OP has not visited TechPowerUp for some time, therefore I am closing this for now to avoid further comment/disappointment, happy to re-open at OP's request should he return.

Hi Arg-ist
Hi
Please write your Email to my inbox
Hi Arg-ist,

I also sent you a PM. It would be great if I can get a copy of that drawing file...

Or if anyone else can assist...

Kind Regards

If he hasn't responded in a while ping again I think he sent them to me once and I should be able to dig them up!

Would anyone be willing to send me the design files as well? I'm currently using a Cosmos II enclosure & had pretty much given up on finding any sort of transparent panel for it.

He will reply he always does! Hopefully he can resend them to me too. How do you plan to produce the window using the files?

Fab lab at university accepts jobs from students and staff. Students practice various fabrication techniques by taking on submitted jobs as part of their studies. There's always the chance the lab won't accept certain job submissions due to complexity or tooling, but in that case there's other alternatives I could call on. Worst case I could go multi-process by having one shop do the cut, then another perform the bend the panel would need.

Where are you located in the world? Sounds like a great plan! I have access to a cnc shop but I don't know if they can work with a corel file?

USA-FL. Assuming the Corel files are 2D raster sketches, I'd import them as canvases in SolidWorks or Fusion 360. Trace the important features, then scale appropriately using measurements taken from the original side panel. Once a 3d model can be generated from the sketch planes, export it as whatever format the shop needs. The mounting/latch pin assemblies should be movable from original to new panel. Might need to create adapters if there are problems attaching or aligning the panel, especially since the original has varying thickness along its length.

MY friend wanted to buy a plexi sidewindow for cosmosII

It costs 160 USD . and shipping 184 USD (UPS). A great summe.He asked if ı can make his window.

I had seen a lot of selfmade Windows , but their quality was not sufficiently.
Max. 5mm plexi or with ugly hinges. Or some hard mods at he case..

This is original side panel from mnpctech



He sent the original CosmosII window to me with original hinges

and I made him a clear sidewindow panel. With original hinges.

Nothing must be modified at the case.. if he wants he can mount the original door too.

First the dimensions..next drawing at corel , and laser cut…

I used 10 mm plexi (original is 12mm thick (it was diffucult to find 12mm plexi in goog quality..)

This is 10 mm lasercut sidewindow with protection foils.




The hinges and locking mechanism mounted to the plexi




I have send the door with post to my friend and this are some photos from the Cosmos II case with the new clear side window ,That he send me… becouse I was wondering result..The is result…














I have paid for laser cutting and for 10mm clear plexi only .

Of course a little effort …




A new version of Clear panel made for my friend 16.04.2016





Hi Mate,

Could you please send CorelDraw files? I would really appreciate it. Thanks

I'll have a go at building the design files from scratch. Probably Fusion 360 or OpenSCAD. Can't promise an ETA, but once the design seems solid enough I'll post the files on GitHub.

He comes in occasionally, his last visit here was 14th July, he will get back to people once he visits I am sure.

Thanks for the info. Either way I'll still be putting in some amount effort to create a model that can be manufactured. Arg-ist's sources would just cut some steps out of the process, or at least as an aid in verifying my new design before I spend on manufacturing. Plus if this ends up being 100% original work on my end, I'll have no restrictions on hosting the content wherever I want & under a license of my choosing.
