FOSDEM is a yearly conference of free and open source software developers with about 8000 visitors to 24 auditoria in parallel. They approached us to build a simple solution to structure their video devices and cabling. This turned from minimal cable management into a set of 50 custom wooden embedded cases. We did:
- design, including sourcing new electronic components
- production of the laser cut parts
- assembly of both mechanical and electronic components
- mechanical and software testing
The electronics are all carefully selected 5 and 12V components. That enables the use of a low-profile low-noise computer PSU.
As you can see from the pictures, all components have been stripped to the naked PCB where possible. That lowers weightn, makes assembly easier, and, more importantly, helps air flow and cooling.
For cooling, an ultra strong honeycomb structure was cut out of the side of the box. The airflow runs from these holes to the psu, across the only component that develops any heat: the BlackMagick H264 encoder.
The front panel was built using high quality Neutrik connectors and has a builtin LCD. That last one especially required some creative design skill.
T slot joints are a standard technique for building laser cut cases. Cases assembled like this are incredibly strong.
Did I mention we also had custom flight cases built?
The door sign. A most useful tool for busy people.
A simple music box. The song playing is “Das war in Schöneberg”, also known as the melody to “‘t Vliegerke”, the unofficial hymn of the people of Ghent, Belgium. The arrangement is by lusis.eu
We can easily personalise this for you:
- engraving on the box
- a (bigger back panel in the shape of your choice
- an arrangement or melody of your choice
Did you know that lusis.eu is led by a professional musician? We create your arrangement or melody on demand. For the arrangements, we have an agreement with the authoring rights society. This allows for sales across the entire EU.
Minimal order quantity: 20 pieces
Marriage party. Let’s be sure the guests don’t forget about it. With a fridge magnet!
Cultuurnet Vlaanderen is a Flemish semi-government cultural institution. They designed a compact case for their “uitpas” devices: a contactless loyalty card system for cultural events. These are being deployed at cultural institutions across the Dutch language community of Belgium (about six million people). We laser cut and engraved the acrylic parts for them. This is how the results look:
A cotton album cover for a wonderful indie band: Young and the oak people. We postprocessed the design starting from a pen drawing. Production involved laser cutting the cotton, engraving the artwork onto it, and sewing into a CD bag.
A cork coaster. Cork is a natural and hygienic material. Perfect for laser cutting.
