MakerShed Raspberry Pi Starter Kit Mounting Plate by scanner Jan 30, 2013

Description

There are a lot of raspberry pi enclosures on thingiverse but none of them were designed to hold a raspberry pi and the breadboard that comes as part of the makershed raspberry pi starter kit.

So I cobbled this together.

Sorry about that.. I uploaded a new version of the scad file, but forgot to upload a new STL file.

I stopped using the stand offs because they were simply too fragile at the size I had to use and kept breaking off, so just providing a hole that a simple 5mm M3 bolt went into was much more sturdy and did not break off.

The .SCAD file does not produce the .STL file. There are holes in the compiled .STL file output by OpenSCAD. Also, PCB Stand Off library has gone to ver "1.2".

Instructions

NOTE: In addition to using MCAD (which comes bundled with OpenScad) it uses the PCB Stand Off Library ( thingiverse.com/thing:44894 ). Since I decided to stop using the split end stand offs I could probably just go back to using cylinders.

Since the design has long stretches I added the rounded triangles to reduce the amount of plastic tension that could cause warping as you print it. The start of a 'rounded equilateral triangle' module is included in the scad file.
