I made this for a new Raspberry Pi 3* (upgraded my Octoprint server), but it should also work with a Pi 2 and Pi B+ too. It has a larger cutout for the microSD card slot which isn't spring loaded on the Pi 3. Octoprint on the new Pi 3 is much more responsive, but I don't know how much of it is the faster Pi or the updated OctoPi image which no longer runs the GUI.

The case prints vertically in one piece without support, and needs to be bent slightly to slide over the Raspberry Pi.

Love the look and simplicity of this, but I'm confused about printing it w/o supports, I'm seeing some floating items in the top when I slice it.


Or is the STL just upside down?

This is why you're one of my favorite 3D printing designers.

You often find an elegant, less-evident approach!

That printing orientation is really novel, I like this design and its style a lot.

Do you mount this to a 2020 Alu frame? Have you designed a case/adapter that can be mounted on 2020 profiles?

It's kinda disappointing that RPi3 doesn't have spring loaded microSD slot.

For 2020, I'm using this case - https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:943567, with the cover modified to add flanges - https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1092438
