7" TouchScreen for Adafruit 7inch TFT touch Screen

Post by ianjeffery » Wed Jun 06, 2018 3:33 pm

Hi,

I have just purchased your 7" touch screen case and stand for the Raspberry PI 7" touch screen.

I'm hoping to see how well the Adafruit 7" touch screen fits ( its a long shot ) - its a bare TFT screen but i cant find anything to even start designing my own case.

I was wondering,

Do you provide a facility to do one off runs on your laser cutter? ( Im local - off Broadmead - round the corner from you ).

Ian.

We are happy to do minor adjustments to our existing designs, but full customisation isn't an option I'm afraid.

There would also be a MOQ of 1 sheet of acrylic.

Hi,

Thank you for your reply.

from having a test last night, only the front black surround, and the next sheet down ( the first clear sheet that goes around the tft metal case itsself ) - both of these would just need to have the centre hold shrunk by 2mm-> 3mm on each edge -> so the screen cutout becomes 3mm smaller in the x and y planes.

Is this the sort of modification you could do?

Other than that, i can make my pcb fit the hole dimentions of the raspberry pi, so nothing else would need changing.

this is the spec sheet for the Adafruit 7inch screens.... page 5 shows the screen dimentions

no one seems to make a suitable case/surround for this screen, which is crazy as its a great cheap ( ish! ) screen.

We are going to look into producing a case for this screen :)

Can't say how long it'll take, but its on the "things to do" board!
