This is just a quick remix so that I can use my screens for testing on the desk before mounting them as instruments in the aircraft. The existing design was tippy so I added a foot at the back. I also increased the size of the top hole to get the USB C connector in for a Pi 4.
I haven’t bothered putting in screw holes for the bottom yet, or changing the front cover for the holes. It serves its purpose for now.
Just used Microsoft 3D builder to quickly add the bits.
20 Feb 2021: Added in a new front bezel along with the solidworks file. Put in screw holes at the bottom. Not worried about matching holes in the case, I just used a drill to match the holes with the cover top screwed in. Used 4 x 1/2″ wood screws. Again, this is just a quick remix to perform a function. I played around with text on the front bezel. Just used 3D builder and I used Simplify3D to create two processes. One for the front bezel and one for the text. At 0.1mm layer height, the break between the bezel and the text is 3.96mm.
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!
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.
