Raspberry Pi CASE 1.0RC1


I thought about it and I decided that the case for the Raspberry Pi computer is ready to be released at least as a Release Candidate.

Here you can order the case itself:

Here you can order the LED lightguides:

I’ve just ordered mine. I will test it again on my board: as I said, the alpha model was not perfect but perfectly usable; now it should be really ok. In the meanwhile you  impatient and brave hacked can decide whether to wait or get one!

;)

And finally… an ASCII Art image of the boxed Raspberry Pi computer! :)

    Looks really great, but the prices are just insane. Why should the case cost twice the main board ?

    IMO no RPI cases should ever cost more than 15 squids, and under no circustance more than the RPI itself. It feels like an iPhone cover that cost 900$

      The case costs about 50$, RPi 35$, so it’s not twice. The cost is due to the production process (SLS), unfortunately it’s expensive.
      Moreover, it is not a “cover” to be applied over a case, but it is a case. You don’t know how much the case for the iPhone is… :)

    Bellissimo! Solamente costa più del Raspberry Pi… Mi accontenterò della tavoletta nuda e cruda!
    Se il prezzo detriplicherà ci penserò su!

    Marco,
    Ti faccio i complimenti per questo case. Ne ho appena ordinato uno su Shapeways. Mi chiedevo, posizionare uno strato di materiale parzialmente trasparente direttamente tra i led sulla scheda e le lightguides potrebbe diminuire la luminosità e eliminare il fastidioso effetto trasparenza nel case… Proverò… Nel frattempo in attesa del case ho appena installato raspbmc e va una meraviglia…

      Grazie!
      La versione RC1 corregge il posizionamento delle guide luce, e i primi test sul modello che ho appena ricevuto stamattina (che però è rosso, non bianco) mostrano un netto miglioramento del sistema. Adesso l’attività dei led è ben visibile sui cinque punti luce. Il più fastidioso è il led dell’alimentazione (PWR), perché è molto più luminoso degli altri e tendere a diffondere.

    will ever an abs injection and cheaper model be available? Any schedule?

    Good afternoon Marco.
    I like your design! as a product designer myself I have been looking into designing one myself as well.
    However. Shapeways is one option to get it printed. I have access to 8 3D printers myself. Is it possible for me to print the model myself? could I get it as a STL file?
    Great job!

    I think the price will turn many potential customers away (its more expensive than the Pi itself, not including shipping). But it is one of the best Pi case designs I have seen so far if it were in the 10 euro range I wouldn’t hesitate ordering one.

    Excellent work Marco! Very impressive case design!
    Have you planned to make the case also in ABS plastic (more resistant)? I think it will be the best solution!

    Although I am impatient, I am not very brave, so I have decided to wait for the final ‘release’ version.

    It certainly is a lovely and beautifully designed case though, but it is a shame that it is quite so expensive to buy from Shapeways.

    I am sure that in the end it will be worth the wait though!

    An excellent job, Marco.

    I think you have done an excellent job with this case!

    However, the price stopped me in my tracks from purchasing it right away…I think I will first wait for your review on it and then maybe wait to see if the prices and shipping to Canada come down possibly.

    Congratulations!
