Enclosure for a 5" OctoPi Touch Screen
I use this case attached to a Lulzbot Taz 6 and to a Ultimaker 2+ for touchscreen and remote control via Octoprint.
The enclosure is designed to ether sit on a flat surface or use the included mounting bracket to attach to a vertical surface. Designed to be printed in two colors to accent the front markings, and compliment the Ultimaker aesthetic.
FYI the screen is fantastic, being the perfect size for a Octoprint touch controller. It is easy to assemble as it connects with only one ribbon (DSI) cable and the Pi mounts directly to the back. It is fully supported and runs without any extra drivers plus powered by the DSI connection.*
I bought mine on amazon, but can it be found in eBay as well:
AMAZON: 5 Inch Capacitive Touch Screen W DSI Connector
EBAY: 5 Inch TFT Capacitive Touch Screen 800x480 DSI Connector
The Screen includes directions on how to configure the display orientation, but does not detail how to orientate the touch controller too:
If rotating the screen display use BOTH of the lines in the Pi config file:
I wanted all the cables to exit out one side only, so I added a 90"deg mini USB adaptor to route the power cable the same direction as the USB cables
90 Degree USB Male to Micro Female Plug Adapters
UPDATE: The cable and PSU below will provide better power so Pi does not display lightning bolt in the right corner indicating the Pi's power supply is marginal or insufficient for its requirements. The solution is a slightly thicker cable, less connections, and better PSU.

There are several youtube tutorials on-line, this is the one I used by Joe Mike Terranella
