Introduction: Raspberry Pi Case

I made this case before my school offered 3d printing but i still decided to post it anyway.

Step 1: Materials

These are the materials youll need
.• A block of wood
• Acrylic
• Raspberry pi
• Screws
• Nuts
• Spacers

Tools
• Caliper

• Knife

Step 2: Drilling

Drill 4 holes in the block try to be a straight as possible as shown above is the hole size

Step 3: Making the Hole

use you router and cut a space for the RPI to fit then try it out

Step 4: Cut the Acrylic

Sorry for no picture but i cut the acrylic to to the bottom for the same size

Just put the crew in the holes put the raspberry pi add the space put on the acrylic and use the nuts to tighten it

    Your instructable inspired me to build my arduino case, since arduinos are less whiners with the power supply I made a hollow cavity on the wood to store the 9 V battery and some utilities, I keep it closed with an aluminum plate and some screws.

    It also has a switch for convenience

    I recommend you to paint it black with a very thin layer of paint to highlight the wood grain, that way imperfections are more subtle.

    Also I would try to use a different kind of wood, my trick is, if you have a very sharp knife and while you carve the edge following the grain it breaks in fibers it isn't a good wood, the good ones leaves a clean cut with a complete shaving.

    Dang, I wish my school had a 3d-printer!

    I was going to make one just like this, but two bolts on each corner to hold the pi in place better.

    aeszok: I'm going to use your two screw suggestion for each corner.

    i have made two because i had two and i just got a new case that was 3d printed so i tried his comment with the two screws and it work just fine

    very kuhl. could you post some photos of the new version with 2 screws in each corner? Thanks very much.

    What holds the Pi in place? It seems like just pressure between the USB ports and the acrylic.

    yeah the pressure hold it down nice and i doesn't slip at all and i have two pies so ones in this case and ones in a 3d printed case
