DIY 1U Tile Case

From: $30.00

DIY version of the EuroTile Case! Includes everything to build the case, and optionally a pre-built power PCB for solderless construction. 

Case is made from high grade Baltic birch plywood. Construction requires only glue and clamps. Check out the product gallery for some finishing options.

The case fits 12 1U Tile modules in three rows of four, with power underneath each module. There is also two 10-pin Eurorack power headers.

PCB options:

Power Adapter – optional

The case uses a "standard" laptop power supply with 2.1mm or 2.5mm barrel connectors (both fit the DC Jack used in the BOM). If you have one of these lying around it should work fine as long as it can supply between 18-20VDC and at least 2A.

This power adapter is 65W 3.42A 19VDC output. Input: 100V-240V AC.
