Total Dimensions of Pi2 + Touch Display

Sat Oct 29, 2016 9:44 am

Hello all,

I am starting a project that will deliver Pi kits to refugees.
I of course require packaging, and to order the packaging I require the exact dimensions of a Pi 2 joined on to a Touchscreen.
This includes the 'legs' that join the Pi to the screen.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

The Pi Project

Hi tinycld,

Are these the official RPi Foundation touchscreens or another brand?

Thanks,

https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentati ... /README.md has the display dimensions.
I've measured the standoffs themselves, and they appear to be 12mm (plus the thread).
Overall I agree with the total height of 20mm as given by the likes of Pimoroni, PiHut, and Element 14.
Screen Dimensions: 194mm x 110mm x 20mm (including standoffs)
(although the mechanical drawings show 192.96mm for the width of the lens)

The Pi2 max height is on the USB connectors, and is 18mm (confirmed from various posts around the web).

If you need more accurate measurements I'd suggest you buy the bits you need and measure it for yourself ;)
(The standoffs could probably be reduced to 9mm without the boards actually touching, but that would be a customisation).

3D data for official screen and raspberry in STEP, IGES and STL format are free available here:

you can use "freecad" to view it
