Electronic project

Case for Raspberry and 7'' touchscreen


In a project I'm working on, I'm using a Raspberry, a 7'' touchscreen and a Piface. The electronic de

vices can be fixed on the back of the touchscreen, however, it is not well protected. I did not find any case for

protecting all the electronic mentioned above. That's why I made one.

The case is made of three elements:

Beaglebone 7'' touch screen case

The Beaglebone 7'' touch screen is a great tool. As I did not find any case that would suit my needs, I build one.

The case completely covers the screen and the beaglebone, but all connectors are reachable. It is also possible to add extension if extension boards are added to the beaglebone.

The STL files for printing this case are included below.

The  project is not completely finished and I will add the different files and explanation as soon as I will be finished them.

The first available file is the border of the screen.

Indexing tool for threading with Mach3 on Sherline lathe

This project is still a work in progress:

  • Wheel is finished
  • Support is finished
  • Power supply is being tested
  • Sensor is being tested
  • Mach3 configuration is being tested

Machining thread with a Sherline lathe and Mach3 require measuring the angle position of the axis.The angular position sensor is constituted by a perforated disk and an optical beam. Mach3 synchronize the rotation speed and the Z axis to machine threads.
