I received my Raspberry Pi this week and immediately looked for a case. I was drawn to this particular set up as it contains a BIM Board and cables to allow you to play with the Raspberry Pi's I/O Feature.
It would have been great to have a page of instructions with this case.
*** Update, I should have spotted on the bag that contained the perspex sheets the following
Contains full instructions on how to assemble the case :-)
You get two perspex sheets pre-cut, but with a pattern etched on the surface. At first I thought these were break out parts, they are not, they simply show the alignment of the PI to the board.
The four plastic pages/board spacers have a notch cut out on on end. These notches hold the PCB in place and line up nicely.
The largest perspex sheet is the bottom with the raspberry pie SD Card on the right, the USB ports on the left. Insert the two plastic begs and tighten slightly, sliding in the Raspberry pi In and ensuring the notches align with the PCB.
Then insert the remaining two plastic spaces, again with the notch gripping the PCB and tighten the four screws.
The top (Smallest Perspex Part) goes on top and is secured by four screws.
The BIM board has adhesive backing and sticks to the front area of the case.
Four rubber feet are supplied and stick them on the four small screw holes on each corner of the board.
Et Voila, your ready to go!
The kit contains 2 miniature switches, 10 LEDs' variable colours, and 10 connectors that attach nicely on the Raspberry PI's connector block and the BIM Board.
This brings back childhood memories of trying the latest elektor electronics magazines monthly projects on BIM and Vero-Board :-)
All I need to do know is work out how to program the Pi !
The case is sturdy, and in my opinion is worth the spend. But please note, it does not encapsulate the Pi device, so little fingers could touch the remaining circuitry!
Happy Pi'ing... :-)
