This is an extra height version of Adafruit's Pi Box so that there is room to add a RaspyJuice board over the GPIO pins with extra slots for the servo leads and power leads to fit in.

The RaspyJuice is an 'add-on' board for the Raspberry Pi which makes it easy to power by battery and drive servos. See http://code.google.com/p/raspy-juice/ for more details.

I had it cut by http://www.razorlab.co.uk so the .svg file is on their template and design guidelines.

Based on:

Adafruit Pi Box - Enclosure for Raspberry Pi® Computers

I started from the Adafruit template (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:24461) and modified it for inkscape (to mm) as per the comments there. I extended the height and added some extra slots.

After having it laser cut in 3mm acrylic (http://www.razorlab.co.uk) it just slots together in the same way as the original (http://learn.adafruit.com/pi-box)!


There are a couple of issues with the current design template that I'll fix on next version:

  • The case is very tight, probably as a result of the conversion on import.
  • A couple of the new slots need adjusting in location slightly now that I've tried it with wires.
  • I haven't tried the text etching so was cut without.
