Acrylic Cases
« on: 14:47, 23 November 15 »
This site makes and sells acrylic cases for several C64 modules   (I discovered them while trying to find a decent case for TFCIII+)

Do you think some of them are compatible sizewise with some our own hardware for CPC?

The link got swallowed by the Forums "We know better" script. Put it in quotations: "http\\...." to get around this.

Really nice results :) I Would really like to see a "custom case" for CPC :)

They're pretty cool. You could probably make one yourself to the CPC cartridge dimensions, but the PCBs would need mounting holes in the corners to do it like they do.

P.s.: Was the link there all along and I was too stupid to see it? :)

No, damn link kept disappearing whatever I do, (even with the quotes) so I had to link the text via toolbar icon.

Just a thought but if external expansion designers could make their boards fit inside a Raspberry Pi case, we could have extremely cheap cases available. Even good quality cases are only a couple of pounds each.


For example the Multiface expansion I have almost but not quite fits inside a Pi case.

Yeah, but you're left with holes all over the place that you don't need. There are very cheap plastic boxes available if it doesn't need to match an exact dimension (such as cartridges). I usually plan my projects for a particular / cheaply available case.

It was already the case for the multiface II and the Hackit.
They just put stickers on the holes  :D
