A Raspberry Pi case for a Raspberry Pi Plex server #PiDay @Raspberry_Pi

Chebe recently set up a Plex server on a Raspberry Pi 4 (Model B – 4GB RAM). It was working well, but the disparity in the weight of the small Pi, and that of the SSD drive, not to mention the surprisingly stiff cables, meant it would go flying all over the place. Seeing a cool case in the Pi SSD Media Server tutorial, they gave it a go.

The Rugged Metal Pushbutton with LED Ring – 16mm Momentary is really cool. It has a wonderful weight and texture, and the action on the button is very satisfying. I got one with a green LED. You need to visit the product page for the diagram of which pins are which, the tutorial doesn’t make it clear.

The 3D printed model files are pretty solid. I printed them here in the same filament (ROSA3D PETG Standard Light Green and ROSA3D PETG Standard Black) as the turntable. (Are you noticing a pattern yet? Just like with fabric, I try to use up what I’ve already started into.) The print-in-place handle is especially nifty.

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.
