How to made the case about seeedstudio

It’s different from the others case just like 6-acrylic sheets laser cutting case and injection model. Although it’s cheap and fast made, But maybe some people think it no personality. Now,there is a case for Raspberry PI B+ is out of the common, it’s designed by seeedstudio engineer. It’s not made by large scale way just like injection model and simple laser cutting. Made the case requires 3 kinds of production process——laser cutting ,CNC milling and hot bending. all the processes are suitable for small scale project.

The first process——Laser Cutting

We should cutting it by laser cutting machine, It’s cheap and fast.

The second process——CNC milling

After laser cutting you we should cutting some structure let it easy assembly and bending.

The third process——hot bending

The last process is hot bending, We can use the heater heating the acrylic notch which is machined by CNC milling machine.

After you know the 3 processes maybe you can understand why we said it’s out of the common.

Help us make it better

Thank you for choosing Seeed. A couple of months ago we initiated a project to improve our documentation system. What you are looking at now is the first edition of the new documentation system. Comparing to the old one, here is the progresses that we made:

  • Replaced the old documentation system with a new one that was developed from Mkdocs, a more widely used and cooler tool to develop documentation system.
  • Integrated the documentation system with our official website, now you can go to Bazaar and other section like Forum and Community more conveniently.
  • Reviewed and rewrote documents for hundreds of products for the system’s first edition, and will continue migrate documents from old wiki to the new one.

An easy-to-use instruction is as important as the product itself. We are expecting this new system will improve your experience when using Seeed’s products. However since this is the first edition, there are still many things need to improve, if you have any suggestions or findings, you are most welcome to submit the amended version as our contributor or give us suggestions in the survey below, Please don’t forget to leave your email address so that we can reply.

Happy hacking
