1. The Pi-Stack® includes what you see plus internal mounting columns that you cannot see so easily.Erdnuckel01 wrote:Interesting design, I hope you don't mind answering 3 short questions.
1. So is this just a top and bottom plate or is it a whole case ?
2. How is the Pi held at place inside the Pi-Stack® ?
3. Do you ship internationally or only inside the UK and if you ship internationally how much would it cost if you sent it to germany ?
And yes I know that that were 4 questions, just cleverly disguised

Actually, the protected name is Wall-E. They deliberately chose a variation they could protect, and the information doomesday provided is good advice that could save you a lot of trouble (unless you have made it a registered trademark).kdakin wrote:Is "Wallee" a protected name or can anyone use it to place deliberately mischievous remarks about products? Indeed, does the name Wallee reflect a personal inward bias or is it copied from the animated film of the same name?
I will also add that for anyone who has purchased a case for sell whether it be this particular case or another case, I'd love to see consumer reviews on the various cases out there...I'm still waiting on a photo showing the 'internal mounting columns'..
i'll ask again here like I did in the last thread, has anyone here actually got one that can give an independent view on it?
You've got feedback for ten of them on ebay, hardly phenomenal numbers, and that negative feedback (for a 'raspberry pi container') doesn't look too hot either further down the list.kdakin wrote:
Our Ebay feedback more accurately reflects the value of the true product and I can say confidently that our customers do not have any "buyers regret" after they receive their fine quality product.
Here are links to some photos I took of the case. I didn't remove my Pi but did take the top off to get photos of the posts. Bear in mind that I am not a professional photographer and the only camera I had was on my phone.walleee wrote:So are these posts removable? (from the bottom base) i'm guessing so, if there is a spare offered?
I suppose they would really need to be, because if one broke off, and you couldn't remove the small bit left inside, you'd be left with something that wouldn't hold the pi so well...
looking forward to seeing some pictures of these poles.
If you read my response to Wallee below, you will see that the acrylic posts have been superseded by chrome/molybdenum posts. Not because the acrylic ones break, but simply because it makes assembly easier for us and of course they still look great! In the unlikely event that you did have any problem in the future, you can obtain the steel columns from us - as they fit in exactly the same holes in the base.tsedlmeyer wrote: "I have purchased a Pi-Stack and am very happy with it. .... The build quality is excellent and it comes with clear directions for mounting the Pi.....My only reservation at this time is a concern regarding whether the mounting posts will hold up to the stress put on them by repeated removal and insertion of connections to the Pi. No specific reason to think they won't but thought I should mention the one concern I do have"
There were many points in my reply and I am sure would be of interest to forum members. It will be totally unfair if the negative comments of one individual remain on the forum and our legitimate answers are not seen. It is extremely difficult to give answers to people who keep repeating that you have not answered their questions when you clearly have (just look back at the 2 forum threads if you don't believe me and decide whether the questions are mischievous or not). The latest mischief is suggesting that the acrylic columns might break off (without a shred of evidence)! My last post also answers the "might break off" issue raised by one forum member. I will re-submit the last post you deleted without mentioning specific forum members by name if this is more acceptable to you, so that forum members see the wider issue and decide for themselves.abishur wrote:Sorry for deleting the post kdakin, I know you've taken a lot of flack about this. I do allow product criticism (up to a point, I have deleted some comments on this thread for being too hostile) on this board as I feel product criticism leads to superior products, but I draw the line at repeated personal attacks on an individual . Talk about the product all you like, but do not attack one another.
I politely asked the question in the first instance, you didn't oblige with a picture, preferring to write the below,The answers I gave in the deleted posts were in direct response to the numerous unfair attempts by one particular forum user to discredit the Pi-Stack product despite evidence to the contrary.
I don't consider that evidence and infact your avoidance of the (direct) question had me concerned.We do not photograph the internal columns simply because they are actually designed to be as inconspicuous as possible and because we reserve the manufacturers right to make minor changes that do not effect the functioning of the enclosure. Unlike some of the products on the market we do not expect the Raspberry Pi PCB to be compromised by Velcro or other direct contact.
