Summary

Greetings! Got your hands on one of the Raspberry Pi Foundation's new 7" touchscreen display modules? Need something to prop it up when you're using it in on your desk or in your project?

The Raspberry Pi Guy has got you covered! I have designed a slip-in stand for the display - simply print it out on your 3D printer and place the bottom of your display into the slot. The Raspberry-Pi-logo shaped stand will keep your touchscreen display up securely and safely, with plenty of clearance on the back for other add ons and HATs.

See it in action in my release video! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k7byf2h_bT8

NOTE: the Raspberry Pi logo is a trademark of the Raspberry Pi Foundation. I would like to thank them for their generosity in letting me use it for this display stand. You can read more about their trademark rules here: https://www.raspberrypi.org/trademark-rules/

Instructions

I printed my display stand in blood red PLA on an Ultimaker 2 with the following settings:

Layer Height: 0.1mm
Shell Thickness: 0.8mm
Print Speed: 50mm/s
Travel Speed: 150mm/s
Infill Density: 18%
Cooling Fans: Enabled

This prints without the need for any supports and on my Ultimaker 2 took around 4/5 hours to do so.

Is your display the wrong orientation for the stand? Try this helpful suggestion from "fredmon3":

In /boot/config.txt you can add a line that says:

lcd_rotate=2

Using 'display_rotate' won't also rotate the touches detected on the screen to match so be sure to use "lcd_rotate".

Printed like a charm. Sized to fit on my small volume M3D. Thanks.

Surely 3D printer is the wrong way to go for that kind of stand. Far quicker just to get a block of almost anything and cut a suitable groove in it.

Is there any chance you could give me the link to the USB cable you're using from between the Pi and the display controller?

I loved this stand until the latest firmware update turned the screen upside down (right way up apparently) and the slot is too deep to suit the screen flat cable now :(

In /boot/config.txt you can add a line that says:

lcd_rotate = 2

Using 'display_rotate' won't also rotate the touches detected on the screen to match so be sure to use "lcd_rotate".

this didn't work for me until i took the spaces out and made it

lcd_rotate=2

That sounds like it makes sense and was probably just a formatting issue of this website. I have changed my advice in the object description!

Excellent excellent excellent point!

I know! It's a nuisance that it has been changed - I currently do not have a 3D printer handy and so I am not able to change my design accordingly at the moment!
