EDIT: made some adjustments to the base model for a better fit...

I always planned on modeling a Atari2600 case for a pi,... I was about to start from scratch, when I did a search here on thingiverse... there were two models, one from a few years ago, and a new one that the bottom half was for the RPI3
I could have just used those models, but I wanted a bit more detail, and access to the SD card, (neither had that)..... so I remodeled the meshes back into solids, and made all the necessary resizing and adjustments... ....I also wanted more detail added to the faceplate, and wanted it easier to print, so I made it separate from the top.... I also wanted the top hollowed out for switches, LED's or whatever... one last detail I added was the RPI3 (atari logo) ..... anyway, I was hoping I didn't have to reinvent the wheel, but in the end I "kinda" did....

Thanks for the great case... just wondering, did anyone ever get the switches (power/on-off/etc) to work? ... I'd love to add that functionality, but am not sure where to start. Thanks

Printed last night and it is perfect! Excellent design, thanks for sharing!!!

That is an awesome design. Just what I need to put my Pi 3 in. I was a huge fan of the 2600 back in the day, it's the first console I ever got. I remember finishing Pitfall and sending a picture to Activision to enter a contest. Good memories. :) I guess that some type of wood finish Mactac would do the trick for the front panel. Is that what you used in the picture. It truly looks awesome. Great Job!

Just finished this for my Raspberry Pie. Lovely model and fits well together, see photos. Thanks HauntFreaks


I love this version and plan to make one rather than purchase an old console.

Can you tell me how you go the wood effect on the front and the silver on the buttons please? I presume the front has vinyl on it?

Also do the buttons do anything or are they just for show?

Thanks for putting the time in to create this.

Regards - Jason

Hi Jason first off I should thank you for thinking the rendered images are the genuine article....
but there just computer renderings of the design.... I personally wish 3D printing has gotten to the point of the quality in these renderings
but sadly I don't think we'll ever really see that day, and for sure not from a plastic squirter....

Ahhhh! I should've spotted that really as there's no print lines but in my excitement I just wanted to make one. I may get some vinyl for mine and look at a way to incorporate some switches.

Would it be possible to have the orange square around the buttons as a separate object so it could be printed in a different colour on 1 colour printers?

Thanks again for a great model and replying to my question.

I thought the same thing, that's the only reason I clicked on this model's thumbnail, to see how he did the woodgrain. Don't get me wrong, I love the model, I just don't have a Raspberry Pi so I don't (at this stage) have any need to go around clicking on Raspberry Pi Cases. I like it though none the less.

could you post some pics?

hey mate, I'm sending you the link in message.

That's lovely work. What did you use to design it? I'm guessing that the FreeCAD file I uploaded for the base wasn't much use... :-(

not true... all the files helped tremendously.... the bottom was the least of the issue.... getting that top and face plate how i wanted it was the real challenge.... a lot of the work was done in solidworks... plus free cad and fusion
