Version 0.1 from December 2020
Eurorack case that I made for my modular synth drum machine project. It’s built around two pairs of rails with a length of 17.05 inch (43.3 cm).
I designed the case in a free CAD software called SketchUp for Web.
The outer dimensions are (W x H x D): 457 x 290 x 162 mm.
Then I went for it in the workshop 🪚
I built it around the rails with some blank panels to get the spacings 100%ly right.
Some fine hours later it was finished.
Top: The power plug socket is secured by an aluminum plate.
Back: The planned ventilation slots became holes. Easier to drill.
Bottom and back: I put rubber feet on the bottom and on the back wall. So I can operate the rack standing and lying without scratching anything with the screws.
Side: After carrying the whole thing around a few times, I added handles to the sides.
Rails: They are from Schneidersladen in Berlin. I sawed the profile at the top of all four. This way I can easily get the square nuts in.
- Technical drawing and dimensions (PDF) – If you’re going for it, check all the dimensions and positions again carefully. I had some challenges, especially with the holes for the rails 🤓
I would have had more space (and less fiddling) between the screws for the rails if I had installed the profiles the other way around. Next time 🤷♂️
