Redesigned my P10 to make it easier to get to the BBB. Originally I had a Pi inside the panel. The panel is 10 feet above my head and if anything went wrong I would have to take it down. In the middle of winter that could prove to be a problem. I also had issues with flickering so I got a BBB and everything is just dandy. The box on the side of the panel houses the BBB making it more convenient to get too. Since the frame is metal I 3D printed a tunnel so no wires will get cut in too by the metal edges. Worked like a charm.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190214/ab68a31e7cee2fe43d7a9771d9851bf5.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190214/7834f1910a0ed5fb8edf0087360408d4.jpg

I had been kicking around similar ideas in my head for the same reasons (external box for BBB to allow easier access). But I haven't made any mods yet. Thanks for sharing the photos and ideas :thup:

This is the case tunnel I made. It glues inside the small box and extends inside the case. Great way to save wires from rubbing on metal.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190214/2a7869714b7800e21d2e75c4fe5f69a9.jpg
