    ILAMtitan got a reaction from LariSan in LaunchPad Proto Plate- from Ponoko   
    Bart checking in here.  I think this is my first 43oh post despite being a member for some time.
     
    The original design was put together on a whim after talking to Lari one day about some training.  There's no particular reason it was made in a portrait orientation, and landscape will probably work even better.

    I published the design on Ponoko this morning for you guys, but it looks like Lari already took care of that.  So if you want on of the V1 designs, you can order it straight from them: http://www.ponoko.com/design-your-own/products/launchpad-proto-plate-9765
    Ponoko doesn't use STL files, but rather EPS. They do all the conversions to STL inhouse, using color data from the EPS file to set etching and the like.
     
    The original plan to mount the Launchpad down was to use some double stick foam dots like these: http://www.amazon.com/Mounting-Double-Sided-Diameter-Package/dp/B0046NNHIO
    Ideally they would just replace the rubber feet.  No idea how well that would work; they might have to be stacked to get the right thickness.  Another option for V2, depending on how much Lari want's to spend, is to use some fancier corner mount board standoffs: http://www.richco-inc.com/products/circuit-board-hardware/97-circuit-board-hardware-catalog.html?PartNum=&country=RICHCOUSA&grpcode=A1850
    This would also require some rubber feet on the sled since there are screws on the other side.
     
    Adding feet to the sled would also give a little more clearance for the wire wrap headers on the C2000 and Stellaris launchpads.  I think we can easily add some cutouts to allow those to pass through unmodified so that the Launchpads can be reused.  This would let the design be compliant across the whole Launchpad family, which is kinda the idea of them in the first place.
     
    If you guys have any other ideas, please let us know.
