The prototype case is on it's way to Chill and I have finally had time to make another one and this time it came out pretty good. See attached pictures :cool:

Gary, what has happened to Acronum?
I am keen to buy one of those USB to serial adapters if it's still possible.
(So I can better monitor my Tristar 60 solar charge controller)
Nothing to do with Raspberry Pi cases I know

We closed it down as now we are both working full time we don't have the spare time, I don't think we have any left but will check. Check your PM

You must have tweaked the tanalising out of that rep-rap.

Awesome Gary67. How long did it take to make?

about 2 hours to print that one, the prototype took 3 hours as it was set to a finer setting but I had problems with it. So I went back to my original settings and it worked just fine

Hey that is cool Gary, thanks for posting the pics.

I have noticed that where the HDMI cable goes it will need a little filling out as the bridging has sagged a little bit

Yeah I noticed that in the image as well. There an easy way to counter that during manufacturing? Or has it sagged post-creation and is easy enough to bend back?

Have to say thats pretty cool to be able to build something like that. Look foward to seeing it in action one of these days - time permitting (something I seem to have trouble finding enough of these days)!!. BTW, how is the pc handling it?

The PC is handling it just fine, it's not an intensive program. One of these days I will get it running from an SD card.

I'm looking into the sagging problem usually if it's not important I just file it off.

Currently have a different design one printing so more pics later once it's finished.

Different design, this one is not so easy to get together initially.

I thought that's why people printed some models with supports?

Supports are really for overhangs, not used for bridging as it would be hard to remove in that situation

Oh I see. I guess I'd know that if I actually had a printer.

Came across this yesterday, you might find it interesting: http://3dtopo.com/lostPLA/

Yes I have heard of people doing that, apparently the clear PLA from Diamond age up in Auckland is good for that as it melts without charring
