TinyPi questions!!

Post by jgreen624 » Wed Aug 29, 2018 11:17 am

Hi folks,

I won a TinyPi kit from the anniversary drawing, which I've been putting off. I'm starting to get ready to finally pursue this project.

I'm not a full-on newbie but I'm certainly not as talented as the majority of you, and I am learning as I go by instructions/tutorials/guides etc.

First question, and perhaps Moose himself can weigh in: what do I NOT have in this kit that I need to buy? I can see there's no Pi0, that's easy enough. And I know there's no 3d printed case included either. Otherwise, do I have all the components needed?

Second: where is the BEST guide? I've seen the hackaday page and I'm a little lost looking at all of that. Is there a build guide elsewhere? Please let me know what links I'm missing.

Third: does anybody on here in the US have a 3d printer that is willing to sell me their services to print me the case for the finished product?

I do try to do my research first, so my apologies if any of this is obvious!

Thanks everyone, cheers.

You will need a case, pi, SD as well as the base kit, moose does sell the tiny cases of not maybe Werm could offer his services if you pm him, wermy and moosepr both have very good guides on tinypi assembly you should check out on YouTube.

Ahoy there!

Congratulations on winning the TinyPi. You have the base kit, so you need to add pi, battery, charge board, and case.

First place to look is the wiki I have been playing with over at my website

http://tinypi.pi0cket.com/Main_Page

And there are some videos over on YouTube

The site has been there for a while! I'm having a bit of a re-shuffle though
