Featured Thing!

Description

With four 3D printers (so far) in-house, a new staff member from the heart of the 3D community, and #3dthursday, Adafruit has started getting into desktop 3D printing in a big way, especially where these fabrication tools interface with electronics!

Desktop 3D printers excel in the creation of custom enclosures for compact, dedicated electronics projects. We had seen Jason Welsh's outstanding Folding Arduino Lab (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:32839) when it launched this past fall and reached out to him with a special challenge -- to create a practical, modular case for the Raspberry Pi to share with our community!

Jason Welsh who created this design can be found on thingiverse at http://www.thingiverse.com/jasonwelsh, check out his other designs there. He also operates a youtube channel where he instructs many in the field of 3D Modeling, Design and Electronics, which can be found here http://www.youtube.com/cannedmushrooms. He invites you to come on by anytime and learn some new tricks.

Jason Welsh: “I hope this design helps you expand your imagination and guides you in all manner of nerdy ways while dishing out your Pi.”

Pretty neat looking. Looks like a spaceship. Would be kewl to see with LEDs and EL wire lighting it up.
I saw the videos. Didn't see the link on how to make the rivet rods.

Otherwise, great project! Can't wait to get started on it.

An excellent design. I hope you are able to publish this one to NERDITORIUM's Etsy site as you have done for your foldable Arduino case. Keep up the great work!
A great team up no doubt, it was great working with adafruit on this design. I printed like 3 of these already and I'm working on a kids version of the Pi ages 3-5 for the OS build. Hope you enjoy! BTW it looks like a tough build but its real easy, just make sure you watch the videos.
