3D printed Raspberry Pi organizer
After my first 3D-printing experiment “A 3D printed multi-functional tripod (well actually quadpod)”, I wanted to clean-up my desk. I have a lot of Raspberry Pi boards lying around for various test projects, and that was one of the quick-wins to organize better.
Designing additional elements
By importing the mount- and backplate-file in Tinkercad, I was able to design a holder for several Raspberry Pi’s and backplates for Raspberry Pi Zero — which is smaller — and Raspberry Pi V1 — without mounting holes.
I shared the design files as a remix of the project by Dimsch back on the Prusa website as “Raspberry Pi organizer”.
Printed elements and assembly
This is how the end result looks:
If you start from an exising project, always check the dimensions. In this case the mount has 3mm-holes for the screws to attach the Raspberry Pi, but that’s actually the width of the holes in the board itself. A screw of 2mm is a lot easier, so I needed to create little fillers for the holes because I only found out after printing 5 of them… Another point for the lessons-learned-list :-)
