Is there a cheaper alternative to the samsung hard drive. Or maybe an alternative to the battery charger. I want to build it but it seems a bit pricey.

What's the trick in printing the mobile-pi-screen.stl file? I am using the makerbot2 3D printer and this part is giving me fits. Any chance I can buy this piece from you? The other pieces came out fine.

How did you connect the USB Hub to the 64GB SSD?

how do you get the case?

Mrbobokins on Feb 13, 2014 said:

He 3d printed it

Lemmiwinx on Apr 13, 2013 said:

Any chance of updating this to the "b" version 2?

partspeople on May 22, 2013 said:

Yes, it is compatible with both versions 1st and 2nd gen. 2nd generation does not require a feed back line to be soldered from the USB power to the input.

Does the pi-to-go fold up or is it stuck in the open position?

tybow99 on Mar 22, 2013 said:

I do not have a 3d printer, but am interested in this. How much would it cost to have all the parts printed?

Is there anybody who printed this out on a Lulzbot AO-101? I bought this machine mainly so I could build a pi to go and I can't even print it out! I have tried everything I know of, including repG and still no dice. Any help at all would be GREATLY appreciated.

partspeople on Feb 21, 2013 said:

Can you tell me what problems you are having. I created the files in google sketchup and netfabb. I printed the files on my pp3dp UP! printer with no problems. I will try to resolved the problem for you if you can tell me in what part of the printing process you are having the problem.

My one complaint about this is the lack of GPIO access, which in my mind is the greatest advantage rPi has. Nevermind they put it in a strange spot I'd still like to use this for projects.

So awesome. Thanks for your work and for sharing!

Really cool!

this is awesome!!!

Screen is pretty small though, could you use something like this?

partspeople on Dec 22, 2012 said:

I saw that one when I was building it but it only has a resolution 480 x 234 pixels. I opted for a screen that was smaller with 640 x 480 pixels. I am currently looking for a 5-7 screen that is HDMI for my 2nd version of the Pi-to-go.
