Here’s a preview of something we’re working on, a 3D printed case for Adafruit PiTFT!


As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.

  1. Awesome… Sign me up!

  2. Bonus points if the new case supports micro-SD adapters, such as the one you sell — you don’t have to be able to insert/remove the micro-SD in the adapter, just have enough clearance in the case so the micro-SD in an adapter can be used and the Pi board still sit properly in the case.

    Looking forward to using this case, or one like it!

  3. Very nice. If each case is made on demand please provide customization options so you can select for example not to have the button holes, NTSC/hdmi output etc. or perhaps an option to make the case deeper so an input/output board of some type can be added. Say, I’d like an extra inch added in the back, or two. I’m not talking about having a set of available designs, but a customized design generated on the fly and printed.

  4. I’ve been looking forward to this since I purchased my PiTFT and Cobbler Kit.

    I must echo Bob’s comment about the micro SD card adaptor. It would be great to use the low profile Adafruit micro SD adaptor board that I purchased with this case (I didn’t realise it would be such a tight fit in the Pi Box…I should have researched first, but I was just too excited 😉 ). Other than the button holes on the wrong side, which I’m certain you’ve already noticed, it looks great. Don’t forget the slot on the side for the GPIO cable on the SD card slot side though!

  5. Exactly the design I was hoping for. Excellent job!
