Punnet for B+

Hi,

I've just ordered the B+ and since I'm a big fan of DIY I would like to know if someone already did the schematics to adapt the punnet box to the new B+?

I would love to do something similar with thin plywood, since I don't have a cnc the design must be very simple.

If no one as done this I will do it as soon as I get the board.

Thanks everyone,

L. Pinho

Hopefully my B+ will of been delivered today, so if I have some time tonight I'll have a go at creating a template. :-)

Thanks for the reply (didn't get an e-mail warning about your reply), I'm still waiting for mine, it will take at least one more week.

Will you publish that template? Please let me know when you do.

Thank you so much,

L. Pinho

Hi both,

Just joined as a brand newbie with my first b+ and am looking for a punnet template too. Did you happen to create or find one yet?

Thanks!

Hi Prune,

still haven't received my B+ :(

Hope to get it this week, but I'm not sure of that either...

Thanks for your interest, as soon as I do something, I'll post it here,

Thanks again,

L. Pinho

I've just made a punnet from your template, it fits the b+ pretty well. Thanks!

Cheers, I think the 4.5mm jack may be a little tight but its located ok, I think I'd add some support around the lid next time, allow it to close a little more securely.

The 4.5mm jack is going to be a bit of a tight fit in a 3.5mm socket on your RPi. You may need to turn it down to size on your lathe.

I was bored so I took it upon myself to make one.

Here is the pdf: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4bby8 ... sp=sharing

Here is the CAD file used to make it: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4bby8 ... sp=sharing

The Ethernet and USB ports stick out in my version. The template is of the inside of the case, so you would fold everything up. When printing the PDF, be sure to select "actual size" from the print menu. If you leave the default "fit" option, your case will be too small.

Enjoy!

I've received mine yesterday, I will print all your plans and make a trial run :)

Could you share what material you are using? Just plain paper? Or something harder?

Thanks for all the replies

Could you mirror image the template, it would be nice to hide the lines.

The lines ARE hidden in the template. you would fold inwards on the dashed lines and the lines would be on the inside of the case

I think your printer settings are different because I had to flip the file to make it correctly.

Just look at the file and imagine folding it, it needs flipping.
