Re: STFM case remake

A "kit" form case would be a much cheaper option yes, but I'm talking of total accurate clone of the case. If people wanted a kit type case, then they could do it themselves. So you want to take a block of "plastic" and CNC it to the exact STFM/STE case specs ? I'm not against it but I think the re...

Re: STFM case remake

@Maeke, yes the diy route is probably the cheapest one. To cut 2 to 3mm acrylic you need a CO2 laser with about 40W of power. Also as we're talking about thin sheet of wood or acrylic, a CNC can also be used to cut the parts, cheaper than a laser cuter and less dangerous (think about fire, laser ref...

Re: STFM case remake

"400x400x40mm" Acrylic ? I can find 508 x 812.8 x 2.4 mm acrylic sheet for $19 .. you don't want 40mm thick acrylic, we're not drilling into it with a CNC to make the case, only cutting the walls of the case to assemble them like the Raspberry Pi case example I pointed to ( https://www.2printbeta.de...

Re: STFM case remake

I agree with Maeke. The main cost is laser cutting is the laser cutter. The material, as aI pointed out above, is fairly cheap. The main hurdle is producing the SVG files for all part. you then need some post for the mother board and floppy, .... This allows one to get a "normal" ST case, or expand ...

Re: STFM case remake

I pointed that out too a while ago (may be not in this thread), but diy laser cut acrylic (or wood, or ...) is cheap. The main cost is the laser cuter. An acrylic sheet of 508 x 812.8 * 2.4 mm is $19 (50.8cm x 81.28cm x 2.4mm) There are a lot of example for these for the Raspberry Pi. Of course for ...

Re: PLCC SOCKETS ARE EVIL

The only one available from mouser is the Preci-dip one... there is probably a reason for this. The one from Farnell are 3M .. 3M is supposed to be a good brand too. It's really weird to see that many issues with these sockets but from your pictures it's clear that the plastic part is going too far ...

Re: "YOU WON'T BELIEVE YOUR EYES!" - Smarter Every Day 142

The P.O.V. effect is well known and has been done with micro-controller for years, decades even. The first time I saw someone doing a hello world with a few LEDs, a motor and PIC or Propeller was around 2004. I found this one with a quick search from 2005 : http://www.electronixandmore.com/projects/...
