DRAWS

DRAWS™ Cases are Shipping to Customers!

All materials are in house now, and the first DRAWS™ Aluminum Cases will ship tomorrow.

Shipments will start with our Early Adopters. If you ordered an Early Adopter Case, make sure that is correct for your DRAWS™ HAT:

DRAWS™ Cases Have Shipped!

We anticipate having all of the case orders resolved by the end of the month, at which time we will focus on our TurnKey backorders.

It’s been a long and arduous task, and we appreciate your patience. We will be publishing an assembly video this week.

 

DRAWS™ Cases Have Shipped!

DRAWS™ cases have shipped from the manufacturer and we will start shipping once they arrive!

Important: Make sure you have ordered the correct case for your DRAWS™ HAT!

Please review your case order.
If your DRAWS™ HAT looks like this (SMA to left of DIN-6 connectors), Order the “early adopter” case

If it looks like one of these (SMA on the narrow side of board), you need the “production” case. If you ordered an “early adopter” case, please enter an upgrade order to get the correct case.

 

 

DRAWS™ Cases have moved to production!

We evaluated the latest samples last week and have approved them for production. Estimated delivery is 6-8 weeks, so we hope to be shipping by the end of the year. Both Early Adopter and Production Cases are now available for pre-order.

We were able to provide a fan option for both Cases. We tested with this 25mm 5VDC Fan which provides ~10 Deg C temperature reduction when pushing into the case and is silent.

I’ll publish complete thermal results for the Pi 3 & 4 later this week.

 

 

DRAWS™ Cases Moving to Production!

The final prototypes have arrived and have been checked for assembly. We are moving to the production order this week, after final touch-up, so we should have cases ready to ship in 6-8 Weeks.

We will post an assembly video soon, and will open orders after that.

Excuse the Kitchen Counter Photos, I wanted you to see the final Case design. Both Cases support the Pi 3 or 4.

Thanks for your patience,
Bryan K7UDR

DRAWS™ Case Update:

Checked out the latest case prototypes. Only had a few minor corrections, so we updated the CAD files and ordered production samples. Once they arrive we will have a production ship date.

DRAWS™ Shipping Status:

As of today all backorders have been filled on DRAWS™ Boards.

We now have 30 boards IN STOCK!

We have started a new run so we should have stock on hand going forward.
