Updated Enclosure for Smart Nixie Tubes

Posted by Tyler Nehowig (Creator)

Hi Backers,

I wanted to send out one last reminder that there are both wood and acrylic enclosures available for up to ten Smart Nixie Tubes!  I've updated the design of the enclosure to be sleeker and easier to assemble.  Check out the example below; the first one is Amber Bamboo (which can be stained to your liking) and the second one is Medium Blue Tint Acrylic.  All of the pieces are laser cut and all of the hardware is included.  If you're interested in getting an enclosure for your Smart Nixie Tube(s), all you have to do is add the corresponding amount below to your pledge and I will get the material and color you want at the end of the funding campaign!  The available colors can be found HERE (you can pick any color of 3mm acrylic or 2.7mm Amber or Blonde Bamboo).

Enclosure for 1 Smart Nixie Tube: $20  

Enclosure for 2 Smart Nixie Tube: $20  

Enclosure for 3 Smart Nixie Tube: $30  

Enclosure for 4 Smart Nixie Tube: $30

Enclosure for 5 Smart Nixie Tube: $40

Enclosure for 6 Smart Nixie Tube: $40  

Enclosure for 7 Smart Nixie Tube: $50  

Enclosure for 8 Smart Nixie Tube: $50  

Enclosure for 9 Smart Nixie Tube: $60  

Enclosure for 10 Smart Nixie Tube: $60

We're coming down to the finish line of the funding campaign and I can't wait to start ordering PCBs, components, and enclosures!  The response to the project has exceeded my expectations and I can't thank you all enough for supporting the project.  I will work my hardest to produce the highest quality product for each and every one of you.

As always, if you have any questions regarding the Smart Nixie Tubes or the enclosures -- feel free to message me or leave a comment and I will be more than happy to help!

      Hi Ron,

      Thanks for the compliment -- I'm confident you will like how the bamboo looks in contrast to the Nixie Tubes! I can't thank all of the backers enough and I'm going to be working my hardest in the next month to get the Smart Nixie Tubes out into the world. I can't wait to see what you guys and gals come up with.

      I was planning on making my own enclosure, but the bamboo looks great. I just added the extra to my pledge. Thanks for offering this to us.

      Congrats on the success of the project. I hope to see more from you.

      Hi Hyosube,

      Thank you for increasing your pledge for the enclosure! As soon as the funding period is over, I will send out a survey to all backers to verify exactly what they want. In the survey, you can specify the material and color of enclosure you want, and then I will have it custom made based on your choice.

      Hi Elijah,

      I will try to make a mock up of the enclosure with multiple Nixie Tubes. You can also download the Laser Cut Enclosure file from the Downloads section to see the design for 1 to 10 Smart Nixie Tubes.

      Hi. I just added the amount for the enclosure to my pledge. How can I tell you which enclosure I want? Am I asked about that when this campaign ends? Thanks.

      Could you please post a picture or mock up of what the enclosure will look like with multiple Nixie Tubes?
