This is an old revision of the document!
syso will be only there at saturday and sunday, but he will be bringing (High-Resolution, pretty) Laser Cut Enclosures (different styles) to the Camp. If you want to get one, please send an e-mail to cccamp-rad1o-cases (at) ext.no-route.org
Note: this is not an official rad1o enclosure. syso is just volunteering to provide them.
If you want to build your own case for the rad1o, we added DXF files to github.
rad1o_dimension.dxf is just the PCB outline with holes.
rad1o_with_parts.dxf is PCB, display, joystick and factory mounted connectors.
You can also easily make your own dxf files using Eagle, just activate your desired layers and run the dxf.ulp
There were some questions about the height, normally there are no parts on the backside, only if you need JTAG connections or a few CPLD extension lines connects here. If you solder the SMA connectors, you need about 1,5 mm here.
If you will place the battery on the back, you need about 5 mm here and some space for the cable on the left. On the front you need a minimum height of 5 mm for the audio connector and a hole for display and joystick.
Hint: The pictures currently show the first prototype - the current Github contains the correct data for the camp edition.
Happy building or knitting!
Here you can find a simple design for a laser-cut case. You can use acrylic glass or even wood for this. It offers basic protection and some mounting for a lanyard or clip. Feel free to add custom engraving to find your rad1o again when giving it out of hand. Parts needed:
This case is based on the above case, but has extra material to protect the SMA connectors (if you have those, or plan to ad them). Download the SVG files here: rad1o-case-sma-connector.tar.gz
The svg files do not include the personalised cutting and engraving as seen in the photos, but you can always add personalisation yourself. The font I used is Potama.
