A case for the Raspberry Pi optimized for the MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer.

The MakerBot Design Team made special enclosure designs for three of the most popular kits from Adafruit, the leader in DIY electronics projects. The Raspberry Pi, TimeSquare, and MintyBoost kits are all available for a limited time in the MakerBot Store in NYC.

Assemble the kits and make your own enclosures on your MakerBot.

See the Rapberry Pi kit from Adafruit here: https://www.adafruit.com/products/998


Pop the Raspberry Pi into the inner case. Slide on the outer case, then slide on the clamp and add the light. Clamp may require a bit of glue at the bottom.

For best results, print in PLA with the following settings:

Inner and Outer Case
Infill = 10
Layer Height = .2
Shells = 2

Infill = 10
Layer Height = .2
Shells = 2

Infill = 0
Layer Height = .2
Shells = 50

Why 0% infill and 50 shells for the light?

I seem to be getting an error on the inside case from ReplicatorG(034). The other pieces generated ok. The error occurs just after the jitter process. Skienforge fails with a divide by zero error.

", line 1865, in isWithinChannel
[12:31:02] behindSegmentComplex /= behindSegmentComplexLength
[12:31:02] ZeroDivisionError: complex division by zero
[12:31:02] Unrecognized error code returned by Skeinforge.
[12:31:02] Toolpath generation failed!

Any clues or a fixed version of the case? I'm using a Replicator with dual extruders.

Where is the source file? How to edit this?

It looks a bit like marzipan in that pic.

Why PLA is better than ABS for this case?

There is no reason it would be a problem with ABS, but you're talking to businessmen here: the "MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer" only prints PLA so PLA is better for you ;)

Hm, does this "Raspberry Pi optimized for the MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer" mean you need a brim on such a big box? It is counter productive imho. Now, it adds to the fact that the description sounds like plain advertising, and that the thing gets featured while having so few likes... What's the deal behind?

Please do keep thinks sorted and think about the community! Hearing this and not being a "MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer" owner makes me feel I post my stuff at the wrong place once again.

BTW you also forgot the tags ;)

Well said. What does "optimized for the MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer" mean anyways?

Also kind of weird that the print quality look so bad...

Very pretty.

What was it modeled in? It would (to +1 the other comments) be great to have the source so that we can tweak the design.

Nice looking case. If you could upload the .scad files, it'd sure help in making a version with accessible gpio ports. Thanks!

you forgot to remove your Brim from the design, please update

also you forgot to upload the .scad files for this
