Summary

Easy to print solid Raspberry Pi 2 or 3, Official 7 inch touchscreen case. I wanted to keep the black bezel look of the screen and not making it bigger. You will need 4 M3x6 or 8 screws to secure the back cover. There is room inside for the power cables.
I will use this as a kiosk display and NAS for my Kodi player I have cut out some areas at the back where I can add velcro strips to mount a 2.5 inch HDD.
Enjoy and show off your builds and mods.

Update 290516: Added 2cm Velcro lid and lid without HDD support.

Update 310516: Added new case with little door access to the SD card. Still need small pliers or pincet but it's easier than unscrewing the back lid.

Update 150317: Added split STL for front to enable print on small print beds.

I am going to use raspberry pi for the first time with the display for the first time and I would like to thank you for making this ...It will save me money from buying one and I can't 3d model that good and with your permission id like to remix this if I need to

Hi GregTheGreatOne, Please remix as much as you want. Success with the Raspberry Pi. I love it and there is a great community out there to help you.

Is it possible to still use HATs with this print? Ideally I would like to use some kind of breakout like the BlackHat Hacker - it looks like the back piece has a little lip that helps the model stand up.

No, I never tried it but don't see enough space with the lid closed. The little lip at the back is to support my external HD.

Have changed front panel a little. You may check it at http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2007689

Raspberry pi 7 inch screen case (remastered)

Looks great. Nice extra flavour.

Very nice work, thank you !

Could you possibly make a 5-inch version?

Hi georgeford,

Don't think the 5" version is official Raspberry, at least I don't have access to it.

If you've printed this out and updated your firmware, you probably found that your screen is now UPSIDE DOWN! Easy fix.
Go to your Rasbian prompt and type > sudo nano /boot/config.txt
You will see the text file.
Hit enter twice while the prompt is at the top to make room for a new line.
Move your cursor to the top and type LCD_ROTATE=2
Then type and it will ask if you want to save before quitting.
Hit Y
Then hit ENTER
You should be back to the Raspian prompt
Type sudo reboot
Your screen should be the right way up again

Yes this works, thanks !!!

Does one of the back slots line up with the picamera ribbon cable or do I have to provide another one?

They don't line up as the back slots are vertical but it works if you twist the cable inside the box.

Thanks. I guess a tweak is in order. No problem.

Just finishing my print on this... I am having a tough time figuring out how you powered the screen with so little space to run the USB cable inside the housing (from the Pi board to the screen's board). Will post photos later :) Also, specifics on the size of the screws you used?

Hi Looptron, I didn't use the usb ports to power but the supplied jumper cables as explained in the manual that comes with the TS.

Thanks, got it figured out! Printed in a Sainsmart Wooden PLA... Will post photos soon.

OK, please post some photos. I'm sure it looks great in Sainsmart Wooden PLA!

it would be great if you could design in a compartment for a battery. I realize that the battery options/configurations are many but something to accommodate a power bank might be useful.

Thanks for Sharing, I love the design!

Hi, You can buy them in a lot of places. Just search for raspberry pi official 7-inch touch screen in Google.
