In this project, we’re going to make a DIY monitor using an 7″ HDMI display backpack and a 3D printed enclosure.
This display monitor is very helpful as a second display for a computer, camera and of course a Raspberry pi. The Adafruit HDMI 7″ display backpack features an integrated mini display driver that is great for DIY projects. It’s fully assembled, works with any HDMI device and includes mounting tabs for easily attaching to a surface.
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!
