Shock Proof Computer

This project involved the design of a light weight, shock proof computer housing capable of being removed as one entity from a ruggedised water proof field casing.

Extensive 3D modelling was used to fit the components into an enclosed space whilst ensuring easy assembly and access to components and cables for maintenance.

3D modelling used to design the fit of internal parts

300 x 200 Plastic Panel P1030775

Laser cut plastic panels to protect internal components

The first prototype in 3mm aluminium proved overly robust with a few issues of access. The second protoype in 2mm aluminium proved perfect.
