Hi,

I'm from Spain, so I can talk with Almudena in spanish. I'm happy with my DM42 case, but if I can help as interpreter just tell me.

Sadly I can't lend her a calculator to make a mockup... now I'm living in France (anyway Spain is not a very bing country, but is not small neither).

Gop.

I would be interested in a bifold wallet style fancy case for my DM42 and DM41x. With a pocket on one side for the calculator and A slot on the other side for a field notes notebook. It would be nice if there was also room to hold a small pen and a few calling cards. :idea:

Any body else interested?
DM41X (#6476), 42 (#458) - HP 17BII, 35(2), 45, HP 27S, 28S, 30B, 41CV, 42S, 48S, 35S, HP10bII+, 12C PLAT
I may have a problem!

Anyone close to Spain able to loan temporarily to the business to do a mockup? They then can show us all the results on this forum.
I guess a dummy with the same dimensions as the calculator would do for mocking up a case, wouldn't it?

I suppose it would are the dimensions below for the DM42 accurate? Any curvature or raised tolerances from a case design standpoint?

Size : 77 mm × 144 mm × 12 mm

In theory. But in practice a real calculator might save the hassle if there are any problems. In theory the dimensions alone are sufficient. But if nobody has a calculator they can lend (which is reasonable), then we might have to make do with the risk.

If not treated too badly, leather features some elasticity.

Four photos of examples for DM42 done this week by Almudena with the dimensions. Thoughts? Other designs and sizes can be customized. She has made a profile for this forum and hopefully can join the thread directly. An Etsy offering will be made soon.
