Wanted. A case that fits

Post by Bellepheron » Thu Jul 19, 2018 6:08 pm

Hi. I have tried 2 case for the official 7inch Touchscreen and both so far have been unsatisfactory as they are not made without some sort of modification with my dremil.
On 1 the screw holes on the case did not align with the brackets on the screen
On the other putting the case together damaged the cable from the controller to the screen.

So what I am after is as follows.
A case that holds the Pi 3
The official 7inch Touchscreen
The small usb cable connecting the 7inch screen control board USB to the Pi power usb
A hat

Perhaps room for mods but after that I dont think I can fit anything else.

Does such screen case exists?
Perhaps I need to raid my grand daughters lego box.

Regards to all

Many thanks for that. I have seen these and 1 at least looks promising but non of the spec tells you if the case can hold anything else such as hats. This is a MODMYPI forum so hoping that 1 case at lest can be modded to take addition add on boards to the Pi. The case needs to be roomy.

Thanks again and regards
