All money raised over these three auctions will be going straight to the Raspberry Pi Foundation

If your interested, you can check out the auction HERE.

It's a nice opportunity to get a pretty unique case for you Raspberry Pi!

You should have received an order confirmation and an email updating you on our progress? If you haven't received either, PM me your email address and I'll check it out for you.

Basically we are still waiting on injection moulding tooling to be manufactured, which is unfortunately quite a lengthy process. We are expecting tooling to be completed between the 24th and 26th May, which subsequently means that manufacture and hence distribution should start very soon after that! Fingers crossed we don't have any issues with the first prototype batch.

The wait is very frustrating for us and everyone waiting, so my apologies.

Somewhere I read, that mass production will start on June 15 - so the first cases should be delivered in late June I think

Cheers

Correct, we're starting production on the 15th June! Apologies for the delay, but we're getting there (at last :roll: ).

Hey everyone,

Got a quick update with some pictures of the injection moulding mould and the T1 sample run. Looking to start distribution at the start of next week and clear our pre-orders by the end of the month :)

Injection Mould Tooling. That's a lot of hardened steel, good for around 100,000 units :o

T1 Samples to check fit and function. Need to iron out a couple of minor issues and add the external finish:

I was able to try a T1 sample. It makes a good impression already, can't wait for the final case :-).

I'm waiting for my pre-order, but perhaps since I live in the US, it will be next year when I get it...

Bit of a pity about the whitish line above the power symbol, I wonder will that remain in further batches or will QC improve....

We're currently working through our pre-orders as fast as possible, got a massive batch going out on Monday, so a lot more people should have them during next week.

Here's a few more pic's just for you guys:

Image Image Image Image Image

With regards to that 'line' next to the power symbol, it is a minor flow pattern due to a change in height of the internals of the case. This causes a slight change in texture reflectivity which is highlighted in some pictures. We'll call it the first edition marking :D

Doesn't look quite so bad in some of the latest pictures actually, and otherwise looks great, fair play. ;)

Received my case today, battered and torn envelope but case undamaged. Ordered and paid 17 May but only acknowledged on 6 June.

Pi installed, put in final location, and all re-connected in under 5 minutes. Fits like a glove, no problems although my Maplin Mini to Micro USB adapter is a very, very tight fit in the power slot.

Good value for money

9/10 for case, but ModMyPi folks, when you have caught up put a little polish on your customer service.

Hi

Quick update.

Mine arrived today as I was returning back to work after lunchtime so haven't yet had chance to try it out but it looks very, very nice.
