This is a snap-together case for a raspberry pi Zero W and attached IQAudio Pi Zero DAC plus Headphone Amp. Top and Bottom each take about 1.5 hours to print.
mount 1x M2.5/9mm standoff on post closest to USB power input, for later attachment to PI dac
use 3x M2.5/3mm machine screws to mount the Pi Zero. Pi Zero must have male headers
mount 3x M2.5/12mm standoffs from Pi DAC to Headphone Amp
Carefully mount the Pi DAC female headers on the mounted pi zero male headers
Insert top case mid-way over bottom, slide back and push down starting at RCA Connector (red/white jacks), then make sure all sides are pressed down firmly.
This is “kind of” a remix. I followed the tutorial on Layer-by-Layer from Adafruit (https://youtu.be/YxBamwc6s7U), drawing the featured simple raspberry pi zero case from scratch in Fusion 360. Then I added modifications to allow for the Pi DAC.

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.
