The VMX-pi circuit board contains sensitive circuitry, and should be handled carefully.
An enclosure is recommended to protect the VMX-pi circuit board from excessive handling, “swarf”, electro-static discharge (ESD) and other elements that could potentially damage the VMX-pi circuitry.
An enclosure for the VMX-pi is available.
An enclosure can be 3D-printed, or purchased.
Those who prefer to purchase the enclosure can order it from Shapeways. The price will be approximately $65 plus shipping, depending upon the type of material used.
For those who prefer to print the enclosure using their personal 3D printer, enclosure design files are available as described below.
Two separate designs are available, depending upon which version of Raspberry Pi is used:
Raspberry Pi 3B/3B+
Enclosure design files for Raspberry Pi 3B/3B+ are in the “enclosure_rpi3” directory of the latest build.
The enclosure design files include:
|Enclosure Bottom 5 Print.STEP||Enclosure Base (STP CAD File)|
|Enclosure Top 5 Print.STEP||Enclosure Base (STP CAD File)|
|Enclosure Bottom 5 Print.STL||Enclosure Base (STL File for 3D Printing)|
|Enclosure Top 5 Print.STL||Enclosure Base (STL File for 3D Printing)|
Raspberry Pi 4B
Enclosure design files for Raspberry Pi 4B are in the “enclosure_rpi4” directory of the latest build.
|VMX_RPI4_Bottom.STP||Enclosure Base (STP CAD File)|
|VMX_RPI4_Top.STP||Enclosure Base (STP CAD File)|
|VMX_RPI4_Bottom.STL||Enclosure Base (STL File for 3D Printing)|
|VMX_RPI4_Top.STL||Enclosure Base (STL File for 3D Printing)|
