    Default Much cleaner installation

    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.

    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

    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.
