I’m about to take the plunge and order a Shruthi-1 kit, the demo’s sound really great!
I’ve been looking around for case ideas, and really like smrl’s design (http://www.ponoko.com/design-your-own/products/single-shruti-1-enclosure-rev-2-4393). I have a few questions though:
1) Has anyone successfully built revision 2 in Bamboo? How well does the top fit on and what methods have people used to secure it?
2) Is the rev. 2 design compatible with the Shruthi-1, as it looks like it was originally designed for the Shruti-1?
3) Does anyone have any other words of wisdom before I go for it?
This case is not for the Shruthi-1.
Maybe the Blacky Case is what you are looking for?
Hey, thanks for the replies guys, probably should have taken a closer look at that case as it’s clearly not Shruthi-1 compatible! Blacky looks great though, are the plans available for that one?
You dont need plans to ponoko it yourself, just ask Olivier
The design (looks wow) is not mine, its for the shruti-1 and it was quite difficult to keep closed. The bracing ans screw tabs revision didn’t work well with straight bamboo as it likes to break along the grain. The multi-directinal play bamboo fixes that. I also made my wires too long, clearance was very very snug due to the angle. Its running, but I ended up using gorilla glue.
