LCD Mount for Khadas Captain + Edge / Edge-V

Yep, I think we will do, but just need some time as our team under 996 for some quite long time :frowning:

PS: we have to ensure we delivery the committed jobs first.

Thanks for the suggestions :sunny:

“996”. That is a tough schedule. Doesn’t leave much time for life outside of work. Hope you all get a breather soon.

M2 locknuts for buttons! Doesn’t come loose anymore. Can probably screw them in deeper to make the buttons flatter.

As you may know you can get various Caps to Fit Bolts etc you find something to make it look swishy

Oh yes those do look swishy. :smiley:

I did order some colourful ones earlier, and they didn’t arrive - think I got scammed. Haha!

Will look for another bunch.

Just another update regarding the Edge Series, we’re waiting for a new adapter board for the TS050 Touch Screen that will have better socket placement for the FPC cable - hence why in all the photos you don’t see me connecting an FPC cable from the LCD to the Captain board.

Once that arrives, I should be able to test out the entire mini-computer as a whole, and get it booted up.

TS050 LCD module is complete. Just ordered 3 more acrylic casings for @kenny to test. Casing project restarted. :stuck_out_tongue:

Drivers for this will be only on android?

Also works for linux.

When will be LCD shipped for INDIEGOGO backers?
I have not received it yet.

Hi @liucx:
We already shipped out the TS050 LCD last week, check your inbox for the tracking number.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

Good day!

Hi,

I received the touch LCD. Thank you!

Anyway, I want to know we can get this mount case.
If so, how can we get this?

@tsangyoujun Yes. I want to know it.

@licux it is complete. Okay I should make a note to do a demo of it.

It all works when assembled (screen + touch + physical buttons) - except that the FPC cables are too short, will have to find longer ones!

Battery Power:

Connected via USB-C:

Is this another project? or dropped? I need just a small, solid, trustable case for Edge-V and 1080p screen. (no switches or swivel)
If it has been dropped, could you share CAD spec to 3d-print user’s DIY?

Hi Sean,

We didn’t stop, just chose to focus on the captain casing first.

What kind of case are you thinking of? A tablet-like casing?

What’s your usage environment?

Nice to hear it. I have Edge-V and TS050. The simple box like pictures on your older post could be enough for me. Something similar with current work for Captain would be also nice. However, It seems I have to wait more to get any one. :smiley:
Thanks for your efforts.

Hey @Sean_Yi,

I think I’ll share with you the 3d files first, so you can 3d print your own casing.

An acrylic casing (for Edge-V) would need a lot more work before mass manufacture - likely you can prototype much faster if you have an FDM printer lying around the house (or use 3D Print Hubs).

Your prototype design will also give us an idea of how you intend to use your Edge-V and TS050. :stuck_out_tongue:

3D Print Hubs (their website has changed quite a bit): https://www.3dhubs.com/

STEP Files: Edge-V + Battery + Screen

Things to keep in mind:

  1. Space for heatsink + fan, plus ventilation pathway
  2. Length of FPC and TP cables, and routing
  3. Through-holes for M2 screws and nuts
  4. Openings for buttons and ventilation
  5. Ease of assembly / disassembly

The screen will “glue itself” into the frame, as there are 3M glue-strips on the bottom sides.
