Create a customized, 3D-printed case for the Raspberry Pi


Making the DIY case requires more effort than buying one off the shelf. In particular, it can be difficult to find the appropriate components and cables. Even so, it is lots of fun to experiment and create your own product. Users who enjoy playing with Lego blocks will appreciate the additional freedom offered by CAD.

Once the user has a little experience, the work is easy to complete.
