This laser cut Raspberry Pi enclosure design features light pipes for the status LEDs and obscures the T-slots for a nice clean looking enclosure.

All off board connectors are accessable with the top off and you can use standard ribbon cable connectors through the case to hook up the expansion header as well. Spacing of the top layers have been adjusted so these should be compatible with pi plates when they become availiable with minimal additional hardware.

The design has been updated to support both the models of the Raspberry Pi board (A & B) and include better standoffs. Updates thanks to Thingiverse user RoboLemur for the design updates.

Black acrylic kits are available here:

And a limited number of translucent purple acrylic kits are available here:


Cut on black lines, vector etch on red. Main enclosure parts are 3mm acrylic and the light pipe parts are 1.5mm acrylic and the new standoffs are 3/32" Delrin. Uses 4 M3-16 bolts for assembly.

Full instructions and additional pics are availiable on my site:

It would be easier to work with the dxf files and modify them if they were built with polylines instead of splines.

Why wont these DXF files open for me. I work in solidworks. And i use irfanview to view my dxf's. I get an error opening them in either of those programs. Any suggestions??

It's saved in R14 format so it should be compatible with just about everything. It opens up in LibreCAD, so you might load it up and export them in different DXF versions and see if that helps.

Why wont these dxf files open for me.

Sure would be nice if there was a momentary push button next to the hdmi hole connected to a 2.54mm female header for plugging into the P6 header...

Will this work with 1/8" instead of 3mm? Or is that essentially the same...?

If you get 1/8" acrylic it'll probably be 3mm. If you do happen to get true 0.125" thick acrylic you may have to make the slots a little bit wider.

Thanks, I made one today! No rPi yet, but I'll be ready when it arrives!

Hi, the case looks nice and cool that you share your design.

Don't you think you could do away with the screws by making the parts fit tighter together?

I've done so with wood and it work fine, rock solid!


Do you have your dxf files for your wood version up anywhere?

I made one in bright orange!! Thanks for a great case :)

Hi! Can you please post the eps for the light pipes? I think you accidentally posted twice the 3mm eps

I just uploaded it. Sorry I missed it the first time!
