I think this is a neat project and actually fits with something I've been working on. I look forward to reading more about it.
With the pictures in the previous post you can see how far I've got. Unfortunately, the cost of getting each part machined the traditional way would come to about £2500 !! This is the harbinger that is a major problem. I had naively assumed that progress had reduced costs. There is the 3d printer option such as Shapeways, however, they don't do brass or fine threads.
The drawings could do with extra refinment. In terms of a colaborative community project I don't know where to go from here.
Does anyone want an enclosure like this?
Do other people experience problems with enclosures for their projects?
Does anyone know how to get parts such as in the above made up at low cost?
Feel free to add your sketch or drawing ideas for components / building blocks to make up enclosures.
