Raspi Internet of Things Printer Case

by ghear on Mon Sep 29, 2014 9:53 pm

Hi, I also posted this in Raspberry Pi subforum.

I am looking to build my internet of things printer ASAP. I don't know about laser cutting, and I see the laser cut case is not available for individual purchase. How do I go about getting these precise pieces cut? Are there designs available? Can I bring these designs to a laser cut shop? I live in Berkeley, CA (bay area). I will buy the remaining parts, but would like a nice case.

Thanks

The designs are available here:

Local hackerspaces may have a laser cutter available to their members. Or there's TechShop, though that's pricey unless you anticipate having a lot of ongoing projects that could use all the tools there. Could also try a sign or trophy shop, or a plastics dealer like Tap. Or you could brave The Wilds of Craigslist.
