Re: Case that fits Adafruit 16x2 LCD .. and preferably more.

They should be on sale @ modmypi within the 3-4 weeks or so - as for price - no idea how much they'll charge at the moment - but not too expensive, and as for postage to Sweden - again I'm not sure. Sorry I couldn't be more informative at this moment. I will have some of the Pibow mods in stock late...

Re: Case that fits Adafruit 16x2 LCD .. and preferably more.

There's just a cut-out for the LCD at the moment, but a protective layer could be added with-out too much problem (just another layer of clear perspex).

As for the rubber buttons, can you provide a link for them please?

Cheers

Re: Case that fits Adafruit 16x2 LCD .. and preferably more.

@ cause4concern Glad you like the design :) 1) The solder points are how they came with my adafruit display, different people may trim them down, but I'm not sure. 2) I don't have any other images at the moment,as for the rainbow colours, they're the original colour scheme the pibow case came in - i...

Re: Case that fits Adafruit 16x2 LCD .. and preferably more.

For anyone with a Pibow case, I've also got a mod that allows you to fit the adafruit LCD display, again this is a design from last year, and once again if there's enough interest I might do a production run of them... There's two different types, one has cut-outs for all the buttons and solder poin...

Custom Case for the Adafruit PiTFT

Hi, As some of you might know I already design and produce the cases for Texy's TFT Touch screen (see http://www.raspberrypi.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=45&t=64993 for some pictures of the black version), and I'm just seeing if there's a need for a similar case for the Adafruit PiTFT (doesn't appear t...

New case for Pi and Picam

Hi All, I've now got a new design that'll keep your Pi and Picam safe in one enclosure. It allows you to route the usb power through the back of the case, and keeps your SD-Card safe from harm's way. I've attached some pics, and as usual if there's enough interest I'll do a small production run. Che...

Re: Case that fits Adafruit 16x2 LCD .. and preferably more.

Hi, I've actually had a case designed for several month's that should fit your requirements (for the adafruit display at least). I'm hoping to have in production over the next few weeks. In the meantime, I've attached (a rather bad image sorry), showing you roughly what it looks like. cheers mrlinux2u

It's just been used to double check measurements so it's had very little wear and is in excellent condition.

Re: Case incorporating AdaFruit 16x2 LCD Plate

@sav25

Yep, sold already :), I'm taking pre-orders for the production run,,,

As for laser cutting services, I have a supplier down south who starts at £20 for a single sheet (gets cheaper the more you buy), I'll check with him if it's OK to pass his details on.
