New Plastic Box design for A20-OLinuXino-LIME2 with LiPo6600mAh battery


PLASTIC-BOX-ASM1

Few days ago we got parcel with some plastic parts sent to us from Mike Bosschaert.

PLASTIC-BOX-ASM2

we inserted LIME2 inside, the tolerances are tight and it’s hard to put the board in but even harder if you want to pull it from the plastic.

There is place for LiPO6600mAh battery with holder, but the battery cable is too short to plug in the board connector and need to be cut and extended. If the battery is put at left side of the PCB the cable may be enough.

The assembled box looks nice! Mike wrote that he designed it with FreeCAD and the model is printed in PLA using a Felix Pro 2 FDM printer. He provided all STL files under CC BY-SA 4.0 licensee and we add to OLINUXINO GitHub repository.

    I recognize the two issues you mention, Tsvetan:
    1. the board fits tighly in the box. It was a compromise between structure/strength and size. Giving the board more space would have reduced the stiffness. I could consider removing some material in the opening above the HDMI console to give the board some more space while removing it from the box. I’ll look into that.
    2. I considered the left/right position of the board as compared to the battery. For practical reasons I wanted to have the power plug and the buttons near the corner of the box.
