As I'm sure many of you know the Raspberry Pi launched a few weeks ago (www.raspberrypi.org). As the initial units will ship without a case I decided to make one.
The case was modelled using Pro Engineer CAD software and then rapid prototyped by a company in the UK (more about that later).
One disclaimer before we start - I'm currently on the huge waiting list to get a raspberry pi so this case has been designed around the official dimensions for the device. Until I get my hands on one of the units I'm unable to guarantee it will actually fit.
Step 1: What is the Raspberry Pi?
"The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It’s a capable little PC which can be used for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video. We want to see it being used by kids all over the world to learn programming."
