This is a case for the Raspberry Pi Adafruit 2.8" PiTFT.
It works for both the Raspberry Pi A+ and B+.
Requires no tools for assembly. Just laser cut all of the parts and snap it together.

You can find the instructions here:

If you don't have a laser cutter, you can grab one of these cases from our store here:

Could you please make a similar one for 3.5" with touch for Raspberry Pi.

Thank you for such good work and share.

Thanks for the great work on your design! I translated your work into STL files here...

Raspberry A+B+ Case re-mixed for 3D print (with or without LCD screen)

Is this compatible with the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B?

We've got a B2 coming in the mail this week to test out. Our initial guess is that everything will fit.

Did you ever find out if this will fit the pi2?

Yes, it does work with the B+2!

Sweet, ordering now! Thank you!

Hi there! Thanks so much for sharing this. Would you have the STL files for this by any chance? I also recently bought the 2.8" PiTFT screen, but it's not working. Please let me know if you have any advice on which OS image I should use to get it to work.

Unfortunately we do designs in 2D CAD tools so it's rather time consuming to convert these to 3D printable parts. You can do it yourself with many 3D tools by breaking up the 2D drawing into DXFs of each piece, importing them, then extruding them to 0.118" or 3mm thickness.

As for running the screen, I haven't gotten to play around with it much. I'm just using the image Adafruit supplies.

Yes, have been thinking about taking that route - importing the DXF files and extruding them. Might try it! Thanks for the suggestion.

Do you mind explaining which Adafruit image you're using? I've tried using the B+ compatible image found here (https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-pitft-28-inch-resistive-touchscreen-display-raspberry-pi/easy-install), but had no luck. I just copy and paste the image file onto the microSD card right? Do I need to complete any steps after that? Screen light comes on, but it's blank and no image. Any advice/direction would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

No, you'll need to burn the image to the card:

Thanks so much! Was able to get it to work.
