Would it be possible to get this split into three separate files, one each for keyboard, case, and top? I wanted to try making a couple changes but the file is just a tiny bit too large to import into TinkerCAD, and the STL importer for SketchUp just isn't having this file.


Done. the three parts are smaller and should be easier to manipulate in an STL editor.

Comments deleted.

how do you print this? I can't get any supports set to print the lid......

Will the Raspberry Pi 2 fit in this?

Thanks. :)

Yes. You need the updated version of the base part. This model is the upper part of the case.

For the B+ or Pi 2:

Hahahahahaha. That is what I said when I first saw this. It was in a good way though, ok. I am very surprised that someone took the time to make this. Honestly it is cool but I wouldn't spend my money on making that. It is still a neat thing to have though. Keep building things like this.

Lovely. Ohh, I'd love to see an SD card reader built into the disk drive.

I'm working on a Monitor // to fit - with a display from Adafruit and swiveling bezel.

Now all we need is the Sanyo monitor that was sold with most Apple IIe
