Thanks for the kind words! You’re right that the case is still in development and so the below isn’t set in stone, but where I’m currently at:
Are you going to offer a built-in power supply?
I’m investigating the possibility of powering the case with a battery, making for an ultra-portable setup. Up to this point I’ve been designing with a power module and external adapter in mind, in order to keep the case as small as possible and help it to run cool.
What is the depth inside the “main” case, including and / or excluding the power system?
2.5", but I want to try a slightly deeper case for the next prototype.
The plywood looks quite sturdy, what about the weight ?
Yeah the plywood is strong, I’m using it to get the best trade-off between strength and weight. Filled with modules mine is about 11lbs/5kgs, which is significantly lighter than other cases I’ve used – about a quarter of the weight. It’s made it so much easier to walk about with the case and take it wherever I need to go on foot, and also the size of it means its been much more manageable on planes/trains.
When it’s finished, are you planning to offer the design “as is”, or would it be possible to get it without the handle and / or the lid (for people who travel with flight cases anyway)?
I’m absolutely up for offering customised designs – I’m already thinking about left-handed and right-handed versions, different lids, different finishes, and a few more things I’m not able to talk about yet. But yes, I’d be happy to make simple custom alterations!
