The AstroPi RDX has been precision-machined for you from 6061-T651 aircraft-grade aluminum—very strong and durable, given its light weight.

The electronics mounting pads have been beefed up, and all holes are tapped for machine screws, so you can assemble and disassemble the case confidently and easily.

The anodized coating (anodize II) is extremely hard, which protects your case against scratches, fingerprints and dirt.  It also electrically insulates the aluminum to protect your electronics for added peace of mind—theirs and yours.

The laser-engraved markings are precise, durable and beautiful.

Your Phase Dock AstroPi RDX package includes the case itself and the assembly parts listed in the table below.  (This is everything you need if you previously built an AstroPi in a 3D-printed case and are upgrading to our aluminum case.)
