I added the H8 Chassis CAD to the website. The format is for SolidWorks .sldprt files. Hopefully soon we will be able to build such chassis and upgrade it as needed.

Beautiful work. I think we have your son to thank? Great!

 

I’m guessing the setup costs would be high for re-creation of the actual sheet metal chasis? But could send this to some metal shops and see what they say?  I would think you’d need quantities in the dozens or even hundreds of units to make this worthwhile? The aluminum front panel is much simpler (a few cut-outs and bends) and might be more easily reproduced.

 

However with these spec’s as a guide we could create alternative cases (e.g. plexiglass) that largely conform to the original size. For those who will house only more modern boards (H8-2000+) the convection cooling needs would be significantly less and a solid top panel would be a possibility…

Indeed! He gets his engineering bachelor degree this May. 😊

 

I will like to get a quote just for fun and then we can look at alternatives as you mentioned.

Also I asked the S-100 Chassis group for feedback/help for the H8 Chassis.

Could these be exported to a format that would allow us to open them?  I'm thinking DXF or some other format so we can use an open source cross platform tool to preserve them.

Possible Formats: PARASOLID, ACIS, STEP, IGES, SOLIDWORKS, JT, COLLADA, RHINO, GLTF, OBJ, STL.

 

Let me know which one works for you.

 

Thanks,

Norberto
