Yes but you've not got a fixed box size :confused3: This 'neat' business is doing my head in. There's still one too many parts for this volume. I'm trying to avoid getting the input phonos too near any toroids, getting the volume control pot mounted, the shaft in ( from the side ) , making sure there's enough room for the first cap on some tag board between the mains Tx and the choke. if only there'd been a way of somehow modelling the box and all the sizes and shapes of the parts, in 3D, before I started building :!:

If not this time then next time. Sketchup. Be glad to help. I use it to model things like this among other things.

Cheers,
Stephen

You're very kind. Maybe one day the 4P1L>300B amp or a 4P1L>GM70 amp will need a box.

As Stephen says there is sketchup, and if you want something with a bit more power Autodesk's Fusion360 is well worth a look. Its free for non-commercial use and there are a lot of tutorials on youtube for it. Slightly more off topic, but I've been very impressed by the cam functionality that comes with it.

OK , I might have it.
Daddy Bear is in the inside, in the corner - we know that.
Mummy Bear will have to go outside, on the top, just near Black Gatey.
Baby Bear will have to go upright, attached to a bracket from the centre channel-piece.
Meanwhile the knob will come in the side, just near the rect...ifier valves.
Inputs will come into the top plate, straddling the centre-line.

Another alternative is Tinkercad.com which I used. SketchUp looks like it's more accurate, but that's probably just my skills lacking. Tinkercad I found very quick to get going with.
