Owning myself a Teenage Engineering Tonic Pocket Operator, I wanted a case which is a homage of the tonic drum computer design but also having his own character in the real world.
A new case for the TE Tonic Pocket Operator
Contrary to the usual edged design of the Pocket Operators, the case uses round corners which are complimented by the oval sequencer buttons. The buttons with the striking colors are in contrast to the case with the decent gray and black tones. The case and buttons are available in different versions.
The buttons as well as the case itself are printed with high quality PLA from Prusa .
The ready 3D printed case for the Teenage Engineering Tonic Pocket Operator includes:
- Top part of the enclosure
- Bottom part of the enclosure
- 4 screws
- 23 buttons (16 translucent hard buttons + 7 hard buttons)
- 4 silicon feeds
- 2 encoder caps
The case provides good protection for the Pocket Operator and gives it a very solid and complete feeling. The silicon feeds ensure that the case is not scratching the table surface and that it's not slipping away while in full action.
