Occitan estug derived, in our idiom, on case. This is how the cover or cover that is used for save and protect certain objects.
For instance: “Please give me the guitar case”, “I can’t find the case of my glasses“, “For my birthday, my wife gave me a pen in a wooden case that has my initials engraved on it”.
The cases have different features based on the type of item they should store. Sometimes they are assimilated to boxes, while in other cases they are wrappers. The rigidity and size of the case are directly linked to what it stores.
There are cases of plastic, wood, leather and paperboard, among other materials. Many cases have closing (zipper) and others have buttons or similar mechanisms.
Not only is the structure of the case important to resist shocks or protect the product before the action of multiple external factors: its interior conditioning is also relevant. Depending on how the internal sector of the case is designed, the storage will be immobilized and, in this way, protected against a fall or movement during transfers.
It is generally sought that the internal conditioning the case fits the object that is stored in it. This minimizes its impact against the walls or the edges of the case. This conditioning also favors organization when the case is used to store more than one piece.
The pens or pen; the pens (pens); the clocks; the Rings; the musical instruments; the spectacles (glasses); and knives are some of the items that are usually stored and moved in cases.
The versatility of the cases is not only manifested in the immense variety that exists of them in the market, but also in the fact that many people can make their own using a large number of materials different. It goes without saying that the easiest ones to make at home are the little ones, although the most skillful ones venture to create all kinds of models.
As mentioned in previous paragraphs, one of the functions of the case is to protection of an object during transport, and to comply with it you must have an outer layer that is sufficiently rigid and resistant to the factors that you will encounter in normal situations. In the case of the case for glasses, since it is usually carried in the bag along with many other things, it is usually made of plastic or another hard material, to avoid breaking the lenses caused by a sharp object.
However, there are also glasses cases made of fabric or materials flexible, and this responds to the fact that we do not always carry things in our bag that can damage the crystals, although they can also be used to store them in a pocket, where a hard case would be more uncomfortable to carry.
The case of the guitar case is similar: it is usually very rigid and resistant to shocks and falls, with a cap A very hard exterior and a very soft internal one, so that the instrument is not scratched. On the other hand, there are also flexible cases, ideal for short and low-risk trips, or to not add so much weight to the subject.
Nowadays, thanks to the popularity of 3d printers, many people venture to create their own hard cases, making use of tools of design. One of the great advantages of creations of this type is that they can be shared very easily over the Internet, so that other users not so skilled in this field of computing can print and use them, or make as many modifications as they wish.
