Pocket PiGRRL Build by Thomas James #3DPrinting

Thomas James made a sweet build video of his Pocket PiGRRL on YouTube.

This is a quick video showing my build of the Adafruit kit, Pocket Pigrrl. I 3D printed all the parts on my Flashforge Dreamer 3D printer at 100 micron layer height! I used PLA for the case and A,B,X,Y buttons. Then I used RED ninja flex for the menu buttons and black ninja flex TPE for the D-Pad.

This is just using the downloadable image from the adafruit site but I installed the “Simple” theme from emulation station. I had to resize the “blurred” images to 320×240 for them to work otherwise the 720p images wouldn’t load.

I also installed a 5K variable resistor (Linear) for volume control and printed a volume wheel and cut out a section of the case. Works perfect!

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!
