Summary

When Microsoft announced that Windows 10 would be arriving on the Raspberry Pi 2 in 2015 I became extremely excited at the possibilities that this would bring the maker community. To celebrate I wanted to design a case for the Pi 2 that incorporated the Windows 10 logo.

I decided to search Thingiverse before starting my design to see if anyone had beaten me to the punch as there is no reason to spend hours reinventing the wheel. To my delight, Thingiverse user jayftee had just released a new version of his Safe and Secure Raspberry Pi case. The Safe and Secure Raspberry Pi 2B Case included several different designs of which one incorporated the Windows logo.

This was perfect, except that it did not include any cutouts for easy GPIO access, or any provisions for ribbon-cabled accessories such as the Pi Camera. Luckily for me jayftee was kind enough to include the Sketchup .skp file in the thing's files. (Something everyone should do I might add) This allowed me to edit the case to fit my needs.

I added a cut out for the GPIO pins, and two slots for ribbon cable accessories. These are not extruded all the way through and a thin .5mm layer will need to be cut away for use. I did this because not everyone will need these slots, and those who do, can simply use an Exacto knife to remove the thin plastic.

I have also included my modified .skp files in the event someone needs to modify this design further.

Instructions

Print per your normal printing setup. I used .20 layer height, with an average printing speed of 70mm/sec.

Use Blue Hawk 4-40 machine screws no longer than 22mm in length.

Thanks chaps for all of the hard work that you've put in to creating this Pi case, the quality is beyond expectation and nothing short of excellent, as a professional Xamarin engineer using this product in my ordinary day-to-day engineering activities, I salute you!

.skp file has been uploaded!

Nice work. Now, we just need the damn Windows image to put on an SD card... ;)
