Bonjour, très joli travail
serait il possible d'avoir un petit schéma électrique s'il vous plait ?

Why is there no spot for the micro usb plug? There are plenty of power supplies out now that can power a pi and a fan and even more!

Hi. Sorry for the late reply. The only powersupplies I found can supply max 2.5 Amps. Even if they have a max poweroutput of 7 or 8 Amps they provide max 2 - 2.5 Amps per USB connector.
If you want to tune the raspy to its max power, yuo have to use a powersupply without a micro usb connector. the easiest (and cheapest) way is to use one of these step down converters. These can supply outputs up to 5 Amps. So you have enough power for the Fan, LED lights and much more.
If you want to use the USB Plug, there are many other cases for the Raspi you can use. This one is designed to use a step down converter.

gibt es das gehäuse auch ohne das logo auf der rückseite? eine glatte fläche wäre mir lieber denn wenn ich das gehäuse in transparent neon drucke sieht das echt häßlich aus was der drucker da produziert. Gibt es die möglichkeit eine stl ohne das logo zu bekommen?

Hi, sorry wegen der späten Rückmeldung. Versuch es doch einfach mit dem 3D Builder von Microsoft oder Tinkercad. Dort kannst du einfach einen "Würfel" erstellen, etwas flach drücken und an der Stelle mit dem Gehäuse kombinieren.
Dann ist die Fläche geschlossen.

It would be nice to have a Connector (12V Einbaubuchse) for the power supply.

Hi, sorry for the late reply. Take it easy. Drill a hole :-)

I have a question: What is the Zwischenstück good for? Is it just a design feature or has it any function (like a seal)?

Hi, sorry for the late reply. It is only a design feature.

nice design, but the cover doesn't have holes for the screw in the stl file?

Hi. Yes, I designed the cover to be glued on, if someone wants to use the case without cover.
The top of the case will be screwed on from the bottom

You can also use any other power suppliy. For example old notebook power supplies with voltages up to 36v. Or you can use 9v power supplies from old toys etc.
You only have to look that the output is at least 1.5 amps.
When you use more than 12v please be careful with the cooling fan. You can use a 5v fan instead.

I really like it! :)
