Re: Detailed STL of Model 3A+ ?

Grabcad is an excellent source. The only model I could find on there was this one :- https://grabcad.com/library/raspberry-pi-3-model-a-1 If all else fails and you have 3D modelling skills, you might want to create your own model? I've done that in the past when testing to see how things will "...

I did not carefully read the prior post but it does appear to be a "hijack" and courtesy and good manners as well as proper attention require that it should be put on its own thread

Re: 2812 addressable leds and audio

IMHO you'd be better off driving the WS2812B's with an embedded processor ie an "Arduino" (or just the ATMEGA328P) and FastLED library. For Audio just use a separate device. Perhaps two Nanos? one for the WS2812B and the other for the audio. They're very cheap devices, even a pair is far f...

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 as a primary desktop computer?

I wonder how it would be like to use Raspberry Pi 4 (with 4 GB ram) as a primary desktop computer at home. RPI4 seems to have enough CPU power and ram to run YouTube and rest of the typical websurfing smoothly, I presume (smoothly at least for a person like me who have uses a 13 year old desktop co...

Re: Just bought Raspberry Pi - can't get past yellow/red/blue/green screen?

Hi, I've just bought a new raspberry Pi, and followed all the instructions to set it up, but when I turn on the power, it goes to a red/yellow/blue/green screen and just gets stuck on it. I am new to raspberry Pi, and not hugely tech-y. I did some research, but to be honest, I got confused with ter...

Re: Official Raspberry Pi 4 Case (screw spec ?)

The mounting holes in the Pi (2.7mm) are designed to take 2.5mm fasteners. But there is sufficient "meat" around the pads to carefully drill them out to 3mm.

Re: School project involving freezer

As suggested, why not place your Pi outside the freezer? With just a run of thin wires to a pair of thermocouples. That way, your wife will be happy, the heat from the Pi won't disturb the equilibrium of your freezer and you won't need to immerse it in mineral oil either :) Perhaps drop the idea of ...

Hi bro

Can i upgrade LPDDR4 4GB or 8GB form RPi4 (2GB)?
is it need to modify boot or something?

HansonD
Simplest solution: Just buy the 4Gb version and keep the 2Gb version intact. Pi's aren't that expensive so far as computers go. No?
