Hello everybody
I have purchased this great little synth from France, already built, because my soldering skills leave a lot to be desired, nevertheless I planned of building the case myself so here it is.

It was designed for and printed with an UP plus printer, but I guess any printer that can manage a form of support structure would work just fine. The printed model was printed in ABS with a 0.2 mm layer resolution and took around 14 hours of printing.

Thanks for your time and happy printing and playing with this wonderful synth.

This is a homemade design and was tested solely on my synth therefore I am not responsible if something goes wrong while building it.


Appart from the case the only additional thing you'd need are 10 nuts and bolts and a few drops of superglue for the facing of the LCD.I don't know the diameter of the screws but it's the same as those used on the synth. Actually the screws on the bottom of the synth proved to be too short and I used them on the upper side of the main cover, where the screws should be as short as possible so they won't damage the upper board of the synth.

The building/assembling steps I took were as follows:

  1. Print the parts
  2. Unscrew the screws holding the bottom card of the synth
  3. Attach the synth to the bottom part using 4 screws
  4. Glue the LCD facing to the top part
  5. Put all the nuts in their sockets
  6. Attach the top side, then the back side, the left and right side.
  7. Each side part has two sockets where, eventually, you can glue some rubber feet to the sides (like I did) to keep the synth from sliding around on your desk
