Raspberry Pi Mounting Hole Positions and Template #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Awesome resource for creating enclosures and cases for your Pi from the Raspberry Pi Spy. I’m definitely going to make use of this for my 3D-printed Raspberry Pi enclosures!
One of the improvements made to the Revision 2 board was the addition of two mounting holes. These give hobbyists some extra options when it comes to mounting the Pi. There are only two holes so care is still required to avoid putting the PCB under unnecessary stress but some holes is better than none.
The holes are 2.9mm and have been designed to accept 2.5mm (M2.5) screws or bolts. My local DIY store didn’t sell bolts this small so I ordered some off the internet….
