Re: A basic acrylic enclosure for developers

<t>Can't you just sent it by simple mail, that would save a lot of costs...<br/> <br/> Currently you charge (for europe)  CHF 15,- shipping cost for a item of CHF 8.50 ....<br/> <br/> Disassembled it would just fit in a envelope...<br/> <br/> I was ordering one until I saw the shipping costs....<br/...

Re: Beta Boards mechanical data

ModmyPi also measured his RPI and he says its pcb is  85.0 x 56.17

which sounds a lot lot more confirming Gert's measurements.

Re: STl for printed Case?

Not seen it yet, although modmypi already told some details about the pcb dimensions.

You can take my thingiverse design and in openscad, in the top of the program,

all dimensions are defined, just alter it to the new size (85.0 x 56.2) and you should have a correct fit.

0.17 too wide…. bugger.  I made my cases 85.60 x 56.0

And the connector locations,  are they at the correct locations and the correct dimensions

Re: ModMyPi Raspberry Pi Cases

I only noticed that the bottom of the ethernet connector is gone…

I assume that was on purpose… ?

Ooh and let us know if for the production board you need to make adaptions...

Then I probably have to do them also...

Some more variations, now using a better board design…

In stead of normal feet, I now use feet which fits Lego bricks…

More practical than screw hole, I can screw a small lego plate against a wall and attach/detach the case when I want..
