this was painful.
I printed image on gray paper with ink jet..clear-coated aluminum and stick paper onto that so it sticks to aluminum. then applyed two layers of clear-coat onto that.
drilling was painful. huh. glad it's over finally.

Wow a.b.o.z - that is a great looking panel! Shocked Shocked

Are those bananajacks the cheap ones from futurlec? Are you having trouble with them coming loose from the panel, I mean you tighten the nuts, but after plugging and unplugging for a while, the nuts on the jacks start to come loose. I have that problem...

Man, I really need to start thinking about my Klee as well...

I'm not really sure what I'm doing. But I love to design front panels.. Smile

Posted Image, might have been reduced in size. Click Image to view fullscreen.

It's designed to fit onto 2 pieces of 42HP eurorack frontpanels. I realize after looking at the awsome panel designs here that mine has a few flaws (Some places I didn't know if there was a pot, led or a swtich.. but I figured I'd get to know that eventually, and redesign afterwards..). And the double rows of LEDs come from me being tired and watching youtube (I thought I saw 2 rows of LEDs, but apparently not). Anyway I thought it could be cool to have the lower row just show the actuall step of the sequence, and the upper row the active bits.

Anyway - I'll probablt remake it once I get the whole project started.. Can't wait Cool

is there a basic template any of you used to start with? or a program for designing panels that already has all the knob and jack holes as templates?

i ask because i will be wanting to start this in the spring and i figure i shoud learn a good klee design program.

I drew mine with Visio, and it's rather plain at that - maybe someone here has an FPD or something along those lines?

I was designing the front panel as a module of 84 hp. 3U.

I see, eg, fonik, is also 3U but for stand alone in the rack. What there is behind the front panel? Any standard case?

i am using a schroff multipac pro rack enclosure, i bought it from rs-components (order number 469-1105). i used such an enclosure for the baby10 as well. you can use more panel space than using an eurorack frame (no srew rails on top and bottom of the enclosure).

the enclosure consists of the frontpanel, a back panel and two side panels. one will have to order additional top and bottom covers and a mounting panel as well.
schaeffer would engrave a panel you send them. since i wanted a green anodized panel for the klee it was easier for me to let them do a new panel (the old is now resting in the drawer waiting for a future project). so i'd say i had to pay about 200.-EUR for the complete klee enclosure Shocked

After browsing through this thread, I have to say that there's some really creative panel designs for Klee.

I'm posting mine, which I laid out in Illustrator. It's not terribly special, but I got the layout to fit into some sheet-metal panels that I already had on hand. Nothing's labeled as per usual, but the flow is left to right, top to bottom.

1 big step closer to birthing a pair of Klees!

You should try some of this stuff (usually found at auto supply stores):

Threadlockers
Loctite® Threadlocker Green

# Prevents vibration loosening of pre-assembled fasteners
# For use on electrical connectors, instrumentation, screws, and set screws
# Ideal for fasterners #2 - 1/2"


Also comes in "red" (hi-temp), or "blue" (not sure what it's strength is).
