Instructables

Step 7: Finished Product and Observations

So it turns out that the Raspberry Pi Type B board was not designed with Lego in mind from what I can tell. ;)  
Most Lego pieces are based on even numbers (at least the ones I wanted). The fact the outline was 9x13 in Lego profile made it hard to get a strong base which is why there are so many Plate levels.
You may find your RaspPi board fits tighter or more loose than mine. I put a flat 2x2 clear Plate* (see below) up on edge in the corner were the clear pieces are, squished between the wall and the board to stop the board moving when I put the SD card in or removed it. That is also the reason I used the Megaphone, to separate the USB ports and Ethernet port and hold the board in place. I had also had small 1x1 Plate pieces underneath to hold Board off the base but discovered they were not needed.
  

*1 – 1x2 Flat Plate            #3069  Clear
   or  2x2 Flat Plate            #3068  Clear

Update: I have changed the LDD files to another site as Minus is not cooperating.
Lego Digital Design .lxf file of the project and 4 other Cases I was working on. Stored on uploaded.net.



Really put a lot of time in this and am really looking forward to using my Raspberry Pi. Hope this is useful. 
Thanks to Acacia and Sprocket for their help.

Very good write up. I just found your post after throwing together my first pi lego case. I'm sure there will be more to come.
