Assembling the RasPi case
This page is intended to help those who have ordered a RasPi case or wish to read about how it fits together.
As of 7th August 2012, I have stocks of cases in for immediate despatch:
Costs: UK including delivery £12.50. Non-UK including delivery £15.40.
Shipping discounts apply for multiple orders and are calculated in the cart.
What you will receive
The RasPi case kit will be sent out in a durable reinforced box. Inside it will be a ziplock bag containing the acrylic pieces. You will need to peel off the protective paper from both sides before assembly.
The kit also includes 4 bolts and nuts to hold the case together, plus one spare nut and bolt – I know how frustrating it can be to lose one and not have another to hand. These bolts and nuts are only a 2mm thread, so quite small.
Tools you will need
A small philips screwdriver is needed for the four bolts. You may also need a small tube of superglue or other clear adhesive to secure the cradle parts together, although with care they can be assembled without adhesive. Please take care when peeling the paper off these parts as the cradle parts are very delicate. If they break then use superglue to glue them back together again.
Assembling the case
The curved slots underneath are if you wish to use an elastic band to secure the case to your monitor column or other surface.
The two very small holes are for use with M3 bolts instead of an elastic band.
There you have it, your own chic designer Raspberry Pi acrylic case. Enjoy.
