Is there an 3D model, ideally an STL file, available for the official Raspberry Pi Zero case?

I'm not looking to print my own case, rather I want to create a mounting clip for it so that I can print a gooseneck mount so that I can position the Pi Zero & camera module.

  • Thought about using the 3M Command strips designed for hooks, pictures etc? These can be pulled off when you need. Details fir the UK versions are command.3m.co.uk/3M/en_GB/command-gb/hooks-strips – Andyroo May 2 at 22:51
  • Thanks @Andyroo, I had seen these used on an Adafruit project - I think they could work but I'd still like to be able to print a clip / mount for the case. – Alex Holsgrove May 3 at 8:24

Neither RPF or RPT have released STL files under the CC licence they detail here.

They have given mechanical drawings for most things in the hardware section of the documentation (here) and you can find the details of the Zero case and the camera lid within there (though the lid has no details of the hole placement or size).

As these are injection mouldings, I think you are going to end up looking for 3rd party 3D printed cases rather than the original. If this is for a child’s room, I would build one from Lego :-)

  • Thanks Andy. I did find those drawings before coming to ask my question, but as you say they lack some of the details I'd need. I think as you suggest I'll look for a 3rd party model and use that to build the mounting bracket that I need. It's actually a camera project for a pet mouse! Thanks again – Alex Holsgrove May 3 at 17:18
  • No probs. Good luck - at least your is caged - I’m after squirrels and robins at the mo! – Andyroo May 3 at 21:18
