Adafruit style Raspberry Pi case by joshhighley Mar 19, 2013

Description

This is a combination of several Raspberry Pi case models, all based on the Adafruit case. I have tweaked the thickness and tabs so that little, if any, trimming is necessary before assembly.

Hi again, just wanted to ask: what is your rule to adapt designs to be 3d printed? 0.2 mm less per side?

Cool! I tried to rebuild the pieces but it is a complete mess. Eventually I think I will redraw the full case in Sketchup. Well, http://www.thingiverse.com/thi... with this model I get a precise fit for the earphone and RCA connector: http://cl.ly/PGDx (but the overal fit is poor and requires a lot of sanding)

The *.stl files are the sources. I use Wings3D to edit them. The hole for the SVideo jack has to be bigger to allow for the RCA plug. If I get time, I'll try to tighten up the headphone jack, and I think it also needs to move up slightly.

Hi again, this case fits perfect but the headphone jack is not nicely tight as in the original one (and I am not sure if the VGA connector requires that much space). Do you have some sources for the pieces? can you shrink just a little that hole? http://cl.ly/Oz6C Sketchup makes a real mess when editing stl :/

Excelent! Thanks. I was doing just this and find your version :)
