Over a year ago Alex posted "We're going to make the parts for a laser cut acrylic case available in a couple of weeks..." and "I think Alasdair is planning to distribute them directly, rather than through GroupGets as they will be distributed as kits from the UK".
According to your latest news item you "have recently added the design files to enable users to cut their own acrylic enclosure" and construction details have also appeared. Does this mean that there is no longer any intention to supply the enclosures in kit form as was promised?
I'm sure that there would be a large demand for these kits as it is likely to be prohibitively expensive to obtain the laser-cut parts in the typically small quantities that most users will require.
The acrylic case design files are out, they can be found in the resources and the instructions under News. However, it would be more useful to put the building instructions somewhere else on the website so they are easier to find.
Also, I wanted to ask: how much is the approximate price of the enclosures (depending on order quantity)? We need to plan the budget for a large EU project.
I've just had an update from Peter Prince...
"...the enclosures are still coming. We have been designing a waterproof protective case which can house the AudioMoth without limiting its recording ability. The design is complete, we are in the process of co-ordinating manufacture. We'll have more information about it soon."
AudioMoth development has been linked to two PhD projects so inevitably progress with some developments such as the case has been slower than we may have liked. We should be patient and grateful for all the effort that has been put into these devices.
I just thought I'd add to the chorus of interested parties! I'm interested in the reply before I embark on building cases from other components.
