Hello everyone!

I am honored to proudly announce our brand - "Dangerous Technologies" or DNGR:TECH and our first product - Eurorack 12U Portable Case named "12UFO":

















I've been designing the case since September'15 in professional CAD software and put all my engineer knowledge altogether to make it sturdy and reliable. I've programmed different simulation scenarios in CAD software to make the design scientifically precise. For example, handle placement on the top of the case or stand placement and material thickness used for stand manufacture - CAD simulation analysis has been used for calculation and decision making:


Handle material deformation simulation study


Old stand version simulation study


Handle placement simulation study

Regarding the case hardware - I spent decent time sourcing components all over the globe and hope you'll like my taste.

Small-batch test scale production of our portable 12U cases has been already finished. All cases have found their owners, positive feedback has been received as well.

DNGR:TECH eurorack cases are carefully assembled by hand from the highest quality of materials, and are symbolized by minimalist aesthetics to bringing focus solely on sound design – hidden screws and simple straight lines combined with the raw natural wood are the key elements in the design. Also, it is worth mentioning that DNGR:TECH cases are not just great looking – they combine high level of exterior protection as well, though you shouldn't throw it or perform fall tests smile Soft case protection is currently in development.

DNGR:TECH cases are Zen Philosophy inspired, hand built and are brought to this world for your happiness and joy.

Case Specification

104hp x 4 rows (12U).

- Length: 570 mm (22.44 in)
- Width: 315 mm (12.40 in)
- Height: 235 mm (9.25 in)
SUM dimensions = 1120 mm (44.09 in)

LED strip installed in lid - great for dark places and clubs - no need in external lamp.

Allowable module depth:
1) Base: <59.5 mm (2.34 in) on rows without the power distribution board behind.
2) Lid: <77.6 mm (3.06 in) on rows without the power distribution board behind.

Busboard consumes 10-15 mm depending on the model. Makenoise PowerBus consumes about 13 mm of allowable module depth.

Weight without modules: 7-7.5 kg (depending on wood).

Case can save a patch while closed.

Clearance above rails when case is closed (for saving a patch inside): 83 mm (3.27 in).

Detachable steel stand that allows two opened lid positions: 100° and 120°.

Meets most Airplane carry on requirements but should be double checked before boarding.

Rails with Sliding Nuts. 30 M3 nuts per rail are included. 240 M3x6 (standard) screws may be included on demand as well.

Removable lid - case can be split in two independent cases.

Spring washers prevents loosening and provide reliable connections of all external hardware such as handles, feets and toggle latches.

Metal threaded inserts ensures a strong, resistant and reliable thread in wood allowing multiple case maintenance procedures and wood side panels replacement.


Power Options

Currently we are using this high voltage power supply solution:
03.01.2017 UPDATE: This PSU is end-of-sale!



It accepts 110-220v and regulates it to +12v 1.4A, -12v 1.4A and +5v. Basically it is a doepfer PSU3 clone with integrated noise filtering busboard. Our psu is using the same voltage regulators as in new Doepfer PSU-3 - a pair of Meanwell IRM-20-15.

The major issue with this power supply - we cannot ship cases with this power supply installed since according to USA/EU local legislation high voltage power supply sources must be imported with a certificate of compliance of different regulations. We sent one case to our friend in Italy and it was rather terrifying waiting for the successful shipment since we didn't know whether EU customs will open the box and examine the details of the package or not.

This is why we are currently designing our brand new low-voltage power supply which will be powered by a simple wall-wart all over the globe, like make noise power board. We plan to finish it in one month. I will post update when it will be ready and tested for a large scale production.

Also there is power supply available from our friends and partners - www.motovilo.com:



It costs $135 for power supply board + two noise filtering bosboards. So for 12UFO case two of these are needed.
A pair of external power bricks for this type of power solution is required to be purchased by a customer separately (DC 60W 15V), so please take this into account. Any wall wart notebook type power supply with the same specification (60W, 15V) will fit fine. We recommend this power brick: Mean Well GS60A15-P1J. But any good brand standard DC 15V 60W (center positive 2.1*5.5 mm plug type) will fit. I will provide support on picking correct power bricks in customer's origin country on customer's request if needed.
Motovilo power solution specification is as follows: +12v @ 2A, -12v @ 1A, Onboard VGreg provides +5v from +12v bus. So for a 12UFO case it would be +12v @ 4A, -12v @ 2A.
The power has already been tested and gained positive feedback from musicians and producers.
This power solution is available right now.


Price

$600 UNPOWERED.
Price for the powered version will be announced later. We are aiming at $800.

December'16 UPDATE: due to high demand the price tag is now $700 for unpowered cases. All paid orders will be completed without a price increase. All the new orders are subject to the new price tag.

Powered cases are now $970. Power solution is made by www.motovilo.com

Yes, I am updating the technical design a bit according to received feedback from my clients and making small improvements with materials and hardware in order to reduce some weight. Visually the changes will not be noticeable but those improvements are important for me since I pay a lot of attention even to small details. New updated improved batch will be out in 2-3 weeks or so.

You are absolutely right - there are two positions you can fix the lid of the case - 100° and 120° relative to the table. I spent a lot of time finding correct, user friendly and compat multi poisiton stand technical design and proud of what we have to offer now.

120° position:

Does the LED strip have a dimmer?

We sold a few cases from the starting batch for this price (plus $200 for two power bus boards) and people were happy smile

I tested a few simple led dimmers on my breadboard and already designed PCB in Eagle CAD for the chosen design. Currently I am deciding the place for the pcb and dimmer potentiometer. Can't promise led dimmer will be available on the next batch but we plan to add it sooner or later, work in progress.

This is hitting all my requirements. I wish I was in the market for a case now. The only (minor) criticism that I have is that I hate having the mains power connectors in the rails area. I understand why you did this, but I want my precious hp!

You're right, criticism totally accepted. Initially I was trying to make the side panels as clean as possible, as you may see I achieved this - no any screws or connectors. But people hate loosing their HP so with the new power I am going to remove the front panel and place DC connector, LED dimmer controls and power switches to the side panels like monorocket case. Hope this will not disturb the minimalism aesthetics.

These look beautiful, and the price point is even better.

How plausible would a 14u version be with an extra 1u row on both sides? I was getting rather excited by the Birdkids Control Bus and looking for cases with 1u rows... if I could somehow get that in one of these that would be about as a perfect as a case could get!

Thank you for the kind words, the price is really what makes the case affordable.
I am not planning to launch a 7U version in near future. I am going to focus solely on manufacturing next batch of cases and current 12U model improvements. There are plans for 6U model and maybe 3U model with the same sturdy and practical design and affordable price.

UPDATE:

1) We have finalized the LED light dimmer design, it will be presented on a separate PCB with separate voltage regulator so no current will be drawn from the main power bus board as well as no any interference occur between the modules and LED light. No additional wall warts will be required as well - the power for LED will be routed from the main DC power jack via a pair of Y-cables. The LED dimmer design has been already tested, we expect the manufacturing will be completed by the November.

2) All the cases will include a small soft bag for the stand with two internal pockets to avoid scratches:





3) Our web-site is now operational - http://dngr.tech

applause great work on the well thought out design, love the light too. I was wondering about what to do with the stand pieces, then saw the nice solution as I read the next page. thumbs up

I agree with not using HP for power, but everything else looks spot on.

a LOT of bang for the Never maintain cash savings again

This is going to happen as soon as I will assemble the next batch of cases and ship them to all who preordered them. This is going to happen in November.

Thanks for the info. Didn't know batches have been going out. I'll start saving.
talfred
This case looks really nice, and has good price too! The price itself has made me want to buy this one instead of making a DIY case.

I have a question; is it possible to mount a doepfer PSU (the new version) in it?
And how does power travel between the base and the lid?


Personally, I'd prefer to have the power outlet on the left side. But at least it's not on the back as on the Doepfer low cost cases.

just posting here to stay informed.. the case looks amazing!

Currently, I am not planning to build custom cases with custom power solutions.
The power doesn't travel between the base and the lid. Each part has it's own power supply and separate power supply brick. This is the most common solution on the market.
funkyjunky
Update:

We add a LED strip light dimmer to the case which will be hidden inside it (no loss in max. module depth). This component will be presented on a separate PCB with separate voltage regulator so no current will be drawn from the main modular power supply as well as no any interference occur between the modules and LED light strip. No additional wall warts will be required as well - the power for LED will be routed from the main DC power jack via a pair of Y-cables (accepts 15-20v) . It will be possible to control the LED strip light level with a potentiometer. Light can be completely turned off.

Here is a small preview of the LED strip light dimmer in action:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-MCW88clBo - nevermind the tall caps (waiting for correct SMT caps in my mailbox) and two non-functional LEDs in the strip (led factory manufacturing defect).

You can connect lid and base with one switch?
funkyjunky
hawkfuzz wrote:

This is not possible since basically this is two separate cases with detachable hinges which can be used separately thus giving a flexibility. I don't see any good reasons to make one switch for two different halves of the cases. If you observe some good points to implement this please let me know so that I can consider and think off about implementing them in the future updates. Thanks.

Finally received the DNGR:TECH UFO-12 104hp 12U case.

It was worth the wait! It is very well-built and solid, with really nice wood ends, an embossed logo, a dimmable LED light strip panel/power supply on the top lid, an adjustable angle lid stand (lids separate at the hinge too) and keyed bus boards. There are rubber feet on the back, front and bottom surface away from the handle, so you can set it down safely without scratching the surface.

I dropped in a bunch of modules including Erica Synth Wavetable and Fusion VCO's as well as Mutable Instruments modules with custom black Magpie panels. It looks great and the lid stand creates a perfect angle for the top lid modules. There's considerably more depth on the top lid than the bottom.

Ilya Meylikhov has been very straight with me from the beginning, and let me know details about the manufacturing process up until the shipment finally made it here. He seems like a trustworthy fellow, and if you have the patience to order this case, you will be a happy camper once it arrives.

Here are a bunch of photos I took of the case, with a couple shots of modules in the case.

Nice case.

I have a question for you..


Can you sell just the PSU3 clone board? I saw no mention of it for sale on either sites. Seems to me that you can just sell it separately and let the consumer put the PSU3 clone in their new case at their discretion.



Thanks

Thanks!
Unfortunately, the powered busboard is out of production since we don't have enough human resources to maintain different kinds of power supplies. Also, we decided to move to switched power supply since high voltage power supplies are prohibited for import in almost all coutries which is not a problem for 15V switched psu. If you want to buy http://www.motovilo.com switched psu and busboard you are welcome in the http://www.sssrlabs.com store.

Thank you guys for the kind words!

Since we are constantly improving design and functionality, I am proud to announce that the new batch of cases come even with a smaller number of visible screws. In the upcoming revision power supplies and busboards will be mounted completely hidden. Now the cases will have a purely luxury feel:

This case looks very promising.
I ordered two and had it in a ridiculously short time considering he built to order.

Got first one filled and hope to do some rearranging this weekend to get 2nd done.

Will be testing mobility/performance next month.

Nope, for the current revision it didn't happen yet. There is no any other place for a potentiometer to control the led light. Will you sacrifice the dimmable led functionality (on/off switch instead) for the 4hp additional space on the rails? If the answer is "yes" I can make a custom case for you with the power dc jack and switch located on the back of the case. If you're intrested drop me a message on info@dngr.tech.

Cheers!
funkyjunky
Keeping you updated on the current development stage and now it's time for the next update applause

The current revision has the following improvements:
1) The stand is now 2x wider.
2) New thumb screws with a black plastic head are now used for stand mounting for better grip. It significantly improved the stand mounting procedure:



3) Modifications in the stand — now it is possible to mount the stand with the lid being flexible. Now you can close the lid after wiggling without unscrewing it from the stand. It gives a better protection from dust while your modular is not used:



Rockin' Banana!

The way to combat the "wasting HP space" complaint is to add something more to the panel than just the IEC connector port. I use front facing power panels on all four of my Doepfer P6 cases and would not have it any other way. If they are on the back or sides it takes away from the options of laying them flat or next to each other. What I did was add a TRS breakout and a USB 5V power outlet to mine. That way I can power and convert the signals from my QuNexus keyboards or iPads. Looks like this:

Yes, the power is great. plenty of power and no noise.

Wasn't sure how I felt about having the LED light but I use it quite a bit.
Handy for dark venues or helping to see in a dense patch.
The dimmer is really handy for getting the ambiance right for shows and blasting to full brightness for photos... hihi

Overall I am loving these cases.
Have done a few shows with each and have even used one half of a case to give a tutorial to someone because I was pressed for time to rearrange the case for handful of modules that were needed.

Seems like it's getting harder and harder to find a reliable, good looking and somewhat affordable 12U case.

But this one seems to be in the top running for me and seeing as I'm out of space, I have few options about what path to take. eek!

Thanks for the supporting photos and review @kuxaan-sum! I think that sold me.
ccastellanossf
This is a well-designed beautiful case. My one concern is with it's ruggedness and durability for traveling. Even though the materials and build quality look very good, I would still be concerned if I ever had to fly with it as checked luggage or god forbid it falls in the water or something. Although less sexy, something like tolex (Monorocket) or ballistic (Elite) coating or even a Pelican-like case (e.g. Synthrotek) really puts my mind at ease. While this would no doubt increase the price, I feel that some kind of case protection is a must-have.
dash80
Those concerns all sound worthy for sure.

I'm not as worried about traveling with it, because, well, I won't be traveling with it much. I just want something I can move around (still patched) without being a dedicated case in the corner of my living room.

Being able to take it places is only a + for me and I still haven't seen many dedicated non-mobile cases in 12U that tickle my fancy anyway.
ccastellanossf
So... any updates on this? When will it retail in the US?

Also, may I suggest a higher current psu option (e.g. 10A) so that it can handle the cold inrush current from tube modules (e.g.Metasonix).

Unfortunately, I am as a founder of DNGR:TECH, changed my mind regarding running larger batches and selling cases via distributors. The main reason is that I am totally satisfied with the sales volume we had and the time spent assembling the cases. Our aim is to make a good quality hand-crafted product that is not massively available on the mass market, thus making the product rare and unique. Currently, our cases are being sold via our web-shop: https://dngr.tech though it is out of stock since we are closed till the end of the summer holidays.

No plans to add the 10A PSU option since it will require massive R&D. No time and resource currently available for this task. Maybe in the future.
Cheers!

A little review:

Added myself on the waiting list for a batch scheduled in november. There were some delays in the production but @funkyjunky was really communicative during the whole process. Got my case in december. Got help from @funkyjunky with choosing the right power bricks and other miscellaneous things. Overall the costumer service was top notch!

As for the case: It's great! Can't recommend it enough.

Great build quality! Nice materials. Sturdy.
Super nice looking. I mean WOW! The wood panels look great. And the finish of the case as a whole too.
Smart design! The detachable stand is great, easy to remove and put back again. Room for patched cables when taking it on the road... And the LED light is really not just a gimmick, it's a lifesaver!

Really think this could be the best portable eurorack case around!

PS: Couldn't post a pic, since this is my first post here.

not the same quality admittedly but fully functional.

This is hitting all my requirements. I wish I was in the market for a case now. The only (minor) criticism that I have is that I hate having the mains power connectors in the rails area. I understand why you did this, but I want my precious hp!


You're right, criticism totally accepted. Initially I was trying to make the side panels as clean as possible, as you may see I achieved this - no any screws or connectors. But people hate loosing their HP so with the new power I am going to remove the front panel and place DC connector, LED dimmer controls and power switches to the side panels like monorocket case. Hope this will not disturb the minimalism aesthetics.


The way to combat the "wasting HP space" complaint is to add something more to the panel than just the IEC connector port. I use front facing power panels on all four of my Doepfer P6 cases and would not have it any other way. If they are on the back or sides it takes away from the options of laying them flat or next to each other. What I did was add a TRS breakout and a USB 5V power outlet to mine. That way I can power and convert the signals from my QuNexus keyboards or iPads. Looks like this:


adding an IEC port will require certification of the whole product. Wasn't that the reason for dropping the original power solution?

yeah. like, intellectually, it bothered me giving up 4 hp. but it's pretty damn useful to have the dimmer right there. i don't mind it at all.

looks like my dream case.

I like the simplicity of not having to remove the ring pieces, like in other models. But the tradeoff is the high panel borders at the sides.

¿is this a real issue? is it a bit unconfortable to handle the knobs near the side panels?

Hi,

most of the plane cabin size in europe are 56cm max.
what is the thikness of the wood on the sides ?

question : is it possible to have a version of this 12U with 1cm less ?!?
i can see the screws holding the wood parts.. maybe it's possible for me to DIY it for a thinner piece of wood to match 56cm ?

Hi
The thikness of the wood on the sides is 18 mm. Currently there are no plans to make a thinner version since there are threaded inserts which requires the sides to be not less than 18 mm.
