LCD button shield button overlay

by jeffjohnvol on Wed Mar 13, 2013 10:19 am

I'm looking at the http://www.adafruit.com/products/772 and wondering how to make a case for this puppy.

The case I can make with my hackerpace's laser cutter, but what do I do for the buttons? I know other panels that you find commercially will have a some rubber buttons or bendable plastic that pushes the microswitches, similar to a laptop keypad.

Has anyone had any success with making a button overlay? When I google I just get programming button links (software related).

Thanks.
Jeff

I am looking for an answer to the same question. Any luck?

I am using a few of these shields for display and control of test units for field use, so I don't want the IC or other components exposed to dust, mist, etc. It sure seems like there should be a standard cover available, at least for the buttons.

Thanks,
Jim
