It's just a tiny bit loose inside the case (maybe .5mm) guess that allows for some variation in board size.
When will these updated cases be available?modmypi wrote:It is a tolerance gap left for slight variations in PCB sizes. Some of the boards we measured varied as much as 2mm from one end to the other. We thought it better to leave a .5mm edge clearance rather than risking people's boards not fitting in.
Feedback's been really positive so far, so thanks to everyone for supporting us! I think the main criticism highlighted is excessive tolerance in the vertical direction, hence some maraca like qualities on some boards.
We've listened (as we want people to be happy with their cases), and are currently working through this with the addition of a small bump on the internal side of the USB hood. This acts to hold the board in place via a slight pressure on the top of the USB port when the two halves are clipped together.
Feedback is always much appreciated, as it helps us to improve.
Other changes soon to be in effect include GPIO ribbon access via a side window and camera module access.
Sounds good, but I hope the WiFi dongle can be removed or disabled. (And, of course, the USB Hub will have proper power isolation from the Pi itself...)modmypi wrote: We're also working on a case with integrated electronics - USB Hub, wifi dongle, power switch etc. And that should be getting towards prototyping in August.
