Raspberry Pi Zero Case #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Shared by Ajaxjones on Thingiverse:

This is my Pi Zero Case designed mainly to hold my Pi Zero W , but also works with the normal Pi Zero as well with wifi dongles.

Its designed to allow the Pi to just slide in and the power cord keeps it in place. As it uses a sleeve to hold the Pi it also means it is quite robust and doesnt break mounting lugs and also does not neeed screws or bolts to hold it in.

In addition, the top can take a Neopixel LED ring for added shazam and a rotary encoder as well if you want to have some input.

I’ve managed as well to fit an I2C audio amp and rectangular speaker inside as well. It all prints easily and the only trick is that i have printed the LED diffuser in PETG with 0% infill.

If you just want it as a case, then you can omit the light ring and I will be adding a knob replacement that is a snug fit so that it all fits nicely.

Hope you like it and it makes a change from the standard flat rectangles.

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!
