Raspberry Pi Case (RasPi) by redpeppr Jun 11, 2012

Description

UPDATE 12/29/2012

Some user decided to put this case up for sale and did not pay any attention to the licensing of this item. I am removing the stls.

UPDATE 9/20/2012
thingiverse.com/thing:30572

A new thing has been released to replace this one. There have been many complaints about the rca port being off by just a hair so this has been resolved in the new parametric model not made in Sketchup like this one was.

I love how you guys are complaining I took the STL's down because of some DB selling my cases w/o my permissions. In the scheme of things if you guys bothered to read you would see there is a defect in this case and it does not fit current generation Rpi's. Please download and print the rpi 2 case which has been fixed and works great! Enjoy! thingiverse.com/thing:30572

Agreed :( I liked the look of this case. Oh well moving on.

wtf? so someone is selling them so you don't want others to print it anymore thereby making the guy selling it have more customers ;). Crazy thinking ....

Instructions

Print RasPiCase-Bottom.stl and fit the Raspberry Pi into the case SD card slot first. It should be a snug fit. Printing just the bottom is a great base for hacking away at the RasPi.

For a fully enclosed case print RasPiCase-Bottom.stl AND RasPiCase-Top.stl. Fit the RasPi in the case SD Card slot first and fit lid on top.

For larger bots you can print RasPiCase.stl which contains both the top and the bottom of the case in 1 plate.

I've been printing this with a .35 nozzle at .2 layer height with 2 perims and .2 fill. Doesn't even really seem to need a heat bed to print.


**UPDATE**
I've added a vented top to the case for those concerned with cooling issues.

If you tried printing this using PLA instead of ABS, would the raspberry pi melt the case?

redpeppr on Feb 13, 2013 said:

I only print with PLA and have not had any of the cases melt.

Culain on Feb 13, 2013 said:

propably not because the meltpoint of PLA is at ~150°C and the rPI wont get that hot.

Very nice cases for the raspberry Pi. We printed 3 for our Pi 's and they fitted perfectly. Thanks!

MikeDX on Sep 28, 2012 said:

printed today, fitted absolutely PERFECTLY!

redpeppr on Sep 16, 2012 said:

I'm releasing the fixed copy of the stl's today that should fix this issue. Check back later today!

TheCase on Sep 16, 2012 said:

Yes, exact same alignment issues on mine as well. Hole for RCA is too far right. Actually, its a good thing the plastic nub at the bottom of the USB prevents the board from going down any further into the case - if it did, the ethernet lock-tab would not have room.

TheCase on Sep 16, 2012 said:

Oh - forgot to mention... if you could fix those small issues (perhaps it is the difference between model A and B?), this would be the best case of the lot here. Certainly the best looking already!

I printed it.... Twice. It seems my first 'pi fits perfectly, the second one doesn't! I'll double check tonight, but I thought the video connector was smack in the middle of the hole....

netbear on Jun 14, 2012 said:

Printed the bottom part a few minutes ago in abs, unfortunately my raspberry pi seems to have slightly different measurements. The RCA-jack (tv-out connector) do not line up with the case and the usb connector have a ~1mm plastic thingy underneath which prevents it from sliding all the way down in the case. All other parts fits and aligns perfectly.

Are the stl files the source files or do you have scad files?

Thanks for a great case, with some minor adjustments it will be perfect.

The stl's are all I have available at this time.

This looks awesome... I think I've found my R.Pi case solution
