Keep your Raspberry Pi® computer safe and sound in this lovely laser-cut clear 1/8" acrylic enclosure. We designed this case to be beautiful, easy to assemble and perfect for any use (but especially for those who want to tinker!)
Before you Begin…
The acrylic case clicks together, relying on the slight flexibility of the plastic in place of screws or other hardware. DO NOT FORCE ANYTHING! If flexed too hard, acrylic will break. All the pieces should assemble with minimal finger pressure. If a part is uncooperative, something is misaligned…back off and check your progress, do not press harder!
To accommodate manufacturing variance among boards, there’s a tiny bit of “play” in the case dimensions. The finished case will have a slight rattle to it. This is entirely normal, and the case will hold together fine.
1. Remove the SD memory card and any cables currently plugged into your Raspberry Pi® board.
2. One of the case ends has cutouts for USB and Ethernet. There’s a small part attached inside the Ethernet cutout — snap this out and set it aside for later. The ring of plastic separating this piece can be discarded.
4. Optional: if using a ribbon cable to break out the GPIO pins, install this on the board first. The pin 1 stripe should be positioned nearest the SD card end of the board. The cable should go straight out the side, not double back on itself, and there is no clearance for a strain relief — remove it if present.
9. Position the second side of the case (with the HDMI video port), slotting into the tabs on the top and bottom pieces. If this seems wobbly or lopsided, you might have this piece upside-down or inside-out. Check for the “HDMI” label and orient this correctly over the jack.
To dismantle the case, remove the SD card and unplug all cables. Gently pinch the case to release the two lower “claws.” The end piece should pivot upward and can be unhooked at the top. Repeat with the opposite end piece, and the rest of the case then easily dismantles (don’t drop your Pi board in the process!).
