Re: Where do you get your case made?

Another option buy a 3D printer.... ;)
The Makibox will be soon be out, $ 350,- including shipping....

I would say just look around for any case that suits you, and then perhaps only use some custom pcb holders to hold the RPi on its place.

You can just edit it with Notepad // Define Raspberry Pi pcb dimensions in mm inside_l = 86.0; //85.00 is largest length reported, so a bit room on ...

Yep, but like I said, people (like me) are going to want some very custom cases beyond the basic "this holds the pi" shape. ;-) ok, now it gets interesting... what kind of 'very custom case' you want to do... ????

@HansH, I'm sorry, I don't quite understand what you are saying will be a problem. I mean that usb connector really sticks out, so if you turn the frontend , that usb hole should be extra extra wide..

Re: Running a light web server with php on the Pi

I was more thinking of thttpd and sqlite (both very light)
It should not make any difference for development what is behind it...
But I usually use perl instead of php with html::templates and dbi as database abstraction..

Re: Securing a Pi in a case

depends a bit on what kind of material you are using. I clamb my RPi board to the bottom case using 4 small notches above the board and the board is underneath supported. That way you can hold it upside down. The pcb board itself is 1.6 mm thick, but I kept 1.7mm room between the support and the not...

If it is just the usb, just make a hole for the usb connector, should not be that hard.

Re: Minecraft

Well I never played minecraft, but my son did, so he tried it out, worked ok
Performance was fine, first startup took a while, but after that it behaved well enough.

I used raspbian as OS, as a console based server (so no X)

Re: Pi case

download netfabb and load your stl file in it and let it check your stl file If it finds flaws it can correct them also. You need to keep in mind that everything should be connected. Sometimes multipart in 1 stl file are not accepted. Also remember that the RPi dimensions are very small, so those li...

Re: "official" case compatibility

Unless there are pcb changes which alters the connector locations, I don't see a reason why a future case should not fit the current RPi's. I think it will take a month or 2 before there will be an official RPi case. Just wait and see if it fits your needs. Probably soon there will be some moulded c...
