  1. Does the little pitft tactile switches still work with this enclosure?

  2. RoboLemur says:

    There is not enough space on the top panel to have holes for the switches. However, the case should work just fine without the top.

  3. Elvis Presley says:

    What thickness of acrylic is this design expecting?

  4. Craig says:

    3mm, which most 1/8″ acrylic is, for the non-clip parts and 3/32″ for the clipping componenets.

  5. Chase says:

    Does thw Pi2 fit?

  6. Chase says:
