Lasercut Acrylic Casebuilding Tutorial
Overview
After announcing the first public release of Juicebox on a few mailing lists and websites, there was quite a lot of interest in the acrylic cases I had made for the project. I thought I would put together a little tutorial on how I built them.

The foundation of this case construction has its roots in the various cases I have built over the years to house E Ink panels for demos. After experimenting with many different case designs, I have evolved this construction as one that produces sexy results without a huge amount of labor or cost.

The basic idea of the construction is to form a core that is as thick as your electronics package, then add a front plate and a back plate.

Most people don't have access to a lasercutter, but I'm pretty sure it wouldnt be that expensive to get it done at a shop. I'll keep an ear out for contacts at suitable places and post them if I hear of any.

This tutorial will walk through the construction of a case design for the standalone MP3 version of juicebox.
