For my project I decided to make a Raspberry Pi Case for my Raspberry Pi. I got a couple ideas off of thingiverse.com and worked out my own version of a case Id like to use for my own Raspberry Pi.
In creating my case I ended up using blender, which had its own pros and cons. The hardest part was getting the exact measurements for the holes and cuts. I ended up having to convert all my measurements to units and setting up values on all my edges so I could delete the faces of the object at the right spots. I found with blender this was a difficult task since blender doesnt really have a lot of tools that help with distances, so a lot of it was done by setting up my cursor at certain locations and doing math on my cursors x, y, z location to where my next cut will be
I used this schematic of a raspberry pi case to initially set up my cubes dimensions, so I had roughly a 56W x 85L x 27.9H case with 3mm on each side for thickness. All dimensions were divided by 10 to convert mm to a unit which in my case would be considered centimeters instead. To get my height I had 3mm on both ends for thickness, 5mm for the SD card holder, 1.6mm for the electronic board, and 15.3mm for the USB adapter
I started off with one single cube, and cut away for each part of the dimensions that I calculated, and then extruded each area by 0.3 units to give its thickness. At this point I then had to fill in the faces for the missing areas. I did this in two parts so I added a small wedge gap on the top part of the case so when I close the lid it will wedge in and seal the container. I also added an R on the top case so it had some venting. After all was done, I created my masterpiece!
