Re: Case Design - Internal Mounting: Raspberry Sandwich!

Wallee, the original pdfcast version was done before I had a Pi to measure - the cutouts don't fit correctly which is why I've updated the design. As pdfcast works for you (and everyone else seems to be fine too), I've uploaded the latest version there: http://pdfcast.org/pdf/raspberry-sandwich-vesa...

Re: Case Design - Internal Mounting: Raspberry Sandwich!

Actually, strike that about the RF - it's just interference with the wifi router which was in between the keyboard and the transmitter! Case cutouts to follow.

Re: Case Design - Internal Mounting: Raspberry Sandwich!

I've put a second version up on wikisend, see if this works: http://wikisend.com/download/879922/PiSandwich.pdf I'll look at putting in some cutout lines for the chips, and a 100x100 VESA option, over the weekend. My main concern at the moment is actually RF interference as my wireless keyboard/trac...

Re: Case Design - Internal Mounting: Raspberry Sandwich!

I'll repost the PDF tonight (fileshare sites are blocked at work for me).
As far as temperatures are concerned, I've not pushed the GPU, but maxing the CPU for an hour gets the Pi warm, and the enclosure not at all - OHP slides have to have some heat tolerance after all!
Cheers,
Alexis

Re: Board stands?

You could use a raspberry sandwich:

with either mounting posts, or just stick the sandwich bottom down!

Re: Case Design - Internal Mounting: Raspberry Sandwich!

Ok, got my Pi at last! I've made a few changes to the dimensions - it fits now. It's pretty robust screwing down the corners, and even fits into the anti-static bag that the Pi was packed in! The best way to get the case on is first over the USB ports, then the composite, the headphone and lastly th...

Re: Securing a Pi in a case

Hi, I'm a little late to the party, but have you considered something like the raspberry sandwich? http://elinux.org/images/0/0c/Raspberry-sandwich-1-0.pdf I'm not sure whether the dimensions are exact as I don't have a Pi yet, but you could experiment with that design and different materials! Regar...

Re: Raspberry PI ARM Clone

<t>Just my tuppence (and I guess slightly off the thread topic, but not the title), but I'd prefer to see an increase in the board flexibility ie. do a real clone using the same chips, but a new board with extra features eg. more I/O, cheapest FPGA onboard to teach electronics as well as computer pr...

Re: Case Design - Internal Mounting: Raspberry Sandwich!

<t>Thanks for the dimensions pygmy_giant! It looks like I'm correct on all the dimensions except the board size itself - I was a bit confused as to the true dimensions before (I think Gert had said the wiki was wrong or something), anyway I'll stretch the distance between the USB/ethernet and the co...

Re: Case Design - Internal Mounting: Raspberry Sandwich!

Hi everyone, I was going to wait until I'd got a Raspberry pi before doing a case design, but then thought that this might be useful to people. As I haven't got a Pi, the dimensions might be off slightly, and I'd appreciate corrections. As far as licencing goes, you are free to what you like with th...
