This is my first console design for a Raspberry Pi case modeled after the Nintendo Wii. Just like the Wii, it has a door at the top to hide and access the USB and Ethernet ports.
To assemble the parts, you’ll need four M3 screws that are 10-12mm long to attach the Pi mount and the USB port covers to the shell. You’ll also need four M2.5 screws that are 5mm long below the head. This part is important since the tolerances on everything is a little tight. Speaking of tolerances as well it’s important to print the door with little infill so it can flex in to place, if you’re having trouble, try something like nylon or PETG instead.

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!
