These are additional parts for Gameboy Nano from Rasmushauschild.
One part is designed to hold the PCB with the small tactile switches and the OLED display.
The second part is to hold the Raspberry, the 500C PowerBoost from Adafruit and the small slide switch to power on/off the Pi. This last part is also proposed without the switch holder if you prefer using another one.
There is a third optional part which can be sticked using double sided tape on the first part (PCB and display holder). I don’t use it since my cables are a bit too long and take too much space.
I made my custom PCB which I sticked on my internal part using thick double sided tape. Then the whole set is screwed inside the front box part.
The Pi can be secured using a small M2x10mm screw with the corresponding nut. this is optional as the parts fit well together (I don’t use this screw).
Finaly, to close the box, use 2 M2x25mm screws at the bottom of the front and back side of the Nano and use 3 or 4 tiny drops of Super Glue on upper surrounding of main box part. The box should be easily openable though well closed for a normal day to day use (I use to store it it my pocket).
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!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to.

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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
