ok... the prototype of my new "superflat" aluminum enclosure is here. comes with the smallest possible dimensions and the aluminum has an ultrafine anodized surface with a superb black silkscreening wich is done before anodizing! so the silkscreening is light-genuinly, absolutely resistant against scratches, caustic solutions or whatever. (under normal use)
there are CNC welded screw mounts for direct PCB mounting, no more stands needed. fits 100%
the dimensions: 205mm x 240mm x 42mm height. a standard x0xb0x will fit if you extend the 2200µF caps with wire. (it works)
the price-target is approximately 89 euros per kit including all screws, washers, power switch and aluminum side rails.
with a bit of luck under 80 euros! there are some negotiations with the manufacturer ;)
you'll see some scratches on the inner surface of the frontplate... but hey... it's just the prototype :mrgreen:
check the pics if you like and begin flame ;)
