Raspberry Pi + AC PSU Case/Enclosure

Prints (0)


Summary This enclosure accommodates a common AC to 5v (5A & 8A) PSU from ebay/aliexpress, and a Raspberry Pi 2 and Raspberry Pi Model B+ (probably Pi3 too, but not tested yet). http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/191733870857 - 5v 5a/8a - 110mm78mm35mm The Pi is my HTPC running OSMC and my intention was to provide enough amps to run ambilight/hyperion/boblight LEDs and keep cable mess to a minimum by integrating the power and pi into one box. The area above the Pi provides space for a prototype circuit - Arduino Nano, Pro Mini, or a logic lever shifter like I've done. Still to do: Design mounting system (VESA possibly). UPDATE: V4: Airflow slots at the PSU end and in the proto area. Dowel ridge around the sides of the case for better alignment of the 2 halves when screwed together and for strength (very loose tolerance at the moment). Re-designed bottom vent holes. Mesh now as tidy as I'll get it. PSU moved 1mm closer to the side to give more room for cables on the other side. UPDATE: V3: Tidied mesh some more. Fixed the ethernet & usb ports area so it fits the Pi nice. Added hole by the USB ports for running wires out of the case. Changed the fan hole, to accept any fan between 30mm and 60mm. Note: if using one of the smaller fans, there will be large holes around it. enlarged the holes around the USB power, HDMI and 3.5mm jack ports. UPDATE: V2: Added 4th screw hole. Pi has been moved 6mm up to make space for 4th screw hole. Enlarged screw holes for larger head screws (9mm head will fit) Mesh is a little more tidy, more dimensional accuracy. Print Settings Printer: Creatornator Rafts: Doesn't Matter Supports: No Resolution: 0.3 Infill: More = stronger Notes: I'm using a 0.8mm nozzle, so you'll need to compensate your setup accordingly. I printed this on a raft with 3 top/bottom layers, 3 loops and 30% infill. Came out very strong. It can be printed with fewer loops and more infill. Everything is designed to have at least 1 loop at 0.8mm nozzle width.
