Here is the preview of the case. This is not final design. Now I am implementing some improvements suggested by Piotr.
We are days away from production. Any preference in terms of colour and finish for the case?
Btw, site https://www.diy-a586.com is progressing well. I will expedite development so we can have one place where people can get support, license keys, claim warranty if needed and finally purchase boards, cases, power supplyes etc..
Perhaps getting healty stock of PS/2 keyboards and mouses is not a bad idea. Also we will try to keep prices lowest possible so everyone can afford assembled boards.
Since board is "open design" we will also make sure everything is available as DIY kit - Case design, component locator, software, precise component specs etc...
I made one of the copies with something like that. Height 47mm. I just need to print the sides. From a piece of laminate I made a board connecting the floppy disk drive with the "motherboard". Brass threaded spacers are soldered to the laminate. 3D printed bottom.
