When I printed the vexaae's original GPIO connector with a makerbot replicator 2 (PLA filament) the holes would get filled in and some sides failed to print. So I took the blender file he provided and modified it until it worked on my Makerbot Replicator 2. Essentially all I did was make the holes a little bigger and thickened all 4 sides.


  1. load the stl file into makerware
  2. Press print (I used 0.2mm thickness and 100% fill)
  3. Use solid copper wire and wire your desired pins to your breadboard
  4. Attach to Raspberry Pi (can be a bit snug)
