My Case Design

Tue May 22, 2012 6:24 pm

Hey guys! I was finally able to order a Raspberry Pi this morning, and decided to make a quick case design. I have access to a 3D printer at work, so hopefully I'll be able to print this up in the next couple of weeks.

However, since I haven't received my unit yet, I can't be sure the dimensions I have are accurate. I downloaded the files from here:

http://solidworksbootcamp.com/raspberry ... enclosure/

And used the PCB models to base my design on. Has anyone done something similar? Can you vouch for the accuracy of those PCB models? Also, if you notice any other obvious problems, please let me know (for example, if any of the ports are recessed too deep). Running the 3D printer is expensive, so I'd like to get this right the first time! Thanks!

Hi,

I draw the PCB with production Pi Boards measurements thanks to a digital caliper (http://freakyshape.com/raspberry-pi-boa ... ical-data/). My measurements are accurate and I verified them with my 3D printed case from shapeways (here some pictures of the Pi board inside the case : http://www.shapeways.com/model/565087/r ... -case.html).

Thanks for the information!

It looks like it should be close enough to print. Hopefully I won't have to make too many modifications!

Hi ZeroGSpaceCow, love your design!, would you be willing to make another, if so what would you sell it for?.

Do you plan to make the design open source or can we purchase a license to use it?
