Build a Twin Raspberry Pi B+ “Rack Case” @Raspbery_Pi #piday #raspberrypi

FE3NMW1HXMUZY3X MEDIUM

This tutorial from Instructables user RichSchumaker shows you how to build a simple rack case for you new Model B+:

So I have built and bought several Raspberry Pi cases.

Before I could get a RasPi I owned several high quality paper cases.

Once it came out I graduated to cardboard, leather, Legos, and purchased cases.

I would buy a Pi and create or buy a new case.

I just received the new RasPi Model B+ so I started a case search.

While searching I remembered I bought some nylon screws and nuts for the Pi camera, they were the wrong size(d’oh!!) so I threw them in the ‘pile of stuff to use later’.

  1. While there are plenty of cases around, it’s nice to see some starting for the new B+ model. However, as long as you are just starting the case design, can I ask for something?

    I’d like a case with… (drumroll) a built-in, mains driven, power supply.
    The new B+ uses less power they claim, so a compact supply should be all that’s needed.
