I’ve been working at the All Hands Active Hacker Space in Ann Arbor a lot recently for my Raspberry Pi project I’ve been working on. I got to the point where I really needed to secure my project into its enclosure so that it would stop moving around. One of the guys there (Mike) who was well versed in OpenSCAD, which is an open source alternative to CAD. He helped me design a piece.
We kept the settings on low since it was a test run, but I was pretty surprised by how solid the part we built was. The conversion software was even smart enough to fill in the gaps with an easier to break plastic filling, so that the device wouldn’t collapse under its own weight.
I don’t have a picture of the part yet, but once we get it fully designed and fitting properly, I’ll upload some pictures as well as the file. This part simply holds onto the end of the Raspberry Pi which has a USB and RJ45 port, providing some screw holes on the bottom.
