      Hi Mat, anodizing is only black at the moment, though custom order can be colored in any color you like. Also cases can be laser engraved. For more details check your email.

    Hi Saulius

    Obviously you have already sold all v2 revision enclosures? I am still interested to buy one. Is it possible?

    Is it compatible with Rpi 2?

    • Saulius Lukšė
      2015-02-04 12:45

      Hi, it should be. I will receive RPI 2 in a few days and post a note about it.

    Hi Saulius!
    May I ask when it will again be available on eBay to purchase? Also, has anything changed in design of new production to match repositioned IC?
    Thanks in advance.

    • Saulius Lukšė
      2015-03-09 19:12

      Hi Anthan, I expect to have new cases in a month. Nothing has been changed in this batch – old heat-sink covers RPI2 CPU pretty decently.

    hi there,

    do you still have any raspberry Pi B+ cases left? we could need a large order very soon

    thank you

    Any news regarding the new batch availability?

    Saulius,
    I do not see an access slot in case for the VESA connector. Is that a custom modification?

    • Saulius Lukšė
      2015-09-04 06:18

      Hi Phil, separate adapter has to be made to fit VESA mount. It’s pretty simple – let me know if you are interested.

    Saulius,
    I do not see an access slot in case for the DSI display connector. Is that a custom modification?

    • Saulius Lukšė
      2015-09-04 06:19

      Hi Phil, DSI is unused in RPI, so it’s kind of useless making a slot. But if you need one, you can use large slot at the side of case. Or if having DSI slot in the right spot is crucial for your application let me know – there is no problem making it in new revision.

        Looking forward on eBay.

    Hi Saulius,

    I really like the Raspberry Pi enclosure! Can you provide more information about the customizations mentioned in the post? I am looking for an enclosure that would have an option for a DB-9 connector. Thank you for your time.

    Brice

    Hi,

    I just received the enclosure I ordered. It’s incredible and I intend to order a few more in the future. I too would be interested in the information that Brice asked for above, as I’m also looking at a DB-9 connector.

    The only downside I’ve found is that Switzerland is not part of the EU and I get hit with import taxes, which is never fun.

    Are there any options for minimizing such taxes, such as having you (the seller) deduct EU taxes and add Swiss taxes? (Naturally I, the buyer, would pay such taxes.) I know that other shops like Amazon can do this, but I have no idea as to the amount of administrative work required. Maybe distribute it through Amazon’s “Fulfilled by Amazon” service (you send it a bunch to their warehouse, they handle the inventory and shipping)?

    I ask because I know several people outside of the EU (in the US, in particular) who would be interested in buying several cases but the import taxes and shipping can be quite high.

    Thanks!
    -Pete

      2015-10-01 17:14

      Hi Pete, thank you for your thoughts. Unfortunately listing things on Amazon is complicated and costly, but maybe I missed something. Will double check and drop you a note to your email.

    Hi Saulius,

    I just received the enclosure, it is definitely a piece of art! Well done indeed.
    Are the thermal pads required for a RPi B+? I do not intend to overclock it, but I do intend to use a small shield and the thermal would be in the way. Appreciate your thoughts.

    Best regards,
    Rob

    • Saulius Lukšė
      2015-10-23 17:55

      Hi Rob,

      Glad to hear you liked it! Thermal pads are optional and with this massive aluminum case it will stay pretty cool even if you overclock it.

    Hello,

    I was just curious as to whether or not you have a variant of the case that would accommodate a DAC such as the HiFiBerry Pro.

    Thanks for your time,

    Hello, are You planning to modify enclosure to be fully suitable for RPi 3? I mean WiFi issue.
    Regards!
    Dimitar

    • Saulius Lukšė
      2016-05-17 09:50

      Hi Dimitar, making it to be compatible with internal wifi means some part has to be made of plastic this complicates design and increases price. So for now I have no plans making it fully internal WiFi friendly.

      Also if you need to use WiFi at close range it works without any modifications.

    Hello Saulius! :)

    I was looking for an elegant case for my RPi3, in order to utilise it as a networked media player. I was disappointed when I found out in the drawings that there is a long slot with 4 holes for screws on the front side (opposite of the side that the HDMI port is located). Whilst this is useful for makers for utilising the GPIO, it will look plain ugly next to my TV set, so it’s a no-no for me.

    Are there any plans to produce in the foreseeable future a more media-oriented, stylish case without this feature? Probably not, I guess, but it is better to ask than presume and look away.

    Otherwise it’s probably the best looking case I’ve come across. Congrats for this :)

    • Saulius Lukšė
      2016-10-01 15:58

      Hello Spyros,

      Actually new version (due to be released next week) has no slot and is slimmer. Will let you know as soon as receive new shipment.


      BR,

    Hi Saulius

    I love the look of this case. Nice Job!

    Very interested to see the new version you mentioned above too.

    Could you email me please so that I can share some plans with you about a project I am starting. I may have a requirement for lots of these cases from you.

    Thanks and best regards

    Sveiki,
    Noriu paklausti, nedarant RPi3 dėžutes modifikacijų, kiek stipriai realiai yra slopinamas WiFi signalas? Turiu vieną netipinį projektą kur RPi veikia kaip WiFi AP prie kurio jungiasi plančetinis kompiuteris. Atstumas tarp įrenginių max 2m.
    Dėkoju už atsakymą,
    Saulius

    • Saulius Lukšė
      2017-06-23 13:26

      Sveiki, Sauliau,

      WiFi signalas žinoma slopinamas, bet planšetinis kompoiteris už 2metrų tikrai veiks.


      Saulius
