MakerBot Print is our newest print-prepration software, which supports native CAD files and STL assemblies,
allows you to interact with all your printers via the Cloud, and many other exciting new features.
I setup a Raspberry Pi 3 to experiment with ROS, OpenCV, and whatever else I felt like looking into, and I wanted a desktop case for it. I started trying to duplicate the look of the Intel NUC stuff, but ended up doing a "micro" version of a desktop PC tower case.
The basic specs for the setup are:
Raspberry Pi 3 with WD Pi drive (314GB) as the boot disk. (No SD card at all)
Adafruit audio amp driving stereo speakers (Okay, they are a bit close together.)
Pi and HD LED's moved to the front panel.
Adafruit 128x64 OLED display and four buttons. Used for menu system to start stuff, show status, and reboot/shutdown system.
All Pi USB & Ethernet ports brought out to panel mount sockets.
Pi serial console port connected to USB serial adapter on back panel.
Variable speed cooling fan, speed based on CPU temp.
