Re: Pi Case

Yep, 1mm walls. I did have 2mm walls but as you say the price was quite a bit higher.

Re: Pi Case

Well I have finally bitten the bullet and I have ordered one of the cases. Shapeways have a 10-14 lead time so I am hoping to get my case back in a week of so. I will report back when I finally do. In the meantime if you want to also give on the cases a whirl then please visit my shapeways shop. htt...

Re: Pi Case

How good is shapeways? What kind of quality would you get for a case like this? That is what I need to find out next. From what I have seen, 3D printing is pretty good but it is obviously not as good as if the object had been injection moulded. I will report back when I get one printed. As for the ...

Re: Pi Case

Well I will be getting my first case printed in a week or so. Once I've done that I will iron out any problems with it. I will then have them for sale on Shapeways for anyone who wants to buy. I will certainly take into account the comments about the open vents. I'd cut the holes to reduce the price...

Pi Case

I have been tinkering with a design for a Pi Case. I think that I am almost there and just wondered what people thought. I am very open to design ideas so if you have some bright ideas then please let me know.
