As my first comment on any Thingiverse project, I gotta say this looks fantastic. Just what I was looking for. You're a man among men. Thank you!

It just works. Like the others, I had my doubts after the print. More sturdy than I imagined once I installed it. I wish I read the directions first but I put it together, but it all worked out. Thanks, Paul

Fits like a glove and as stated: surprisingly sturdy!

Works perfectly, thanks!

That fits like a charm, thank you very much!

You're welcome! :)

This is a very cool design idea! It felt weak and flimsy in my hands, but after assembly (and hearing that satisfying click of the RPi going in) it feels very solid!

Thanks

You're welcome! :)

Just wanted to say that I just got started in 3D printing, have been printing some basic stuff for my Anet A8, installed Octopi on my Raspberry Pi 3 and was looking for a way to mount. Was a little skeptical of this design due to how simple it is, but it works pretty amazing! It definitely holds sturdy and didn't require any screws or drilling or anything. It's a little hard to get it together at first, and there are only a few points it grabs the board without blocking ports, but I found the right spot and it's rock solid! Great work!

This worked out pretty well for me. The bottom of the shortest pieces is quite thin, but seems adequately strong when installed. The thinness of the pieces made them slightly challenging to print cleanly, but with a little cleanup they came out alright.

Installation was tricky; the clips weren't quite deep enough to clip around areas of the board with through-soldered components, and you have to steer clear of the USB power connector. I did find a spot where it all fit, though, and it feels really solid.

Among all of the other RPi mounting solutions for the A8, this one is by far the simplest. I love that it doesn't require any hardware, and that it uses minimal material.

"I love that it doesn't require any hardware, and that it uses minimal material." - Thanks! That was exactly my motivation for creating it. And also thank you for the feedback, I will have a look at the clips!
