      The TNC oomes configured to use the Serial port. You have to set it to i2c mode using pitnc_setparams in serial mode.

      Struggling a little with the PiTNC in i2c mode. I _think_ I have the Pi in a state where it should see the TNC. What am I doing wrong? I've included my troubleshooting steps below.

      I have JP3 and JP4 open and JP7 closed. I have not tested the RS-232 interface.

      I've spent a fair amount of time on this and would love to help improve docs, where possible.

      That did it, John, thanks! For any who are just considering it, this is an _awesome_ little kit. Now I just need to fire up the laser and knock out a case.

            Well, another (more 21th century-like) option is thayt somebody makes an open-source design for a case and upload it to (e.g.) thingiverse. That way, everybody can print out their own case using a 3D printer.

            Another option is to use of the existing designs for a raspberry-pi case that are available on thingiverse (a quick search have me 21 cases on it) and modify it to support the TNC-X board.



            This is 2013 people and we are now in the age of do-it-yourself, localised and customised manufactoring!!! :-)

              That did it, John, thanks!

              For any who are just considering it, this is an _awesome_ little kit. Now I just need to fire up the laser and knock out a case. ;)

                Just pop in almost any hackerspace or in the world and they'll have one.

                The technical college-university here has (at least) three of them (and there are two hams of our radio club working overthere). I have a collegue at work doing his own 3D design and -if you are really lazy- there are companies who do this via the email.

                Just upload the sketch and they print it out and send it to you via the mail. Just search around!


                BTW. They even sold one via ibood a couple of months ago. (ibood is a company that sells one product a day at a relative cheap price). That was -for me- probaby the best proof that 3D printing has gone mainstream.

                John, Well, another (more 21th century-like) option is thayt somebody makes an open-source design for a case and upload it to (e.g.) thingiverse. That way, everybody can print out their own case using a 3D printer. Another option is to use of the existing designs for a raspberry-pi case that are available on thingiverse (a quick search have me 21 cases on it) and modify it to support the TNC-X board. This is 2013 people and we are now in the age of do-it-yourself, localised and customised manufactoring!!! :-) 73 kristoff - ON1ARF On 13-06-13 16:58, John Hansen wrote:

                  This site is particular for Europe but I would be very surprised if something simular would not exist on your side of the big pond.


                  My collegue who has a 3D printer actually have a talk on it in our local radio-club. Some of the ideas -usefull for ham- that came to our minds was a replacement for an antenna mount that might be broken, or a case to mount your HT + and external mic on the handlebar of a bicycle or ... a case for a electronics project. :-)

                    I have made a few custom cases for various things using the techniques
                    similar to what's described in this article:

                    <http://blog.makezine.com/2011/08/31/skill-builder-fabricating-project-boxes-from-pcb-cladding/>

                    If you take your time you can end up with a nice looking enclosure even
                    if you do not have a sophisticated shop or a lot of expensive tools.

                          I have no interest in this product/company other than as a satisfited
                          customer for several decades, but I'd suggest taking a look at this
                          solution for multi-board integration from Bud Industries, called the
                          "Board-Ganizer":

                          http://www.budind.com/view/Plastic+Boxes/Board-ganizer+Enclosure+Kit

                          As you can see, it's designed to handle the Raspberry Pi as well as
                          other similar products, and up to three similarly-sized expansion boards
                          or a protoboard. This looks like a great solution for experimenters
                          and developers since everything can be built and tested in a flat
                          configuration, and then "rolled-up" into a 5" by 5" by 3.5" enclosure
                          with disturbing existing wiring. I like the ability to access every
                          board and connector since the design is not tailored to a specific
                          physical layout, and to be able to expand and add boards as needs or
                          interests grow. The price is great, too.

                          I understand it's in stock (or soon will be) at DigiKey, Mouser, and
                          Newark/element14.
