Needed: Hi-Rise PiSound Case

Not sure if this is considered a feature request.
I don’t want to abandon the branding of the Blokas community on my RPi 4B & PiSound Hat so I need taller side panels for my current case of a new case to accommodate the addition of an M.2 NVME SSD Storage Expansion Board. Can I order a custom case from Blokas or is there a community member willing to make one for me that matches the material and branding of the regular PiSound case?

We can’t offer a customized case, but in case anyone is up for it, and would like to include the Blokas logo, here’s the SVG you could use: https://blokas.io/logo.svg :slight_smile:

Cool, and thank you for sharing.
What font is used for Blokas branding? Is there a forum category for soliciting community members who make such things for themselves and others?
Also, I looked for a Blokas style guide but didn’t find one in the docs wiki. I have professional experience in design and would be happy to work on creating one. This article has “rebrand” in the title, but the same principles apply regardless of the case.

I really need the vector file(s) for the RPi 4B sides to the case so I can pay someone to laser cut taller side panels, so can I get the template for making the pisound case so I don’t have to redraw the entire thing from scratch? All I could find so far was this from 4 years ago.

We sent you a PM. The case design is not currently open source.

OK, the M.2 SSD Expansion Card arrived, so I assembled it to begin getting real-world measurements for how tall I need to make the custom side panels for the stock Blokas pisound case top and bottom panels.

Might not be the look you are after but there might be something on Ender 3 Dual Rail Raspberry Pi 4 case by iiianydayiii - Thingiverse you could modify.

There are 3D print groups on FB where people ask for help on custom designs.

Thank you, I have measured and recreated the Blokas side panels in LibreCAD (Free, Open-Source version of QCAD CAD/CAM software). I am making them just tall enough to clear the additional height of the M.2 expansion card. It was easy to find a good quality frosted clear Plexiglass and reach out to a few people experienced in laser cutting to see who is interested taking the job for a reasonable price.

Longer-term I am experimenting with my own case designs inspired by someone else’s project where they used a laser-cut press-fit assembly technique shown in this image.
