hi all, i have encased the beast in a cool 3d printed/lasercut custom case which makes it awkward to push the power button on the board. i am hoping to operate with a on/off/reset button and found a few references to the SW plug next to the LEDs. would anyone please be so kind to point me to a type of plug that would make a decent choice for a button i could integrate into a my case to switch the beast on. eternal gratitude offered...

2018-12-15 19:58:29 wow, @sisumike. you are the best. i have been looking for both - the button as well as the wires/plugs. thanks much for the pointers. this helped me a great deal. i like the vandal resistant Off-Mom pushbutton and i bet it would look really nice with a cnc milled alu case. the one i am trying to finish up right now is a 3d printed, black ABS, kinda whimsical looking, fairly minimal und understated case with lasercut acrylic lid. i will share here and on tinkercad and thingiverse when done.

For a flat minimal look I am very intrigued by this button.

and i just ordered a couple from digikey to see whether I can give these a go.

thanks again for your help

I've used these parts:

2018-12-14 23:18:09 Not sure exactly what you're going for, but something like the following might look slick. You could also use the "S0" pin to illuminate the LED.

It may be a bit large though, can you post a pic of your case?
