For those interested:

Yes, this will fit in a Frac, a 2U wide MOTM panel or a MU panel. THe outside pc board dimensions are 4.1 x 2.6 inches. The depth behind the front panel is 1.75in (with Euro cable inserted).

BTW: if you want a MOTM-style power cord instead, then state this in the PayPal note box. PayPal address is: synth1@airmail.net

Nice move, Paul, thanks! :tu:

Can haz RRE FPE FPD file? 8_) I'll probably make some changes to the Robert Rich panel but it would be nice to have as a starting point.

I have uploaded additional docs people may find useful:

Highly detailed CAD drawing of the 'stock' Euro panel:

www.synthtech.com/euro/e350/e350_panel_cad.pdf

and a jpg of the Euro E350 panel graphics. I've decided not to distribute 'native' CAD images, you have to do some DIYing here.

Awesome news... This is prehaps my 'most wanted' module at the moment and has been for some time.

now I just have to find the coin to make it happen. How many of these kits do you have available? Do you expect to run out of kits quickly??

Wow! I'll have to study this to see if I can fit it behind a 1U wide 5U panel. :mrgreen:

This would set me back about :75: for a FPE panel. :doh:

Would a "group buy" appreciably reduce the cost of the panels?

:hmm:

I am putting mine on a bridechamber 2u "oops" panel which i will attempt to screen print myself.
It has the right amount of pot cutouts, one extra jack cutout which ill just double up one of the outputs, and an extra switch position, which ill use for the "phase mode" switch.

a) there is a large price drop for 4 FPE panels of the same design. Another big drop at 10 panels.

b) I can make as many kits as there is demand as I have over 100 stuffed board sets.

Richard - using your blacet design elements, I'm planning on making a 1U panel for this. Yes, it will all fit, although I'm not sure what kinds of pots I'd have to use. Spectrols would fit nicely, but that'd add another :75: to the price (sorry, couldn't resist)

If we can agree on having holes for the phase mode and possibly the disable interpolation as well :)

here's what i have come up with in FPE, If i decide to do that (or a bunch of people feel like buying them maybe someone more experienced could work on the pot markings.)
$60 and change from FPE

Those pot holes look a bit small?

They are 7.5mm for 16mm alphas, (which use an M7 thread there)

I just bit and ordered. :mrgreen:

I expect I'll design my own 5U panel, but I'm interested in what people are doing.
