<< Me and the RaspberryPi /5
I will made the case available on Shapeways in different colours and materials.
Here are some renderings (made using Blender and Yafaray) showing the appearance of the different versions.
And you? 😉
Cool, Marco, I hope to design some cases as well! Where did you get the dimensions?

I tried to mediate the dimensions of the components I found all around the manufacturers’ sites and the informations I found here:
Fantastic case design – easily the most visually appealing that I seen so far.
I’m torn between the polished white which looks great for when it’s a finished accessory sitting next to a TV, and the transparent which is great for education so that you don’t lose sight of what it is that you are actually playing with.
Awesome case. Thank you for your work.
I don’t know the difference between the two whites, but I really like the white and black pi cases! Injection molding would be provide such an awesome case at a reasonable price…especially considering shipping costs. Great job!
The polished is… polished! 😉
It’s the same material as “White strong and flexible”, that is matte, but it’s polished to make it glossy.
Both frosted look great. Red strong also looks corresponding to the name. Do you know what would be estimated price for your case?
The cheaper one (White Strong and flexible) plus a lightguide should be about $48-50 (excluded taxes).
Not very grasping price point. Is there any way it might be cheaper? For example, is it possible to print it on a 3D printer?
I know that it’s not cheap. It IS the price for 3D printing on Shapeways. Nevertheless it’s a very high quality professional printing, nothing to do with some home-made printing I see all around.
I’m looking for cheaper (much cheaper!) alternatives (such as injection moulding, that would be THE choice), but nothing has been defined yet.
When I first read your post I thought that it was available now, but it looks as if we will have to be patient for a bit longer yet!
I hope you manage to obtain a ‘production model’ Raspberry Pi computer soon, so that you can finalise your design.
Well, if none has got a board yet, then none needs a case yet. 😉
