Vampire 4 Case Concept

Hi I have been playing with some non official case designs for 3D print and my own enjoyment. I like to have the ability to pop off the top of the case quickly and keep the entire case really small.

I like it very much. I've been wondering if it's possible to create case for V4 which would somehow capture 80s wedge case design but wouldn't be ugly as hell. I thought it would not be possible but i was wrong.

It would be great if you could share 3D models when they are ready, it would be then time to dust my 3D printer...

@Manuel

Looks good :)

I like the original V4 case aswell, but your design captures the "amiga legacy" design.

Manuel, that's a pretty awesome design and very much in keeping with the Amiga spirit. Very CD32 like. In fact, for a moment I thought that slot above the DB9 ports was for a CD drive, which would have been awesome if it was. Any chance of a kickstarter to have these injection molded?

I'd get a V4 just to simply have one of these cases! :-)

Not bad!!

I mocked up something g last summer in TinkerCad that was A2000 inspired. Not rendered anywhere near as nice.

I really want something that can take both a CF drive and a CD rom drive on my V4. Or off not the Cd rom, then at least extra room for things like the RTC module, audio module, etc.

In my opinion it needs one more LED for SD activity and it just has to be Commodore-beige... :o)

Haha. Even Commodore couldn’t agree on what “Commodore Beige” was! Lol. I don’t think I’ve ever seen 2 C64s or 2 Amigas from different production runs that were exactly the same color.

This only makes it much easier to make it "Commodore beige". C'mon, Manu, there are no excuses any more! :o)
