In this Instrucable I want to show you how you can build your own portable rasperry pi!
Something to measure things very exactly
a Rasperry Pi
a LCD screen (7 inch or so)
3D Printer ( or you let it print from companies)
The very special thing of the RasPi is, that you can customize it like you want. So you can add Wifi or give him a software upgrade. Its up to you!
So lets getting started :)
note: it isnt a instruction which tells you all things what you have to do! its more a guide who tells you the way to build it! So you have to do all of the other work.
please leave a little comment with a short feedback! that would help me a lot!!
Step 1: Basic Shapes (of the Top)
First open 123D Design and scetch in some rectangles, circles etc. to get a 2D layout from your RasPi. We will start with the top of our gaming console. That is the first step to get a great solution, because without a basic scetch, you dont have anything to build on.
Beware that you have to put in the right dimensions from your measurements, which you made before (for example from the screen or so).
IMPORTANT: This is the layout from my project. Please keep always in mind that you will have diffrent components with diffrent dimensions!
Step 2: Adding More and More
If you have your basic concept, you can go on to add little things in your 2D scetch, which will be important for the structure in the 3D model (for examples holes for screws or so)
Step 3: Going Into 3D
now we can go into basic 3D moddeling. Just make some structures where you can keep building on.
Always check your dimensions and measure again and again!
Step 4: Finish the First Part
Now we can finish the entire part (so far)
In this Step is added just the last missing structures
Step 5: The Bottom Part
You remember? we just need 2 parts. The top and the bottom
We finished the top so we can keep on with the bottom part! But how? it is very simple.
just take your 2D scetch and delete all the things you dont need. The result is a perfect 2D scetch where you can keep on and it fits perfectly into the other part!
to finish the product, just repeat the steps before! It is always the same way.
Well i think thats the end of this instrucable so far! more updates will come soon!
i hope you enjoyed it!
