Raspberry Pi Case 2 (RasPi) by redpeppr Sep 19, 2012

Description

UPDATE 2/11/2013

Case as seen in Develop3D Magazine! The STL's have been uploaded to the page again. Please do not resell them without my permission.


This is an updated version of "Raspberry Pi Case" thingiverse.com/thing:24721 that I designed back in June.

This new version fixes:
* RCA Port misalignment
* Headphone port misalignment
* Walls not thick enough for .40 layer thicknesses

Additions:
* Thicker
* Open top for hacking
* Vesa mount bottom

The Pi fits perfectly in it, but I can't get the microUSB cable plugged in deep enough. It's so loose it will disconnect once you touch the case or the cable.

Will the slots in the top of the case allow usage of the raspi camera module?

It's a great fit with my raspi, I don't think I'm even going to print the top part the bottom is so snug. Thank you for putting up the files again, I was getting pretty worried about getting lead all over my desk.

Instructions

If you have a 200mm x 200mm you can print "RasPi Case2 Open Top and Bottom.stl" or "RasPi Case2 Top and Bottom.stl"

If you have a smaller print surface than you will need to print the lid and the bottom separately.

Lids:
* RasPi Case2 Top.stl
* RasPi Case2 Top Open.stl
* RasPi Case2 Top Vented.stl

Bottoms:
* RasPi Case2 Bottom Final.stl
* RasPi Case2 Bottom Vesa.stl

You can also download RasPi_Case.zip and get all of the individual pieces in one download.

Fit the 2 halves together and your done! The layers of the print should act like snap fittings and the case *should* snap closed!

I print these with a .5 nozzle at .20 or .40 layer height, 2 shells/perimeters and .10 infill.

Happy Printing!

FYI copyright doesn't protect against the sale of 3D objects, only the resale of your design files. When we are sharing things with each other some people are always going to try to take advantage, just don't let it bother you. The ideal that you can retain complete control is never going to happen so let it go and be a lot happier. :)

Vote it down all you like, It doesn't change the reality of the law.

Do you print it in ANS or PLA? I tried ABS and got major fitting problems due to warping. Since I don't habe PLA but quite a few RPis, I wonder if PLA printed cases offer a better fit.

redpeppr on Jun 23, 2013 said:

I only print in PLA and the pi's don't seem to get hot enough to cause any warping that I've seen.

Fits the raspberry pi nicely. Thanks!

For those interested a timelapse of it printing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v....

Glad the files are back. I cannot wait to print this case out!

I love the case, but how about a version with the GPIO ribbon cable slot?
Thanks

I just got a ribbon cable so a new version will come out eventually.

Warning: Raspberry Pi sold separately

kwixson on Feb 21, 2013 said:

I'm glad to see you reconsidered posting the design. It was the right move. By all means do go after the violators of the CC license with all the means at your disposal, but it's important we all keep trusting the CC system to work.

Arcten on Jan 26, 2013 said:

I can understand your frustration with someone else taking your case design and selling it, but I think badger32d makes a good point in that all you're really doing is hurting hobbyists who would love to print your case but cannot, while the person selling it already has the designs.

Your work looks quite nice, and I, and presumably other as well, would be extremely grateful if you allowed downloads once more.

twinsenw on Jan 9, 2013 said:

if you tried to print this using PLA instead of ABS, would the raspberry pi melt the case?

maxinux on May 31, 2013 said:

PLA all the way! raspi doesn't generate enough heat to be a problem

Spiffyrobot on Jan 5, 2013 said:

Sorry to see you pulled the stl's, Just got a 3d printer, and a raspberry pi.

badger32d on Jan 1, 2013 said:

I don't exactly see the point in pulling it down just because one user put it up for sale. Obviously that user already has the stl's.

This, being one of the best pi cases on thingiverse, is a sad thing to see disappear. Would you consider putting them back up?

joejasinski on Dec 30, 2012 said:

Looks like a really nice case and I'd like to try it. I don't know the details of the license dispute or the original license which caused the download removal, but I hope that gets resolved. In the mean time, it looks like I'll have to try printing: http://www.thingiverse.com/thi... or http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

hi!

We're putting together a story for our DEVELOP3D magazine on a number of people working on Raspberry Pi cases in the 3D printing community. Would you mind if we featured your design and asked a few questions?

Cheers

Al Dean, DEVELOP3D

Sure!

What did you use to slice it?

My Raspberry Pi is no longer nude!  It is fashionably dressed now, thanks to you.

Thnx! It fits well around my Pi.
