PiStation: the raspberry pi case for my retropie project. I give credit to “jhample” for the core design of this project because I used his design as a model for my own. This is a completely rebuilt model that can accept a 30mm cooling fan and a small power button. The logo has been updated to reflect the playstation theme. The case has been split up into three pieces for printing without supports. The lid and top can be glued together or acetone welded if using ABS. I opted to use PLA in later iterations. The bottom half has 1/4″ cutouts for rubber mounts. The fan uses the PiStation text cutout as a intake and exhausts to right side vents. This was designed using autodesk inventor ’16 and sliced in slicer prusa edition / prusa control. I have included some wiring diagrams that I used for the project.
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.
