Introduction: Custard Case

About: I am a full time product designer who spends far to much time at the weekends in my shed trying to invent things!

The Raspberry Pi is a fantastic new product that hopefully bump starts a whole wave of British engineers, both young and old! The cool thing (from my point of view) is the first batch at least won't have a case, therefore with the aid of a 3D printer you can have your own custom case design!

I have designed my "Custard" case which features an organic look! The dimensions are 70mm wide x 97mm long x 36mm high so it is really compact and comes in two pieces.

The 3D case can be ordered from Shapeways here or 3D print your own from the downloading the file "3D Print Custard Case for Raspberry Pi.STL"

****I have updated the CAD file with the missing USB power as well****

Step 1:

The case can be 3D printed (SLA, SLA, etc). The Raspberry Pi PCB simply wedges on a ledge between both parts which are snap fitted together. I have made a YouTube video showing the case in more detail here;

An A4 PDF can be downloaded below which provides more details on the size of the 3D print.
