Raspberry Pi sandwich plate inspired by Sick of Beige

Posted on Thursday, January 10th, 2013 in dev boards by DP


Boisblas tweeted a picture of his Raspberry Pi setup, inspired by our Sick of Beige case. The Pi is mounted on a plastic plate with hex standoffs. Like our cases it’s not fully enclosed, but it does provide some protection from those pesky shorts when the board is placed on conductive materials.

    Can anyone tell how the raspberrypi is mounted/supported?

    The earlier model didn’t have mounting holes, so the answer to your question is “Very carefully” !

    The current model (not made by E14, just sold by them and others) does have two mounting holes, they just aren’t on the corners.
    If you have the earlier model you should be able to use a sandwich type arrangement with some insulated materials on some edge of the board to clamp it in a couple of places, though I don’t have one, so can’t tell you where. There are tons of professional cases for them too, though I think most are for the newer model.
    If you can’t sort something, then your best bet would be to hit the Ras Pi forums, as there will be plenty of people who’ve been there and done that.
