I had a few of these "protoplates" made-- I fell in love with the one from AdaFruit for the BeagleBone and really wanted one for the LaunchPad and had some made.  (I have to thank Bart, if he's on he

I'm a bit late to this party but...


Here's mine:

Lasered by own stand-offs and cut some holes in the sled for those to fit in. Tossed a couple of graphics on it. My stand-offs fit the holes loosely enough to fall out when they are not holding a board. Snapping in a board puts enough tension on the 'ankles' to hold them in very snuggly by friction. Cyanoacrylate (super glue) or plastic cement will hold the stand-offs permanenty. Board can be pulled out if the stand-offs are not glued to the sled - or they can be snapped out by *carefully* pulling back on the 'peaks' of the stand-offs.


I cut 4 extra stand-offs, just in case I fail to be *carefull*. My laser is 50 watt with a 20" x 12" max material size.


Without glueing the stand-offs, mine is holding just fine while actually working with it.
