Re: Case incorporating AdaFruit 16x2 LCD Plate

@sav25

Yep, sold already :), I'm taking pre-orders for the production run,,,

As for laser cutting services, I have a supplier down south who starts at £20 for a single sheet (gets cheaper the more you buy), I'll check with him if it's OK to pass his details on.

Cheers

Custom case for AdaFruit 16x2 LCD Display

I'm now taking pre-orders for my custom case for the AdaFruit 16x2 LCD display, this case is based on the very popular case I designed for texy and his 2.8" TFT display, and is made from the same quality laser cut perspex. The Case will cost £10 plus p & p (£3.50 to anywhere in the UK,£4.00 for euro...

Pibow SD-Card protector

Just got my 1st test sample of a Pibow case mod (replacement bottom layer and cover piece) that allows you to keep your SD-Card's safe from harm's way without having to resort to a micro-sd card adaptor. There's easy access to insert and remove the sd-cards and it also stops you knocking the micro-u...

Re: Case incorporating AdaFruit 16x2 LCD Plate

Here we go (finally) :) Shots of the ada-pi case and the Pibow mod (note I need another layer for the pibow version, saying that having a gap will aid in cooling the Pi). The ada-pi case will need metal supports (can't find plastic spacers long enough, and the metal supports add strength to the desi...

Re: Case incorporating AdaFruit 16x2 LCD Plate

I'm also toying with the idea of making this case compatible with existing Pibow cases The base will act as a replacement bottom layer for the Pibow, you then use the 1st 3 layers of the Pibow case to secure the RPi and then place the top layer on (the layer with the LCD access). More to follow if I...

Re: Case incorporating AdaFruit 16x2 LCD Plate

If there was sufficient interest, then maybe yes I could - but I'd need to get hold of approriate switches etc to make the holes the correct size, and I'd need at least 10 people interested in such a case to make it worth my while. However, I'll keep it in mind and see how it goes :) Cheers mrlinux2...

Re: Stackable Cases

Just got my 1st multi-pi hybrid back, this now allows you to stack Pibow cases (acts as a replace bottom layer) as well as bare Raspberry Pi motherboards, there's also an option to stack modmypi cases as well.

Should be going on sale soon, in the mean time enjoy the pics..

There's a good chance I'll be doing a small production run (10 pibow add-on kits) in the next few weeks assuming there's enough interest, if you'd like to PM me and I'll add you to the list of potential customers.
