CAD Files

STL files for 3D printing are oriented to print "as-is" on FDM style machines. Parts are designed to 3D print without any support material. Original design source may be downloaded using the links below.

Window Options

The top cover is designed to have a window. This allows you to peek through and see the Raspberry Pi Pico. The window can be 3D printed using transparent filament.

Have fun with this! Add your own text, logo or stickers / vinyl decals. Personalize it, make it yours.

Optionally, the window can be made from acrylic using a laser cutter or CNC mill.

Install Window

The window features a lip to prevent it from being pressed all the way through the cut out in the top cover.

The window is installed through the bottom side of the top cover. It should have a tight fit.

Optionally glue in place to permanently secure to the top cover.

Install Handle to Frame

Use the following hardware to secure the handle to the frame.

  • 4x M3 x 10mm screws
  • 4x M3 locknuts

Handle Kickstand

The handle features an angled surface for propping up the case. Reference the image for the correct placement of the handle. Use the USB opening on the side of the frame as an indicator for the correct orientation.

Secure Handle to Frame

Insert the M3 screws through the mounting holes in the hinges. Then, insert the screws through the holes on the side of the frame. Install and fasten the locknuts onto the screws. Use pliers to tightly secure the screw and nuts.

Install Bottom Cover to Frame

The bottom cover snap fits onto the frame. The bottom cover features snap fit clips that are designed to lock onto the edges inside the frame.

Reference the image for the correct orientation.

Fusion 360 CAD Tutorial

Taking a look at designing a hinged handle that can be 3d printed in place with no supports. The design features a handle that can rotate 180 degrees. This handle is apart of the enclosure for a MIDI controller. Driven with user parameters, the handle can be customized to fit any project.
