Stackable Raspberry Pi Case

Stackable Raspberry Pi Case by sdeyerle Mar 25, 2012

Description

This is a stackable Raspberry Pi case I'm working on to allow you to build small clusters of Raspberry Pi's. I don't touch CAD much (I'm an electrical engineer), but I'm pretty happy with this attempt.

I used the dimensions for the Raspberry Pi provided by Gert from the Raspberry Pi forums (http://www.raspberrypi.org/forum/projects-and-collaboration-general/beta-boards-mechanical-data), so it may not be totally accurate yet.

I printed this using a Stratasys uPrint SE in the Configurable Computing Lab at Virginia Tech (http://www.ccm.ece.vt.edu). These guys are awesome / I work here, so I need to give the obligatory shoutout. I have no idea how it would perform on a MakerBot, but it came out pretty well on the uPrint.

Also note, I have made a few modifications between the printed pictures and the uploaded STLs. I removed my name and my lab name, and fixed a few mistakes I didn't catch before my first printing.

Hope you guys like it!

This version appears to be non-manifold. Can you check the file & advise? Thx.
The bottom looks like it would print on a RepRap style printer, except for the feet. A version that used 3mm filiment pegs to stack would solve that.

Instructions

I'm not really sure what to put here...

Print the parts on a decently high-res 3D printer, and they should snap together and just work! :-)

I'll update the files if need be when I actually get my hands on a Raspberry Pi. I got in on the first batch shipping from Newark, but who knows when it will actually get here.

Update 3/27/2012: I made the clips a little more beefier, added more clearance around the mini-USB connector, increased the gap on the lip so the two halves will fit together better, and increased the size of the board corner orient-er pieces so they are a bit more robust. New STLs are uploaded
