The old case was pretty ugly;
but now the PCB has been extracted;
Liberated! Time to design a new case!
Right now I've built all components in the computer so I'm planning on playing around in rhino for a bit for layout and then doing the main case body in Gravity Sketch next week then final touch-ups in rhino or Solidworks.

I started by making a physical cad file of the PCB, sensor and volume control. This will be used to make the case around and decide where to lay out components.
A few things are generalized like the solder pads on the main board but this should make for a good Jensen SCR-68C reference file.

Anyways, if you read the article you'll notice they comment on how the casing looks pretty terrible. It was, indeed terrible. Essentially a bunch of polystyrene glued together.
It worked, but damn was it ugly.
So, considering i'm busier than ever and doing too many side projects as it is I figured what was the harm in one more. So a new case it is!
I'm not planning on changing the circuit board much right now, its been heavily modified already. This project was initially inspired by Kreosan! See:
