Panel Angle Question

5 posts in this topic

Hi Guys,

I have my MBSeq board almost done and I have the core done and loaded, so it is time to think about a case!

I am either going to get a front panel laser cut, or I am going to CNC my own out of Baltic birch plywood like I did for the MBSid I am also assembling.

My question goes out to those of you who have used your MBSeq's for a while.

Would you prefer a sloped (angled) panel face, or a flat face? It seems like the majority built are rectangular boxes, but I am leaning toward some sort of enclosure with a sloped front.

What are your thoughts?

Thanks,

Justin

Hi Justin,

 

I build mine with a simple rectangular box, but .. I shortly started to notice, that some angeled sidepanels suit me better .. much easier to handle that way .. but it all depends on where you install your MBseq ..

Hi Justin,

Yes Me too, I have a simple ponoko wooden case. And I would prefer an angled panel indeed.

Thanks everyone - it seems like most would like to have the angled panel for usage, but it is good to have the flat version when needed. I will be making my case out of wood, so an idea I just had would be to make it rectangular, and then put a couple rare earth magnets in the end panels. Then I could make some matching end panels with a sloped shape. The magnets would hold the end panels on and place the sequencer in an angled position.
