Young maker builds 7″ Raspberry Pi Tablet

While catching up on Twitter, we saw a retweet from Pimoronmi from Grace Owolade that quickly caught our attention.

Femi, a young maker, built our 7″ Raspbbery Pi Tablet project and wrote a blog post about his build process. We’re extremely chuffed to read about his experience and it really made our day. Read his blogpost for all the details. Thank you Femi and Grace for sharing and being awesome!

BUILDING A PI TABLET USING NEW RASPBERRY PI TOUCHSCREEN DISPLAY & 3D PRINTING

This was an epic project for me and my mum. There was a lot of excitement around the new touchscreen display for the Raspberry Pi and I really wanted to get hold of one…Although it adds up to be a little costly – it has given me, as well as my parents, an invaluable learning experience of 3D printing and building electronic devises. Every time I pick it up, I feel a real sense of ‘pride and wonder’ that we didn’t just buy this from the shops but produced it ourselves. I would really recommend this project but be warned, it is quite challenging especially for newbies like us.

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!
