*Raspberry Pi 3 compatible.

Grab a kit of this case from our store or grab the design files if you want to make your own or modify it!

This Case is designed to work with both the A+ and B+ models of the Raspberry Pi

Step 1: Remove the Masking

All of the acrylic components have a brown paper masking on them. You will need to remove it to make the parts fit together nicely. It is best to start at a corner.

    Is there any way I can score another USB/Ethernet side? Mine fell off while I was trying to snap the pcb into the side panel and broke into pieces

  2. Craig says:

    Sure thing! Also, sorry about not getting back to you sooner, we’ve been bad about checking the blog and WordPress has been less than helpful about letting us know when there’s comments to reply to as of lately.

    Craig –
    I finally had a chance to get my Adafruit plate soldered up and put in one of the cases you sent. I really like the case! I did have a comment/suggestion. The buttons close to the edge of the case (especially the button) are a bit difficult to press. Any chance the buttons could be made longer, or the sides of the case above the top not go quite as high (at least in the area close to the buttons)?

  4. Craig says:

    We could possibly make the buttons bigger by using some thicker acrylic and we might try and recess the sides in future revisions to make things easier. Thanks for the feedback!

  5. Don says:

    Does the case work with a raspberry pi 2?

  6. Craig says:

    Yes! We’ve tested it with the Raspberry Pi B+ 2 and it fits just as well as the B+.

    I recently purchased this and I love the case, but one of the white derlin clips came broke at the bottom. I was still able to get it to work but the main problem I’m having is that the top doesn’t work with the adafruit lcd v2. The buttons are in the wrong placement on the top. Maybe make another version for the v2 lcd?

  8. Ryan says:

    I’m sorry please disregard the message from above. Apparently I didn’t realize it but the lcd kit I purchased wasn’t an adafruit kit. Perhaps making a modified version with another open slit on the sides to make room for the tabs. I can send a picture as an example if you’d like.

  9. Julian Rodriquez says:

    There are a lot of different variations on LCDs, so it is difficult to accommodate them all, but we can certainly take a look at it and see what we can do.
