R-Pi case with GPIO access, SD-card tray, LED window by nap Feb 20, 2013

Description

Building on top of HansH's original Raspberry Pi case, and several derivatives, here is another version with a GPIO access window on top (ideal for attaching jumper wires), a tray to guard the SD card and a small window to see the LEDs.

Did something similar myself. Discovered the GPIO access wasn't deep enough. It needs to wrap around the side a little bit to give better access.
Yup, my bad. I've uploaded the correct file. Let me know if you still have trouble - thingiverse is taking ages to update the preview (does anyone else have that problem?).
Top STL seems invalid.

Instructions

I printed this on a Makerbot Replicator 2 with 1.75mm PLA filament and the build turned out to be fine (but see notes below).

<b>ReplicatorG GCode settings used</b> <ul> <li>Slicing Profile: Replicator 2 slicing defaults <li>Use Raft/Support: No <li>Use support material: None <li>Use default start/end gcode: Yes <li>Use Print-O-Matic: Yes <li> <ul>

&lt;li&gt;Settings
&lt;li&gt;Object infill (%): 25
&lt;li&gt;Layer Height (mm): 0.27
&lt;li&gt;Number of shells: 2
&lt;li&gt;Feedrate (mm/s): 80
&lt;li&gt;Travel Feedrate: 150
&lt;li&gt;Print temperature: 240

</ul> <li>Plastic <ul>

&lt;li&gt;Filament Diameter (mm): 1.75

</ul> <li>Extruder <ul>

&lt;li&gt;Nozzle Diameter (mm): 0.4

</ul>

Estimated build time: 41 min

<b>Notes</b> With 25% infill, 2 shells and the default medium resolution (.27mm) of Replicator 2, some very small regions in the R-Pi logo on top did not get filled. There might be scope for improvement in slicing algorithms here, but greater infill, a single shell or finer resolution may solve the issue (note that 2 shells actually means 3 because one perimeter is generated regardless).

Some filing may be necessary to get a good fit.
