My opinion on the XIM4 hardware
« on: 06:18 AM - 08/01/14 »
I think it really looks neat although I liked the rubberised look. Was the button the cause to make the top non rubberized, was it pinched? Its much smaller than I thought it would be. Great Design overall. Maybe take in consideration to replace the cheap foam feet with rubbers. 9/10 but only cause I will never be satisfied!

It's amazing what Sugru can do, buy a 5 pack and go crazy. I have one pack left I might fix the feet or stick a spare android to it at an angle to make my Xim4-android-ultimate-gaming-device.  ;D

Thank you roads, I appreciate it. it means a lot.

No, the paint wasn't the cause of the sticking button. It was that it was getting caught on the PCB inside since the rails it glides on weren't thin enough to allow it to readjust itself. Strangely the prototype (high quality 3D print) didn't have the problem so the steel mold needed to be amended.
