In this project we're building a portable Raspberry Pi using the model A+, PiTFT 3.5” display, Powerboost 500C and a 2500mAh lithium polymer battery.
We designed this very simple case in CAD - It's a two part enclosure that's fasten together with screws. All the components are panel mounted and fit nicely in a small little enclosure.
This is a great starting point to build on top of, because you can modify the parts to fit your project and reuse any components - It's a very modular design and it's open source so you can make it yours.
If you're new to the Raspberry Pi, we recommend walking through the following guides.
We have all the components to build this project in the side bar and list below.
We'll need a few hand tools, and few supplies and access to a 3D printer.
- 3D printer + filament
- Soldering iron + solder
- Panavise Jr.
- Helping third hand
- Wire strippers
- Flush diagonal cutters
- 26AWG silicone cover stranded-core wire
- Female/Female jumper wires 40 x 6"
- Heat Shrink
- Gaffers tape
- #4-40 3/8 flat Phillips machine screws
