Laser Cut Enclosure at 32C3

andz and chris007 provide a limited amount of the “Simple laser-cut case” at the rad1o assembly. It is a complete kit, including screws and spacers.
Available shortly after badge release, Price per Kit: 10,- Euro

CAD Data for a rad1o case

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

Height of the case

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!

Simple laser-cut case

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:

  • 2pcs 10cm x 13cm acrylic glass/wood/..
  • 4pcs M3x28mm screw
  • 8pcs M3 screw nut
  • 8pcs M3 nylon screw nut (or any other isolating material - alternatively, isolating washers)

Sligtly extended laser-cut case (SMA connectors)

This case is based on the above case, but has extra material to protect the SMA connectors (if you have those, or plan to add 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.
