Introduction: Raspberry Pi B+ LEGO Case (Smaller Footprint)

Most Raspberry Pi Lego cases on the net had a 13x9 lego-dot footprint.

I wanted to make mine smaller.

I present to you the 12x9 lego-dot Rasperry Pi B+ LEGO Case.

It fits the board perfectly, no movement whatsoever!

You will need two unusual pieces - one of which I have never seen before (last photo on this page)

Step 1: More Photos

I tried to give a detailed photo of every important point.

The parts I used were the ones' I had, not the best for the job.

I'll try to meddle with the cover, maybe find some parts with holes in them for ventilation.

And maybe order parts to better colour-match the whole thing.

If there are any questions or anything that needs explanation or just a better photo - I'll be happy to help.

Good luck,

Dan

I also made my own version of it - in white, for the Raspberry Pi 2!

I included a "ladder" in the top of the case, to make it open for air to come in, but still kind of closed. I also made this little mechanism, making it easy to open. And then of course the 1x1 transparent brick that perfectly fits so you can see the lights.

Thanks for sharing this! :)

I don't recall seeing this done before, which kind of surprises me. It's such a great idea!

Hi, Thanks!
There are a number of Pi cases made out of lego,
most of them are not for the newer, B+ model, and all the ones' I have found are slightly larger.
The size annoyed me mostly because of the uneven number of lego-blocks (9x13), not because of the minor size difference.
I managed to get it down to 9x12
