The finishing touch for this project is 3D printing an epic case to contain everything! There are plenty of great CAD programs out there, but for simplicities sake, I'm using Tinkercad. You'll want to 3D print the enclosure using supports.





The LCD, Raspberry Pi and Camera should basically snap into place, as long as you're using the same parts as me. The LiPo battery will sit in between the camera and the Pi, but you won't be able to plug the battery directly into the USB port of the Pi because there isn't enough room in the case. As an alternative, we can strip the wires coming from the battery and solder them to the PP2 and PP5 ports on the back of the Raspberry Pi Micro USB port.




I used hot glue to hold everything into place within the camera case, but DO NOT USE HOT GLUE DIRECTLY ON THE LIPO BATTERY!!! Once all the pieces are together, you can test it out. If it works, you can hot glue the two halves of the case together!





Finally, you can add a little bit of white paint to make it look more like a Youtube logo, and then start streaming!
