Unsurprisingly the walls were too thin to make the cart. I'll make a thick-walled model and cast it but it'll be another week

Good news is it'll be an absolute tank when I'm finished

Invention and Art are like that.

Have you decided upon the fit, finish and color yet?

Just a reminder that I'm still working on this. The 3D printed reference will be on the way shortly but from there I'm not sure how long it will take.

 

Once the reference arrives it will be ready for casting.

 

Sorry if this is taking a bit longer than anticipated.  :(

I'll release the CAD files when I know they fit. I think it would be useful to have a TI cart spec standard of the sorts...

 

In the meantime I have the old Texas Instruments logo as an SVG if anyone needs it. The logo was taken from here and converted to an SVG by the amazing people who run this site! I only got the dimensions semi-right and added the text; I am an artist by no means.

 

Just save the text file below as an SVG

I'm ordering a second FinalGROM 99 and was wondering how your schedule is doing. I love the idea of an aluminum case. It's really a unique idea.

I actually got a friend that's willing to let me use his 3D printer. I just need to learn the ins/outs of the thing with school and such in my schedule

No worries! Take your time.

I will order one from you when you have made them. Studies come first!

Take care.
