, I laser cut this today at work. It’s an enclosure…. dujoducom writes –

I laser cut this today at work. It’s an enclosure for my Raspberry Pi ($35 ARM linux computer). The overall design was created by Adafruit Industries and you can find it on their website for $14.95. Adafruit is awesome, so they also released the design files under creative commons and posted them on thingiverse. Thing is, they designed it for 1/8” acrylic and I only had 1/10” (actually closer to 0.085”). Thankfully CaseyB on thingiverse already made a derivative for thinner acrylic which saved me quite a bit of time. The logo wasn’t working for me, so I did have to re-create that. Overall the file modification, cutting, and assembly took less than 1 hour. I purchased a piece of 12” x 24” x 1/10” acrylic from usplastics.com for $6.64, and that is enough material to make 4-5 (maaaybe 6) enclosures. The pibow enclosure is probably a bit more attractive than this, but you can’t really beat $1.50 and and one hour of time.


Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit, be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Have you tried the new “Adafruit Raspberry Pi Educational Linux Distro” ? It’s our tweaked distribution for teaching electronics using the Raspberry PI.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
