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!
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.
