PyGamer Acrylic case ... issues?

by bertshuler on Fri Jun 14, 2019 5:09 pm

I am new to AdaFruit and the maker community, so I am not sure what level of "professionalism" or "polish" to expect.

Specifically, the sides for the acrylic case do not line up. I have rotated them through multiple positions, and the best I can do is attached image.

One side looks mostly right,

but the other side is short.

So help me out, am I just a picky jerk, or maybe are these not quite right?

Thanks!

Thanks for the photos. Not sure if that's considered acceptable variance or something else. I'll ask.

hmm - there is some variance - check if the 4 insert pieces are equivalent? there is also some slop in the design to account for the laser, see if you can push the pieces to be flush. you may want to try the 3D printed case if you want a really smooth edge! we can try replacing the case, at least you'd have more pieces to choose from. it will never be perfectly flat tho, lasermelt has a kerf :/

SO, I ordered 4 of these (family project) and the second one was a much better fit. If it is OK, I will wait a few weeks and put the others together.... maybe it is just a matter of getting the right pieces matched together.

Thanks for the super quick reply.

sounds good - we have extra cases to replace with - maybe that first one was miscut :)
