This is a simple case for the Raspberry Pi Zero. This two piece design features standoffs so you can solder on whatever you want, access to all GPIOs and cutouts for all ports of the pi (micro USB, mini HDMI and micro SD).

There are two versions :

  • The v1.2, for the raspberry pi zero without the camera port.
  • The v1.3, for the raspberry pi zero with the camera port.

The 0.4 versions have a 0.4mm tolerance, others have a 0.8mm tolerance to accommodate printers that have a harder time printing the 0.4mm parts.

If you have ideas for improvements feel free to leave a comment.

How I Designed This

This case for the Raspberry Pi Zero was designed using Fusion 360.

The measurements are from https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/hardware/raspberrypi/mechanical/rpi-zero-v1_2_dimensions.pdf

Love this case, great fit, would be nice if the holes were a little bit more of a tight fit, or maybe tabs so it snaps shut. I put just a dot of glue on each thought and it works great!

Thanks, I really appreciate your feedback.
I do know the design is loose, it's because I designed it for my printer (cheap prusa i3 clone) and I needed a 0.8mm tolerance so it could fit nicely. I will try to make a tighter fitting design for regular "good" printers.

Either that, or possibly a different plate that allows one to use screws? I'm printing on a Monoprice Makerselect v2 so still not a top of the line printer, but happy to test out additional designs ;)

I printed the current one in ABS, with 0% infill.

Comments deleted.

I just added the 0.4 files, tell me if that improves the fitting for you.
I might take the time to redesign this with tabs and maybe holes for screws in the coming weeks.
