Re: Bezel/Frame for HD44780 2x16 LCD

Looks good! I'd say from a design point of view, above it, but then from a space point of view, people may argue around it... Hi Omega, Glad you like it :) I think it looks better sitting on-top as it gives more room to wire things up behind then 'scenes' as it were. If you'd like to, you can buy t...

Re: Bezel/Frame for HD44780 2x16 LCD

Got my 1st test samples back today :) I've attached some quick pics to show you what it looks like - as you may notice the bezel sits about the LCD by about 1mm, this can be reduced so it sits just above the LCD. Quick question, since I've never designed a bezel before, is it better if it sits above...

Re: 2.8" TFT + Touch Shield Board

Looks good. I guess with the camera mount I can use any size spacers to make it all a little bit smaller, depth-wise. But looks good. Only just got myself a new tripod so I might have to get both. Rough prices? Hi Aikidokajeff, Glad you like the tripod kit :) Yep, you can use any size m4 spacers (I...

Re: 2.8" TFT + Touch Shield Board

I've now got my final test samples back for the tripod/camera mounting kit for the TFT Shield case. I've attached some pics showing them in all their glory,as you can see the front camera holder keeps the camera module inside the footprint of the case and keeps the camera safe from harm's way. The t...

Re: Camera module case

Yet another camera holder, this one's got an adjustable arm and fits to any perspex case that uses M4 stand-offs (my multi-pi for example). It's lets you pan the camera left and right and it's got about 160 degrees of movement (depends which side you place it and how long your camera module cable is...

Re: Bezel/Frame for HD44780 2x16 LCD

Thank you! I can't believe I can't find any cheaper than the one above (which costs considerably more than the screen itself!) I look forward to hearing/seeing your results. Thanks. Yep, I was gob smacked at the prices for such a small thing, I'm hoping to get my 1st test samples next week and I'm ...

Re: 2.8" TFT + Touch Shield Board

Just for all those lucky people with Texy's excellent TFT screen and those really lucky people who brought one of the matching cases ;), here's the 1st look at the tripod mounting system that's maybe on it's way. It'll let you mount the case/screen using a standard 1/4" tripod hole, and there's a at...

Re: Wanted: RPI cable strain release case

@bloomberg Glad you like the VESA-Pi, I've also got a case that blocks the sd-card and micro-usb inside the confines of the case and as mentioned I could modify the VESA-Pi to suit your requirements (wouldn't take much). You could also use a micro-usb extension cable - route that to the bottom of th...

Re: Wanted: RPI cable strain release case

I've got the VESA-Pi case going on sale at modmypi in the next few weeks, although it doesn't have a cable strain, it does protect the sd-card from damage - see the attached pics and see what you think. As you can see the HDMI port points down so not to place too much strain on it. If necessary I ca...
