This is a case I modeled loosely after the style of the electronics case of a Prusa i3 model printer. The problem I was trying to solve had to do with needing to place a fan on the Pi for use inside my printer enclosure.
You will need to pick a bottom and a top to print. The differences in the bottoms have to do with how the case will mount. The different top versions have more to do with how the case is ventilated. The FAN mount top includes a recess to accept a 30x30x8mm standard Pi fan. There is also a passive ventilated top, and a top with no ventilation as well.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
