look at you with your see-through case, being all fancy like

It helps to see where the parts are gonna set. very helpful in prototyping.

Another 4 or 5 years and the first one will be ready. Ya lazy fucker.

Also, the dremal is OK for rough. The final product I will cut farther away and sand/file by hand to ensure a clean finish...

But after the first one they can be built at a much faster rate....

the first one always takes the longest to make.

received. and i know you're prototyping right now, but the roughness of your cuts worries me a bit....
2 years ago

twss

the roughness is not going to cut it on the final builds.... I have already decided to do those mods by hand. Much more control over the plastic...

where are we on screen protection? wermy left his unprotected, but a nice flush scratch resistent polycarbonate layer would be pretty cool imho

shhhh...

I agree.... I haven't look into as of yet but it should be pretty easy to sandwich a screen in between the LCD and case and not be too obtrusive.

i was more thinking of a ridged bezel and a screen glued on, og gameboy style... thoughts?
2 years ago
I'll have to look at that. The way it's modded now the 'lip' it could rest on gets removed. Let me give it some thought. Glued on the front would look the best.
2 years ago
could be tricky with the larger screen
2 years ago
I was just going to say using a smaller screen.... 2.5 or 3 inch would work a lot better for a front bezel.... the 3.5 barely fits as it is as is still covered slightly by the corner
2 years ago
there was something on the sudo forums on this, gotta check that out, think someones even selling screens iirc
2 years ago
I'll take a look... I haven't been on there for a couple weeks...
