I've looked on Thingiverse and didn't find a case to my liking, and that was after having to sift through all the original cases that were pretty cool. I guess the case designers havent gotten Pi B+ or Pi 2's?

Here are the things I am looking for in a case:

  • Fits the Pi B+ / Pi 2
  • VESA mount options
  • Screw mount options
  • Thick, sturdy walls
  • GPIO accessible from the top

Nice to haves:

  • Cable support
  • Cool design

I have not seen many examples of what I am looking for, but this is what I would consider a baseline for the older Pi generation:

Raspberry PI Case with Mounting

I printed the base of this one, but it needs some mounting options:

Raspberry Pi case (model B+)

I have a Printrbot LC that has a larger than normal print area, and I typically print in ABS. I haven't printed in a while, but I used to use Slic3r and Pronterface.

  • Could I ask why you arent modelling your own case? Personally, searching for things rather than doing them is a bit lame. – Matze Strawberrymaker Jul 11 '15 at 21:35
  • I certainly would like to. Is it that easy? As far as I can tell, I don't think it's that easy. I looked into some 3D modeling software and it's tutorials a while back and didn't get very far. I can't recall the name. Open something or other. It's just like with being a n00b on Linux: 3 seconds of work takes 3 hours of searching for commands and history because it's complicated and not explained so a n00b can understand it. – YetAnotherRandomUser Jul 11 '15 at 23:05
  • But making something by your own is the most funny part of 3d printing, rather than searching for things you need ^^ You may want to look at the video series "layer by layer" from adafruit or take a look at the 3d printing page in their learning system. Here is a tutorial for the raspberry pi . You really need to look at the part designs and how far their mounting holes are or how big they are etc. – Matze Strawberrymaker Jul 11 '15 at 23:17
