One thing I knew for sure. I was not going to spend 10 euro for a nice and ready case for my raspberry pi. Certainly, I could better spend my money on, hmm let’s say 2 long islands or some fancy ouput capacitors or a P.I.L. Vinyl…
So I just got prepared, and I followed what the guy behind Moebius Linux did, you can find his original idea here.
1- A piece of plexiglass, or whatever material you wish to use
2- Some screws and spacers
3- 4 sylicone feets (also rubber is good)
4- Some tools, a dremel is suggested.
I started cutting 2 identical pieces of plexiglass with the dremel, the measure 10 x 7 cm approx. To get the borders pretty smooth I used some glass-paper. Then I made some holes in the corners, and two smaller holes where the Raspberry mounting holes are:
Now, let’s bond the Pi to the lower part of our case, and attach the screws:
Then, add your rubber feets ( I definetely suggest to use them, in order to make your Pi more stable on your desk\table\floor).
Et voilà, put the screws and the spacers, and you’re done!
This is mine, for comparison some healthy goods and the tiny ODAC. Joyful.
Really nothing special. But it’s easy to do, it’s pretty good looking and allows you to attach every peripheral you wish to the Pi.
DIY strikes again.
