I think that's free) or PayPal. But in the latter case I would have to add 4% fees...

Just to clarify availability: I'm assuming a new run of 10 PCBs with minor trace fixes, but I might build just one more to be 100% certain... Let me think about this. And I only have 9 pieces of the M2 hardware left, which can be found in hardware stores or easily on eBay from Bolt Base. It's just for convenience's sake, and I won't need them for other projects.

It's no problem to do a larger PCB run if the demand is there.

The new fixed pcb will be on this bulk or a new one?

Likewise, no problem for more PCBs or cases. The PCB you will get will be a new revision.

FYI, you can keep the table tidy by using the code "< >" formatting.

 

The shift button and M2 hardware are now maxed out. If you're still interested just put a question mark on these and if it goes over 10 I'll consider ordering more.
