Today I received my Piface PCB and I am making a new box for this new union.
It is a first test, not the final, because I did have the CASE before the new PCB physically and I must set some measures of the windows to make it look better
and any piece cause the buttons to access from outside the box. :mrgreen:

The overall dimensions are

These days, I finish the details and I will have ready for sale on eBay and Amazon, if anyone is interested in them. ;)

And more resistant to shocks.
Less electrostatic charge.
Since the grain is always different in some way, each case is unique.
100% biodegradables.

I made a new piece for the bottom of the case.
Now the cases is adapted for VESA Mounting Interface Standard (MIS) or colloquially as VESA mount.

VESA MIS-D 100mm x 100mm or 75mm x 75mm

Now we just put the M4 screws and voila! ;)

Hi :!:

I designed a new enclosure model adapted to the new versions of boards
Raspberry Pi 2 and PiFace Digital 2.

Birch ply is made from laminations of birch veneer. It is light but strong, among the strongest and most dimensionally-stable plywoods. :mrgreen:

Made of birch plywood this case keeps the Pi secure, has a hinged top for connector access, and even has little feet cut into the sides so that it stands up above your desk.

You can use all of the connectors on the edges of the Pi: HDMI, Audio/Video, microSD slot, micro USB power, Ethernet and the 4 USB ports.
There's also a cut out to allow a 40-pin IDC cable to the GPIO breakout pins on the Pi and pass it though the case and 2 rectangular openings for PiFACE board ports.
For more advanced hacking, the enclosure is designed so that you can lift or remove the top piece and plug any sort of cables you wish into the breakouts in the middle. :ugeek:


The case is airy enough that no additional vents or cooling is required - we tested the enclosed Pi over a 24 hour period at full load with no significant increase in temperature.

Sales on ETSY and eBay sites... ;)
