Great case design. Is there any chance that you would adapt the bottom piece for a Pi 3B+?

Could the someone please supply a list of the items required to complete the build and general instructions on how it is to be wired?
Knowing what parts are required would help to decide if I want to build one.

What size fan is used on this?

Spacing between adjacent screws is 52MM and across (farthest two apart) is 72mm, I posted a picture here: https://goo.gl/photos/MXYxjWtzWY3TGkgA6

It's a nice case for certain....!

I printed this at 20% infill and 0.2 layer height with no supports or rafts and it looks AWESOME!!!!!!

It came out very very well. I had to use a needle file to clean up the 'bridged' gaps for the USB, HDMI and Ethernet ports. But that was purely for aesthetics. It works perfectly and the fan at the top keeps the board very cool even while running graphics heavy games and without a heat sink installed too.

I used a 5v fan but its now running off the 3v pins as it sounded like a jet when it was on the 5v pins. Now its quiet enough and also keeps the board cool.

I put 3 little self adhesive rubber feet on the bottom to let the air flow through and out.

I am very much looking forward to your NUC board version so i can build a banging hackintosh.

Thank you for sharing the files and taking the time to design this.

Now hurry up with the NUC version! hahaha!!
Thanks again!

This thing needs an adapter that can hang over the top (or holes in the board plate), and put a SSD or some sort of mass storage device (mSATA?? heck a 2.5" w/ a SATA to USB adapter would probably fit) on the back side where the RPI isn't sitting..this thing is wasting so much usable space. Very cool non-conventional looking case though, neat design!

This is superb! I have so far printed the Mid section and im in the middle of printing the other 2 bits.

Are you sure that the 300mm hdmi extender cable is the correct length? it seems a bit massive? Just wanted to check before i buy it.

I havent got a raspberry PI yet but due to your design, i will be buying one haha

Hi there,
Any chance of getting the original design files for this? I'd love to separate a few of the pieces out to make it print better. :)

Hello,
I would like to print this case but I have a Raspberry Pi B v1.
Is it possible to modify the case to make it compatible?
Thank you.

I posted my print but I figured I'd leave some feedback in the comments. First of all, awesome design! I think that this gives my Pi a more substantial feel and look, people are always asking about it since I have it sitting on my desk.

Just a few issues/ideas that I'd like to share. The border to the left of the USB ports is too thin and will easily snap if I grab there, but there is some clearance from the USB ports to the border, so that making those parts thicker shouldn't be an issue.

Your fan grill is awesome, and the design should be easily duplicated or improved, you should consider designing one onto the top of the mid section. Also, if you flip the orientation of the mid section, it'll print without supports holding up the middle overhang.

I think the power button would print better if it were an impression, but maybe not.

Another idea might be to have slanted slots on the opposite side of the Pi for extra microSD cards. Lots of possibilities! :P

Have you ever downloaded someone else's design that they shared here, and printed it? Did you notice that the designs here are shared?

I cant believe people are liking this, and you didn't even share it.

As you can see from my description this is work in progress. The files will be shared publicly once the design is finished.

I would love to get this. This is awesome!

The design is still work in progress, I can share the files with you if you are happy to print and help develop this case. Sketch up was used to produce this STL.

One of the things that needs looking at is securing the shell to the base, but also being able to insecure the shell when needing inside access.

i would print it out and let you know
