Re: Computer Desk

I created a desk with 1.75" thick butcher block and used three of these legs . I put two 72" x 32" butcher block boards together in an L-Shape with a metal bracket and internal bar joining the two blocks together for strength. It's a massive desk that is incredibly strong and heavy. Everything toget...

Re: Circuit swords not booting

I had this same problem but Kite was able to figure it out as a solder issue on the SD card slot. A hotair rework with judicious amounts of flux to allow the reflow (and keep the plastic safe) and both of my 2018 boards boot as expected now.

Re: Aluminum Case

It should be relatively easy to mill it down. Make sure you use kapton tape everywhere.

Re: Aluminum Case

I used a generic battery and velcro and affixed it to the battery door. I'll have to check on the 3d printed battery holder.

Re: Circuit swords not booting

Bump.

I have two 2018 CM3 boards that don't work. I get nothing but a grey screen. The same SD card works in a March 2018 board. I just swamped out the CM3 boards with the older one and it worked (see my build in showoff).

Re: Aluminum Case

I used some leftover MintyPi buttons. I took a 1500 grit sandpaper to the back side of it to remove the lettering and smooth it a bit.

Re: Aluminum Case

IMG_0416.jpg Final picture showing back buttons. This was perhaps the easiest build to put together. Everything just screws together and the only place I put hot-glue was to hold the speaker in place. It looks like there's going to be something to hold the speaker in place, but I didn't receive tha...

I believe he designed it to use Nintendo DS Lite buttons.
You're correct. An oversight on my part. The buttons that come with your kit are almost large enough, but not quite. I did use one for the mode button which is a perfect fit.

Re: Aluminum Case

No need for glue at all. It stays in place quite nicely and was built to accommodate the 320x240 screen. The battery is a different story as there isn't a provision to hold it in place. What I did was put a piece of velco on the battery inside cover and the battery to stop it from moving around. Of ...
