Keep your Raspberry PiÂ® computer safe and sound in this lovely clear acrylic enclosure. We designed this case to be beautiful, easy to assemble and perfect for any use (but especially for those who want to tinker!)
The case comes as 6 pieces that snap together, made of crystal-clear acrylic. This ingenious design has no screws or standoffs and there are cute little feet cut into the sides so that it stands up above your desk. There are engraved labels on all the connector slots. You can use all of the connectors on the edges of the Pi: HDMI, Audio, Video, SD slot, micro USB power, Ethernet and the two USB ports. We also added a slot so that you can connect a 26-pin IDC cable to the GPIO breakout pins on the Pi and pass it though the case. For more advanced hacking, the enclosure is designed so that you can remove the top piece and plug any sort of cables you wish into the breakouts in the middle. The case is airy enough that no additional vents or cooling is required - we tested the enclosed Pi over a 24 hour period at full load with no significant increase in temperature.

Cut at TechShop in Austin (Round Rock) with Clear Acrylic from Inventables (23876-11) which is 0.118in thick. Â Came out great and the claw works well.
I just cut this using a Full Spectrum hobby laser and it worked great! Thank you Adafruit!!!
Here's what I did:
1) Saved the SVG file and opened it with Inkscape.
2) Scaled the design up by 125% as gregrob suggested (thanks!).
3) "Printed" to RetinaEngrave3d (software provided by FSLaser). Okay, this was actually two steps. I sent the box design to RetinaEngrave3d as a vector cutting job and the text from the design as a raster engrave job.
4) Set job up as "Raster then Vector", configured power/speed for my acrylic and away it went!
My Raspberry Pi is now snugly inside its new home. Good fit and great no-tool design!
