Enclosure Summary

The enclosure for the computer is based on an aluminium profile frame with laser cut acrylic and plywood panelling. The original design was put together in the excellent SketchUp software before ordering the parts and moving on to the physical construction. The enclosure consists of an upper and lower unit with the lower unit containing all the various cards of the computer and the upper unit primarily acting as a display.
