A stripped down basic "case" for Raspberry Pi.

I’m using this Pi as a development platform, and didn’t want to print a bulky case for it. I couldn’t find anything that fit what I was looking for so I designed this. It allows the Pi to be moved around easily without touching the board and contacts, and raises it off the ground about 6mm.


Print the 2 sides, composite and hdmi, then press onto the corresponding side on your Raspberry Pi. It will be snug and take some pressure get it to snap on, be gentle.

The corners at the end of the internal slots round off a bit during printing, and may need to be cleaned out with an x-acto to get it to fit.

These are very snug on my Pi. I’m not sure of the tolerances on the boards, but I’ve attached step files if anyone needs to change the openings slightly.

I printed at 10% infill, 2 shells, and .2mm layer height.
