    Default Home-made ACA500 case project

    Here is first photo of home-project ACA500 case
    This is a view of PROTO upper case. You can see some kind of surface deformation at "label sticker" but it will be corrected. The casing structure looks like its side.
    It is printed on self-made 3D printer so please, be forgived.
    Next pic are from project - backplate will be prepared for other extensions (I have nothing but ACA500 only).
    I was checking dimensions with Apollo 1260 so I had to hardly remove one leg for screw

    Some correction will be made soon. Led-holes can be made handly

    Remember - It's a PROTO
    More pics later, when PROTO will be finished

    It looks very promising, congrats!
    Are you planning to produce and sell them in the near future?

    Very nice! This would go great with my ACA500. It would be nice if you could smooth out the 3D print a bit more.

    Great work!

    For sure... keep us informed!
    btw, as far as you know would that case work for an ACA500+ as well? I know that they are a bit different...

    I have no ACA500+ or any dimensions so I don't know what's to change.
