The AMIGAPI 1000 is an (almost) exact 3:1 scale model of an Amiga 1000 for your Raspberry Pi + 2.5" hard drive + SD extension + 30 mm fan (of course you can just as well use it for your Pi only).
I think it makes a great case for the RPi but even more it is a homage to the original design. I still find it amazing how much computer power one can fit in such a small case today - as compared to the original Amiga (which was an absolutely amazing piece of hardware in its time). The floppy drive works (kind of, I only tried micro SDs, not sure about 3.5" floppies), even the RPi status LEDs are visible through the hole for the floppy LED.
Here is what you need in addition to the printed parts:
- Raspberry Pi 3 B+ (but basically any full size model will do)
Everything else is strictly optional:
- SD Extension (micro SD/TF to micro SD/TF - the shorter the cable, the better).
- Sata to USB controller - not sure this one will fit. Preferably a built-in controller from an external drive (most compact). Whatever model you use, make sure it is small enough to fit the case.
- A SATA 2.5" hard drive if you don't have an old one lying around (1 TB seems like a massive overkill - my first Amiga HD had 20 MB and it seemed like this would provide infinite storage space)
- 30 mm cooling fan - use one of the screws for the case.
RPi, hard drive, SD extension, and fan should clip in without requiring any screws. Also the cover. However, I have added a single screw at the back of the case to keep it in place (I used one of the M2.5x14 screws that came with the 30 mm fan).
The case is simple to print (in 3 pieces), assemble, and should not require any supports (however, bottom and top should be printed upside down). Use a few drops of glue to attach the bottom part (put in the fan first, makes it easy to fit the two pieces together).
The SD extension slides into the slot (you may need a drop of glue to fix it there) and the cable goes in the space below. There is a hole at the back of the bottom for the USB cable to connect the HD controller to one of the RPi USB ports (my controller is from an old external HD which has a mini USB connector at the side and perfectly fits when the HD is turned upside down).
Hope you like it. Have fun and please let me see your makes!
And of course, enjoy life and be careful with whatever you do. No warranty whatsoever. ;-)
