3D Printed Case
Build a PC tower inspired 3D printed case. Secure the Pi and extra accessories such as a 1.9in TFT display, 5V fan, 2x buttons and a power switch with an LED.
Side panels attach to the frame making this a modular design for easy access. The case features a handle with a print-in-place hinge for transport.
Use the 1.9in color TFT screen to display your media servers IP address, CPU temperature or memory/disk usage using CircuitPython libraries for Raspberry Pi OS.
Also play looping GIF images on the display and cycle through them using the built-in buttons.
Customize the side panels to add more features and accessories.
A 5V fan can be mounted to one side of the panels to keep the Raspberry Pi nice and cool.
A 16mm metal pushbutton with built-in LED is mounted to the back side of the case, right above the microSD card slot.
Secure the 2.5in SSD with standard mounting holes to the 3D printed bracket.
Attach the SSD bracket to the side panel for a secure and reliable external drive.
