Title: OCS (Open Chassis System)
Post by: Kolgrima on May 18, 2019, 10:58:45 PM
Hello, folks just wanted to share something I've been working on for a bit. OCS is An Open Source Modular Chassis System. it's still in the early stages and is very much a work in progress, It was designed for use with a Brewboard but it could be easily tweaked for any board, I'm still working on documentation and probably a video tutorial on the best ways to print and set up the chassis.

I designed OCS to be flexible in that it is not only Modular but is also Parametric. This allows you to change the OD For example, of a part just by typing in the size you want. There are several parameters you can adjust on each part. OCS was also designed to be accessible and therefore can be printed with a standard FDM printer.

All source files are available with the intention that others can make and share parts based on the originals. I will personally also be adding more parts in the near future.

You can find all the files here;

Added some new parts to OCS, and made some improvements to the source files!
Hopefully, some folks may find them useful.

Any plans to include a crystal chamber in the future?

I may give it a try. FDM printers are not known for their great detail so any design would have to cope with that. I did do a Hybrid Brass and 3d printed Chamber but in the end, wasn't really happy with the printed parts. I may rework those parts but an all 3d printed chamber has crossed my mind.

I won't be able to get to my friend's house that has a 3D printer and make these for some time.  I'd be interested in purchasing those 3d printed parts that you have in the video above if they will fit an 18650 Battery, Switchcraft 2.1mm Power Jack, 2W 28mm 4ohm OD Bass Speaker, proffie board, and 4-40 threaded rods. They would need to be the diameter for a graflexshop 1.9 / original graflex.  Can you message me on this?
