Any chance for an ALM Squid Salmple, Industrial Music Electronics Hertz Donut Mk3, or Erogenous Tones Radar/Blip? Those are the big three silver ones in my rig... I love all the pics in this thread though!

We desperately need black panel options for the IME modules! Can anyone make it happen?

1. Scan the panel so you can make new artwork.
2. Blast off the original surface.
3. Powdercoat in matte black.
4. Heat cure 400 degrees for 10 minutes
5. Shoot and setup screen.
6. Print with two part epoxy ink.
7. Heat cure after air dry. 325 degrees for 25 minutes.
8. Reassemble and enjoy!
:hihi: this reminds me of when my father-in-law gives me step by step instructions on how “easy” it is to do construction projects to our house... meanwhile skipping dozens of details and years of experience :yay:

Just finished up making a template for the Piston Honda MK3, template for it can be found here. https://github.com/retoid/Module-Panel- ... Mark%20III

The plan is to make up some matte black and gold panels for it but there is a hurdle. The orange LCD lens/filter is glued onto the original panel. There are instructions for replacing this on the IME website, but it opens up room for more problems when replacing the panel. I sent an email asking if IME would be willing to sell me a small batch of these. I'll update as I have more info.

I've actually asked them about the Hertz Donut as well, still waiting on a response. Just curious, how did you go about making that template? If I could figure that out, I'd consider just having my own versions made for a few modules, but I don't want to pay a bunch of money to test if I got the spacing right on the panels...

@ihavea4
I think some people with scanners will scan the panel and then make sure it's at proper size in a graphics program. Where you can then draw over it with vectors which can be used with some machines.
The way I do it is kind of tedious, I measure the panel with calipers and enter in the drill locations etc. in KiCad's PCBnew application. Then print it out and lay the panel over top and carefully inspect if everything is aligned and make adjustments as needed, then repeat that until I'm satisfied it's accurate enough.

I so wish someone would do a black faceplate for the intellijel dual adsr. It seems like exactly what i want function/soundwise, but it's going to be my only white module in the case. Bummer

Beautiful. Unique feel with all the sliders.

How do you like the two 512 oscillators? Thinking of a pair myself...

@deltaphoenix love it! Thanks for posting!

I swear Gur needs to make those cases in black - I imagine they would be ultra popular (I’m aware that the current offerings already are super popular... just saying)

Intellijel seems to have some pathological fear of the dark. Nary a black panel to be found...

I am aiming for 9 oscillators like the system 700.
I got 6 right now 2x 512 +2x 510. They are great as a big dronemonster.

retoid - Your 1U black panels look beautiful!
I'm itchy to make an order when they're available.

Still hoping that you will include the new Intellijel dual-vca in the series.

Yes, very nice indeed.

Are you still using Escrow for PCB fab?

If you're going to fully black it out, get all black brackets, rails, and threaded inserts, too. Shameless plug for my all black eurorack hardware business. Eskatonic Modular
