Re: Laser Cut RPI case project

<t>hi,<br/> <br/> I've (hopefully) attached a link to a PDF file of a case I've been working on that can be cut out of of A4 sheet  (3mm thick) of perspex or cardboard using a laser cutter. I've called it the flat-pack-pi-case and you're welcome to take the design and modify accordingly. Drawing is ...

Re: Beta Boards mechanical data

Does the Foundation (or someone linked to them) now have access to the mechanical data for the production boards so people can start making cases for their new RPI's with the correct measurements for cut outs etc?

Re: Cases for the Raspberry Pi

Found these on ebay -

Seems the (near) perfect size, and if you could buy them in single amounts, should be cheaper.

Cheers

Re: Custom case designs

<t>@HannsH<br/> <br/> I've had some prices for 3d printing your cases and so far they are in excess of £50 each (asked for quotes from 3d printing services in the UK).

Re: Custom case designs

@HansH

My bad, downloaded the openscad file and exported the two half's as separate .stl files.

Will let you know the price of printing if anyone's interested.

Re: Custom case designs

@HansH

What files do I need to download for the low profile case (I downloaded the raspberrypi_lo.stl file to get a quote for printing and it appeared as one solid case)?

Do you have an .stl file for each half of the case?

Cheers

I use the excellent motion program with a couple of usb webcams, but it can deal with IP cams as well. not sure if there's an ARM version but worth looking into.

Re: 1 PSU to rule them all ?

Hi all,
Found this on amazon.com - 12v power supply with 4 dc plugs

http://www.amazon.com/VideoSec.....f_dp_shvl1

Not sure it would work with the RaspberryPI, but worth a look maybe.

cheers
