We printed the piplus-teeth.stl
part in transparent PLA to give the enclosure a bit of transparency. White PLA would also work well. The piplus-teeth.stl
part will snap into the opening cut out in the piplus-top.stl
We recommend using adhesives to keep the teeth secured inside the enclosure part. This part has a fillet applied to the teeth, so they are not sharp and safe to touch!
Insert Pi B+ into enclosure
Place the Raspberry Pi B+ on top of the inside of the piplus-bottom.stl
part. Insert the Pi B+ at an angle so the audio/video jack is inserted first.
Pi B+ inside enclosure
Position the Raspberry Pi B+ over the pi-plus-bottom.stl
part with the ports lined up with the openings in the part.
Secure Pi B+ to Enclosure
Add four #4-40 flat phillips screws to the mounting holes of the piplus-bottom.stl
part. Fasten them until the screw reaches the PCB.
Secured Pi B+
Yey, the Raspberry Pi B+ is now secured to the piplus-bottom.stl
part with four machine screws.
Close up Pi Enclosure
Position the piplus-top.stl
part over the Raspberry Pi B+ with the ports lined up with the port opening. Snap it shut and fasten the 4 phillips screws until the enclosure is tight and secured.

Pi B+ Enclosure
The enclosure is 2mm thick and should protect the contents of the Raspberry Pi B+. Although the DOMO-KUN theme is nice, we encourage you to customize the design to fit your project.
