So here are some more pictures. I got the case from MCM electronics, but this is a pretty popular type of case made by Multicomp available through various distributors. It comes in white, black and transparent.
|Convenient mounting holes in the back|
|GPIO, bottom right, no access from the outside...|
A case like this one would be better suited (3d model on thingiverse for a 3d printer):
In fact I'm going to have somebody print this at the local Hackerspace (Fablocker), where we will be holding a PyHack Workshop using the Raspberry Pi, in exactly one week, November the 10th.
Still, all is not lost with that case, I'll add a slit for a cable, from the hole for the composite video jack. Or just do a cutback at the bottom. It is actually possible to still use a cable without cutting the box in any way. Here is the box assembled without the cable:
And here is the case with the cable. It is a tight fit, plus it wont lay flat.
|It will do for now...|
