I use one of my Raspberry Pis to runs the @_StormWatch twitter bot as well as some other automated tasks. For a few months it’s been sitting on my desk bare so it was long overdue for a case. I took a look at the available cases and nothing jumped out at me so I designed my own.
I spent some time thinking about interesting geometries, something functional that isn’t just another rectangular box.
The model of the Raspberry Pi 2 B is from GrabCad.com. I used it as a reference for the size of the case and the location of ports and mounting holes.
Luckily I had a nice combination of filament colors on hand. The top is white Inland PLA from my local (1hr away) MicroCenter, and the bottom half is the Clay Red 5 Dollar Filament from ProtoParadigm.com. They have a great choice of colors, and the price makes it easy to grab a variety without having to buy full 1kg spools.
I’m super happy with how it came out.
