Imagine how much harder this would be without three d printers

Thanks man, I can't wait either, jut a bit worried about whether I've got my measurements right, I've checked three times and they've all come out right but I'm still worried, we'll have to see.

Aye, if that was the case, I would be thinking I'm back at school and make it out of ABS myself. It wouldn't be neat at all though

Little update.

The project is not dead or anything. I've just had to wait until I got my wages sorted before I could be let loose. That being said, I've got my Pi and other bits coming this week, and the 3D printing is being done for this week as well. Was hoping to have made a start by now but alas, things don't play out as you always hope for

Well I hope you read my disclaimer lol. It is a fun little project with a lot of practical use, just gotta be careful with what kind of TV you use when doing it.

Got up this morning expecting nothing to arrive until tomorrow, but *DING DONG* and there was the postman with not just the one parcel I was expecting, but another as well.

Instinctively, I opened up the mystery parcel first and to my amazement, it was the 3D Printing stuff I ordered and I must say, I'm very impressed with the results, and not only that, I've got 2 printouts of the main stand. Which is quite handy as a spare if (which by if, I mean when) I ruin something.

The USB mount fits perfectly into the VCR slot on the TV but the USB ports don't fit because like the donkey I am, I forgot that 3D printing has a tolerance and I measured the gaps exactly, so I've got some files on order to sort that out.



Now parcel number 2 and as you can expect, it's the gear I ordered for the Pi as well as the Pi itself.










I know people say that these are a waste of time, but since I'm using it purely for gaming, and that I have a thing for proper cooling, I got them anyway


Main thing to note is this: Pi Supply Switch. The Pi itself doesn't have a power off option, unless you get a switch on the power cable or pull the power cable out but even then you've got to tell it to shut down anyway. So I found this. It's a little board that you connect the main power cable to, then use a USB to the Pi, it has 3 switches on it, one for On, Soft Off, and Hard Off. It works using a relay to cut power or connect power to the Pi.

On switch simply does what it says on the tin. flicks the relay to power the Pi

Hard Off switch immediately flicks the relay to cut power to the Pi and bypasses the capacitor, like pulling the plug on it.

Soft Off is where it does its magic. It sends a command through the two pins connected to the Pi's GPIO to shutdown. While the Pi shuts down (Or just after it shuts down) the switch cuts power from USB by flicking the relay and begins running on the power stored in the capacitor. Once that is depleted the Pi is fully off.

Only thing you can notice is that you got to solder the whole thing exept the micro USB, which for me is great. But at the same time annoying because the soldering gun I have doesn't exactly have a small tip, so that's another amazon order for tomorrow.





That's it for now, would get the Pi online but got work instead so will most likely be Friday
