A modular rack system for the Raspberry Pi.
I made it so the audio/composite ports basically hold the Pi in place.
(If making a cluster, I'd think audio and even video wouldn't be needed. I'm ssh'ing into the Pis)

The top support is for 5 Pis (easy enough to change/redesign fro the # you need)

As a footnote, the Pis are a little crooked; I didn't feel like fixing it, needed the system up and running.

There seems to be a slight difference between the Element 14 and the RS versions on the audio connector. The Element 14 seems to a little shorter and spaced a little further apart, both by abut .5mm


Dovetails might need a little filing for a good fit.

could you please consider revising this design for the Raspberry Pi B+ model?
the key difference would be using the hdmi port instead of the now missing video port, but this should
not be too hard if you make a hole in the mount to hold a male hdmi plug scavenged from any old
hdmi cable glued in, this will make the mount very secure and flush. please consider!

Other prob is the power is on same edge as the HDMI (I HATE the micro USB power connector)
But I have an idea. Gimmie a few.

i know, thats a pain - i think a cutout for that as well would work - one of those right-turn micro usb plugs? feel fre to make the base unit thicker to accommodate.
thanks so much!

Thats an OTG cable, it might cause problems. Its meant to use the phone as a host for devices. They mess with one of the pins, so the phone can power the usb device.

yes i had not tracked down the exact cable but was giving an example of the turn style, but like this one which is even smaller:

hey i just noticed the B+ has 2 screw holes - could we adjust the 3d rack to pop-up a simple screw hole for a nut and bolt for sideways mounting? more sturdy than hdmi port for sure. thanks!

I have over 20 Element 14 Pi and Can you possible make this work for it?

How so? Its a modular system. Just print out the number of them you need. They dovetail together.

The coolest thing I've see all week.

Pi hoarder! ;p

Thats supercool.

Hey I would be interested to know for what usage you're making a Pi cluster?

:) Not a true cluster, but I got a pile of old HDs that need to be wiped clean, so its small tight setup for that. (and hey I got the Pis :) )
