(closed) Dynalo Mini enclosure group buy

Recommended Posts

Cspirou, I would like the holes for any externally visible screws countersunk. How are you collecting that info, and do these small customizations impact the price? As you asked I'm providing my request, but I would assume this compicates the group buy a bit.

@Flyingsparks - since I am already doing this for Pars it should not be an issue. I haven't heard back on the quote yet but I already know that there is no difference between the Alpha and TKD versions

Not sure it's a good idea to countersink such thin panels (IIRC 0.09"?). I assume the panels have to be that thickness to fit the jacks?

The corners are already counter-sunk and it seems to work fine. Measured thickness is about 2.5mm or 0.1".

The panel is a lot more flexible in the middle than the corners, and the jacks are the only thing holding the PCB in place, which is pretty heavy with heatsinks. Just something to consider.

Kerry countersunk his:

johnwmclean countersunk all but the Neutrik jack holes. I'm ok with only the corners countersunk, or whatever. John's panels were 2.5mm thick.

Not sure on Kerry's but they look about that as well.

Kerry's panel looks about twice as thick, see the one counterbored hole he didn't put the bolt in. Kerry, did you put a slot in on the other side for the PCB to fit through, or something?

John's design looks good, too.

Power LED indicator has been expanded to 3mm and I moved everything up by a couple mm to give more room under. Unless there's any glaring errors I consider this my final variation.

If anyone still wants a case and hasn't ordered one, please contact me immediately.

That back plate is.1".  I'm using low profile socket cap screws for that.

Order was submitted last night. Now just wait 3-5 weeks.

in the meantime I will be confirming addresses and getting packaging organized. There's a chance that the cases will be individually packaged already, which will make things easier.

Any update on these?

He said it's going to be about 2 weeks and apologized for the delay. Also mentioned an issue with the fonts changing when he opens the files in his software so I'm helping him rectify that.

First post has been edited to include PDFs with vectorized versions of the fonts. When I applied the vectorization it seems to reduce the size, however when I zoomed in and did a side by side comparison they looked identical. Can anybody give the files a quick look to let me know of any issues? Then I'll send them ASAP.

It does seem to have that appearance. However when I do a side by side comparison with identical zoom, I see no differences. Even taking a partial screenshot of one and adding transparency to see what the difference is results in a perfect overlap.

I had both zoomed in and tried to have them at the same sizing. I’m ok with the vectored font rendering; just liked the original better.
What did you use to do the layouts? Are they accepting these as PDFs or are you giving them CAD files of some sort?
Thanks!

I use a vector program called Intaglio although I would have used Adobe Illustrator if I had it. I asked what format he wanted the drawings and he said he was fine with PDFs.

I have a couple open source CAD programs but they are a bit cumbersome to use and ended up just being easier with Intaglio.
