I was tired of having to fiddle with the drawer to replace reagents, and the Trident was too loud at night, so I designed a new housing. It works great. Yes it'll void your warranty.

Nice work!

Really like that you don’t have to worry about crimping the tubing from the reagents!

Could the cube be made smaller or are you restricted by the components?

When I first got my trident second month I removed the cover and have been running it since without cover. This way I can close drawer and stick my fingers inside to move and make sure hoses do not pinch or kink

That's about as small as you can get without cutting anything. I made it so you can just put it back in the old case if you want to.
