I'll need to find my NAS server, but give me about an hour to pull the STL files and post the update. Thanks for checking back in.

Ok, I think you have the logo's for run and pause flip flopped. At least they are on my X-Controller. Pause, Run, Cancel.

All fixed and posted. I'm running an MMU print now, so once it's done (takes about 25 hours), I'll post the photos. Thanks again for the quality control and the comments!

Nope, you're right. Got lost in translation. I'll update, fix, and re-post shortly. Thanks for the heads up!

Thank you for all the feedback! This is designed around the Raspberry Pi 7” Touchscreen, seen here;

I’m in the middle of a move but as soon as I get settled I’ll post a couple of updated designs. I’ve created and prototyped a multi material version that includes the Inventables logo and adds color to the functions over the buttons. I also changed the design of the button bracket so it accepts M3 screws and no longer requires standoffs, reducing the parts count. Next step is to test/try the RPi 4.

Any updates on the updates? (lol) Waiting, no so patiently. :-)

Updates posted. Send questions or concerns my way. Enjoy!

I was about to print this but I guess I will have to wait for the updates. I'm a huge user of octopi so this is going to be a great addition to my X-Carve. I actually wish I had this for the octopi with the job buttons, etc.

@greglwood, updates are now live, so enjoy!

Can you tell us which 7" display this was designed to hold?

This is an absolutely beautiful design/ idea, and I’ve been looking/waiting for something like this to come out or the X-Carve for a long time now. I have two suggestions, if I may be so bold. First, please reach out to Inventables and sell this on their site. This is a major improvement to the system and needs to make you a lot of money. Second, any thoughts on adding some type of a reusable/washable air filter for the X-Controllers grill at the bottom on the unit on the front? Just a thought, but it’s an idea I’ve had now for a while and thought it would be cheap to add, and would add an extra bit of kick to the products end result. One last thing, a YouTube video of this product would be fantastic so that people could see the both the product itself and it’s software in action. Again, fantastic project and thanks for sharing it on the forum over at Inventables, it’s very well done! Cheers!

Looking forward to building this - thanks for all the effort!

This is definitely on my todo list. Very nicely done.
