Re: 3D printed alpha Raspberry Pi case

<t>I like the look of the case, 3D printing has come a long way.<br/> <br/> Hows this for a creative concept, maybe a few months after the release we have a case competition, with a few basic criteria: compact design and must use cheap materials.<br/> <br/> I say anything that encourages people to t...

Re: Early Adopters?

<t>ah I see, interesting concept. The businessman speaking in me again I personally would keep putting them on ebay till the price drops down to a point where on average they are going for double the normal price and then maybe introduce the buy one give one idea after that for another batch. Depend...

Re: Early Adopters?

<t>sorry I am unsure what you mean by "buy-one-give-one".<br/> <br/> I didn't think of the scalpers thing, but a valid point. Putting them on ebay yourself to me sounds like a brilliant idea, the people who really want them can pay the extra and give the company a good boost.<br/> <br/> I really lik...

Re: Physical design

<t>Indeed it does, looking at Tide's enclousure sure it looks good but a lot of that space would no longer be needed. Having 1W of power usage means only a phone charger type plugpack would be needed and if necessary the shell could come off a USB hub.<br/> <br/> I personally like the challenge of m...

Re: Early Adopters?

<t>on a bit of a different note why not make a pre-release for some boards at a price premium. Now I understand it costs lots of money and time for this project so it could be a way to offset it a little. If people are so keen then I am sure they would be prepared to pay.<br/> <br/> Me being the bui...

Re: Physical design

<t>Tide: assuming a power extension for the main supply you only need two sides, stick it into the corner of your box and your all set. This will let you run the USB output to a hub and have the 4 outputs on the case.<br/> <br/> Keep in mind if this takes off (I hope so) then the availablity of new ...

Re: Physical design

<t>I really sympathize with you guys, everyone on here is interested in a cheap micro board but if everything was added that everyone wanted it would be quadrupple the price and size. Then you virtually have the mainboard out of a netbook. As for me personally I want USB, TV out and some mounting pr...

Re: Physical design

<t>now back to board mounting, will the board have through holes?<br/> <br/> The reason I ask is I have an idea that will encourage people to make their own housings up. My concept is that with the board in it's box when delivered is a dimention sheet that shows the position with (X/Y) axis of the m...

Re: Physical design

ah I see, so two construction processes instead of two.

Also sorry if I missed it but what mounting provisions will this board have? mounting holes?

Re: Physical design

<t>this is probably stating the obvious but a simple solution to me for the socket problem is have two versions of the B type.<br/> <br/> All the second version would be is the sockets are not soldered on, and instead thrown into the box that it's delivered with. Then people can just solder whatever...
