Cases that are big enough for pi and other gear

Wed Aug 03, 2016 2:33 pm

Hi All,

Ive been looking around for casing/enclosures that are big enough to fit a pi along with other gear in (wires, breadboard, hdd etc.) but haven't had much luck. Starts looking into HTPC cases, bespoke enclosures made from wood or tin but there were either expensive and needed to be purchased in bulk :(.

My requirements are pretty basic. cheap, just large enough for peripherals. I will be drilling my own holes to mount extension cables (this is why i was looking to something easy as tin). Dimesions wise, maybe around 100mm(L) x 50mm (H) x 100 mm (D).

If anyone knows of a purchasable enclosure, please let me know. Thanks.

I've had a look at some potting devices and some other enclosures. Seems that they are made from ABS plastics?

Any one had any exprience putting holes through this with cracking it.
