Raspberry Pi Case by opensour.cc

All the cases I could find had some catch to them; either the Raspberry wouldn't fit right, or the port holes didn't line up, or you needed glue or rubberbands to hold it together, or it didn't provide sufficient protection or ventilation. At the behest of my associate, I drafted this version for our purposes. Enjoy!


Print with 1 shell and 0 fill. This makes the walls smoother, less brittle, and slightly translucent. I've been using 120 C for my platform temp and no raft.

The top piece takes about 1.5 hrs and the bottom takes 1 hr.

Your Raspberry should be held snugly into the bottom piece by the clips and the cover should snap securely on and easily removed. We've also noticed that the case separates easily upon impact providing shock absorption if dropped.

Update: Added extension to protect Scan Disk
Updated: Flipped logo

Yay a case that doesnt smother the usb jack.

I printed out the caselogo and it came out great. However, when I printed out the case2 it printed without a good portion in a triangular shape. Any ideas on why this would happen? Great design btw.

I had to run the case2 file through Netfabb's stl clean-up cloud service in order for it to slice properly. Looks like there's some non-manifold areas of the file.

I'm having trouble picturing what you're describing. Can you send a picture perhaps? It sounds like a problem during the gcode rip process. Maybe just redownload the file and rebuild it? Thanks for printing!

This is a nice case and a nice design. Thanks.
