Creating an Enclosure

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.

Build vs. Buy

Those who prefer to print the enclosure using their personal 3D printer, enclosure design files is available in the “enclosure” directory of the latest build.

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.
