We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
In this project, we’re going to show you how to build your own mini mac classic with 3d printing and the raspberry pi.
A PiTFT display mounts to the front bezel and is easily removable with magnets.
Boot into Mac OS 7 and run classic mac apps like mac pant.
The open source design is free to download and available to customize in your favorite CAD software.
The largest part takes 4 hours to print and only costs about 5 bucks in material.
This 5 part enclosure is optimized for desktop 3d printers using PLA filament.
You can get all the parts for this project on adafruit dot com.
Find how out assemble the circuit by checking out the project guide on the Adafruit learning system.
The PiTFT fits on top of the raspberry pi and the body and base parts are secured together with machine screws.
A slide switch connects to the powerboost 500C and a rechargable lithium battery.
The enclosure has enough space for a small speaker and stereo amplifier.
The components are easily accessible and the front and back panels are secured with magnets.
the power boost 500c allows you to recharge the battery with micro usb
The pi runs a flavor of minivmac and emulates mac os 7, allowing you to run old school mac apps.
The ethernet and USB ports are easily accessible for networking and connecting other devices. An panel mount HDMI cable allows you to connect an external display.
