How important is a case for your Raspberry Pi computer?
In my opinion,
Firstly, the pins, headers and external components of Pi computer looks fragile and easily bent.
Secondly,it looks very easy to accidentally short the Pi GPIO pins and other conductors by (for example) dropping it on a coductive surface, brushing a conductive object against it or dropping a conductive object onto it while it is powered up.
Thirdly, a number of the sockets, the HDMI connector in particular, are quite stiff; anything that makes it easier to grip the board edges or otherwise aid plugging/unplugging cables without exposing fragile connectors to undue forces therefore helps.
In September, Geekworm released this high quality CNC case for your raspberry pI mini pc.
It has the below features:
1. CNC precision manufacturing, sandblast anodic oxidation craft process
2. Ultra-thin design, only 14mm thick, highly portable.
3. Perfect support 40 pin GPIO Ribbon Cable
4. It has been tested that the aluminum case does not affect the WiFi and Bluetooth function of your Raspberry Pi.
5. Passive cooling architecture design, the aluminum alloy case have good heat dissipation, support CPU and memory heat sink.
There is also provide two thermal tape for you to fit your Pi 3B+ or Pi 3B board.
Some raspberry pi fans ask this question:
Will Wi-Fi and Bluetooth still work well with all that metal around the raspberry pi pcb?
The answer is no, as we use acrylic side plate which will not affect WIFI and Bluetooth signal of your Raspberry Pi, please refer to the below picture.
After install the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Plus or Raspberry Pi 3 Model B into this beautiful Ultra-Thin Aluminum Alloy Metal CNC Case, you can still add other raspberry pi HAT size derivative board or extenstion board module or connect the Raspberry pi 3 40 Pin Flat Ribbon Cable GPIO Cable outside the case according to the GPIO pin of your raspberry pi board.
We will show some photos about how does the extension board or Ribbon Cable connected outside the case.
You can connect the raspberry pi 40 pin GPIO ribbon cable like this:
You can install the raspberry pi hifi dac audio card with HAT size on it, like:
Raspberry Pi PCM5122 I2S HIFI DIGI DAC+ Audio Sound Card
Raspberry Pi PCM5122 HIFI Audio DAC Expansion Board
Raspberry Pi DAC II ES9018K2M HIFI 32bit DSD/APE/FLAC/WAV Sound Card
Raspberry Pi Audio Amplifier HIFI AMP Expansion Board
Of course, you can also install the raspberry pi 3.5 inch screen above the cnc case according to the GPIO Pin of raspberry pi.
In the below photo, we install this Raspberry Pi 3.5 inch 60+FPS High-Speed 800x480 HD TFT LCD Display w/ IR .
What do you think about this 2018 new CNC raspberry pi aluminum alloy case?
