Eurorack Cases

Two Thirds B

Mid-build

I've re-used the power bus boards from previous case builds and setup a new configuration that is 4 rows, 10U, 104 HP. The intention this time is to limit myself to only the most inspiring modules and use spacers to fill the empty areas. After I've used it a few times I'll be able to tell if it works as-is, or if more from the collection needs to be included. Once it feels settled, I'll sell the remainder of units and be selective about any new ones.

This build is using pre-built rails and end pieces screwed into wood on the sides, but unlike the previous builds the front/back/bottom are made of cardboard. I'm also installing the TipTop power module into the case back/top to save some hp.

Skiff 3 (Cuthbert): 3U 84hp

Empty

Currently I'm using a homemade skiff comprised of thin plywood front/back panels and thick hardwood sides. The power is from a ╬╝ZEUS module with flying bus boards. This power setup allows for up to ten modules

Case 1: 7u 104hp case

Disassembled

Wooden case built from oak planks and plywood backing board. Planks are glued and screwed with butt joint corners. The backing is screwed only so as to be removable. The bus boards are attached to the backing board using screws. The case has three sets of rails, a 1U set with vector rails, threaded hole strips and end-caps designed for screwing into the inside of a case. The 1U set is sized for Intelligel sized modules. The rest is 2 x 3U, but otherwise same idea. Power is from Zeus Access Dual (using just one of the power inputs), two Zeus Studio Buses and one passive Bus.

Rack 1: 3U 104hp

Disassembled

Uses Zeus studio bus and a side mounted Dual-access (both from TipTop) for power. It involved making 3 parts: left/right brackets (3D printed) and a laser cut acrylic front panel. These parts, plus vector rails and threaded bars (from Pulp Logic) fit together to make the case.

Skiff 1: 4U 48hp mostly 3D printed skiff

Disassembled

Tried making a skiff that is sized to fit within my 3D printer's print bed. The design was basically a box with tracks for threaded bars to be inserted. I did a test print and then scrapped because PLA 3d printed walls felt terrible to hold and seems like a waste of material.

Skiff 2: 4U 48hp skiff

Disassembled

Taking a cue from Rack 1 and using the bracket and panel model, but for this small skiff size. Aiming to be as minimal as possible, and letting the vector rails create most of the structure.
