3D-Printed Death Star Enclosure for Your Pi 3 | #StarWars #enclosure #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
This is a cool case from Furnibird on MyMiniFactory – the enclosure is pretty simple and could easily be developed upon with internal or external accessories and designs (think blinking lights or audio files that play when you do something in the OS):
Maker Darren Furniss, who goes by the username “Furnibird” online, has created a created a 3D printed Death Star to house a Raspberry Pi 3.
When we spoke to Furniss he told us that the print was created in Fusion 360, a programme he learnt from watching YouTube tutorials.
The design process took three weeks and had to incorporate some kind of closing mechanism. Instead of a hinge on one side, the top and bottom sections slide lock into place. Some screws are required to keep everything together, including the stand which is needed to stop your Pi rolling away.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
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.
