I’d like to make a custom case. I can’t find mechanical data for the PCB and it’s interfaces to the Pi and so on. Do you have CAD available anywhere?
Here are the files you need https://storage.googleapis.com/matrix-assets/Matrix_Creator_Mechanical_Files.tar.gz.
Please write us If you have any problem using the files.
Can’t wait to see your case !! Please share here in the community.
You really need a simple mechanical drawing too but that’s ok, I know you have a lot on the ToDo list and I can work it out. But I have another question: The mounting holes look a bit random. I can see the two holes to mount the Pi, then there is one at 12 o’clock and one at 3 o’clock, but then the 4 at the bottom look like they might be intended for something. Can you give me some insight? I don’t want to use a hole that is intended for an accessory to mount to the case.
Hi Jon, you can use the holes at 12, 3 and the three at the bottom. Use M3 nylon spacers and screws.
Share a photo after you finish !
Here are some photos of a case we designed here. If anyone would like I’d be happy to share the design files. Google Album
Wow !!! That design is amazing !! It will be really good for the community if you share it on twitter at https://twitter.com/matrix_creator or any other platform you like.
Tell us if we can help with anything in your project.
This is Amazing!
@philpeterman please share the files
Can you share through github/thingiverse?
No worries I’ll post them tomorrow and put a link here.
Here’s a link to the github repo with the top and bottom halves of the case.
Thanks so much for taking the initiative to create an awesome case for MATRIX Creator. Surely many Creators out there will use it to house their device!
I believe you will need to use M2.5 threaded standoffs and screws. M3 will not fit the Pi.
