Raspberry PI 3 Box – Big Passive Cooling #3DPrinting #3DThursday

Snille shared this project on Thingiverse!

This is a passive cooled (with a costume big 28mm x 28mm x 15mm heat sink) Raspberry PI 3 box with a “Clamp” on the long side. I did not find any box fasten this way and not along the long side. I used (a variation of) this on my “MagicMirror” project: https://photos.app.goo.gl/FUoiEjMmNBIay1Xk1

Note 1: The lid “pushes” on the heat sink (from the top) so it is always pressured down against the small plate, the plate is then pushed against the CPU so the heat transfers better.

Note 2: Remember to put some heat paste on both the CPU and the small plate.

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!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
