Re: Raspberry Pi Raq anyone?

<t>My original posting for this thread was more in mind of the hardware aspects, not performance or networking details. I imagine a simple , multifunction plastic tray each Raspi could snap into that even has feet for individual use. And then an 8 or more bay rack to plug them into. Perhaps the rack...

Re: Raspberry Pi Raq anyone?

First thought I had when I saw the Raspberry was 'how many can be stuffed in a small box for clustering?' Anyone else have the same idea?

When will we be able to purchase them by the dozen?

Re: Pico Projector for RPi ?

Yes, that cheap China knockoff is low res. Newer, $300 ones are getting much better. Just a matter of time before they too lower to those prices. Would make micro mobile computing take on a whole new affordable level.

Re: Pico Projector for RPi ?

<t>This would be sweet. No monitor. Just piggy back the tiny Pico onto the Rpi. Dont know how to deal with the Ipod connector, but somewhere, I saw one of these sporting HDMI plug. Tempted to buy, but, who knows if this works or not or is legit given it's origins.<br/> <br/> Mini Portable Multimedia...

Re: I Give Up!!

<t>To speed up assembly production, which is where any lag will be, The RPi should come default without the RCA, Audio and GPIO connectors. Perhaps even some others that are thru-hole. Just let the end user determine which connectors he/she wants and supply them in a bag. Will save alot of time in p...

Re: Mechanical Profile - 3D models

<t>JamesH,<br/> <br/> If you have access to the PCB Layout tool used with Raspberry B, it would be best to export an IDF file of it. DXF at the minimum. Just about every PCB tool has IDF out. IDF would provide the nominal x-y placement coordinates, profile, all holes and part height/bounding geometr...

Re: Mechanical Profile - 3D models

<t>SN: Yes. Those would be mesh only. I only work with Solid models in a parametric environment where all the data and parts are and engineering updates are quick and instantaneous. Surface meshes are not too handy. I have not yet found a suitable Solid to Sketchup export yet. Perhaps someone with t...

Re: Mechanical Profile - 3D models

I added Wavefront.obj and 3D-Studio.3ds files to the Tronetix website. I do not have any way of importing into Sketchup, but, perhaps someone taking the dimension drawing could manually update and also fix the connector and plugin parts.

Re: Mechanical Profile - 3D models

<r>I realized the Sketchup 3D model floating around the web appears to be off 4mm in several locations. Due to no mounting holes provided, mechanical packaing will be a bit rough and 4mm tolerance isn"t too tolerable.<br/> <br/> Using the following "official" dimension drawing, I recreated the model...
