The Raspberry Pi Casing protects the Raspberry Pi from accidental damage while still allowing various GPIO breakout cards to be used.
It is also big enough to accommodate external breadboards and prototyping boards.
The Pi Casing is ideal for hobbyists and school projects.
This presentation is a step by step instruction on assembling the Pi Casing.

Raspberry Pi casing - a flexible project case for the Raspberry Pi

  1. 1. PI CASING The flexible project case for the Raspberry Pi Ideal for school projects and hobbyists 10th September 2014 SF Innovations
  2. 2. www.sf-innovations.co.uk OVERVIEW There are many different types of cases available for the Raspberry Pi so what is different about Pi Casing? Many of the Raspberry Pi cases are designed just to take the Raspberry Pi. They are aimed at software only projects and will not accommodate GPIO add-on boards such as the Pi Face from Farnell, the Slice of Pi from Ciseco, the Prototyping Pi Plate from Adafruit or the Custard Pi range from SF Innovations. Some will not even allow a 26 way ribbon cable to be connected. The Pi Casing will enclose the Raspberry Pi with any one of the above boards plugged in. It will also allow prototyping boards to sit alongside the Pi for custom hardware.

  4. 4. www.sf-innovations.co.uk COMPONENTS SUPPLIED This enclosure size is 18 cm x 12 cm x 4 cm
  5. 5. www.sf-innovations.co.uk COMPONENTS SUPPLIED Part Quantity Base 1 Top 1 Nylon Hex 6mm spacers 8 Bolts M3 6mm Pozi Pan head 14 M3 Nylon nuts 8 M3 x 40mm Spacers 3 20 x 20 x 8mm Rubber feet 4
  6. 6. www.sf-innovations.co.uk STEP 1 – PEEL OFF THE PROTECTIVE LAYER Both sides of the plastic sheet is protected.
  7. 7. www.sf-innovations.co.uk RASPBERRY PI: MODEL B & MODEL B+ The mounting method for the two models are different. Steps 2A & 2B outline the method for Raspberry Pi model A & B: These have only two holes for mounting. Steps 2B & 3B outline the method for Raspberry Pi model B+ which has 4 mounting holes.
  8. 8. www.sf-innovations.co.uk STEP 2A – ATTACH THE 4 PILLARS FOR THE PI (MODEL A & B) The four threaded pillars are held in place by the 4 bolts. Two of the pillars go through holes in the Raspberry Pi and The other 2 are for support. Clip the threaded pillar off the 2 supports.
  9. 9. www.sf-innovations.co.uk STEP 3A – FIX THE RASPBERRY PI MODELS A & B Insert the Raspberry Pi onto the two fixing pillars and use the nylon nuts to fix it in place, using a pair of pliers if necessary.
  10. 10. www.sf-innovations.co.uk STEP 2B – ATTACH THE 4 PILLARS FOR THE PI (MODEL B+) Attach the four threaded pillars to the Raspberry Pi
  11. 11. www.sf-innovations.co.uk STEP 3B – FIX THE RASPBERRY PI MODEL B+ Fix the Raspberry Pi Model B+ onto the base using the 4 bolts supplied. Use the nylon nuts to fix it in place, using a pair of pliers if necessary.
  12. 12. www.sf-innovations.co.uk STEP 4 – FIX THE 3 SUPPORT PILLARS
  13. 13. www.sf-innovations.co.uk STEP 5 – ATTACH THE RUBBER FEET
  14. 14. www.sf-innovations.co.uk STEP 6A – BUILD THE PROJECT This example shows a Custard Pi 1 with an external prototyping breadboard.
  15. 15. www.sf-innovations.co.uk STEP 6B – BUILD THE PROJECT This example shows a Custard Pi 8 SMT and through hole prototyping board.
  16. 16. www.sf-innovations.co.uk STEP 7 – ATTACH THE LID
  17. 17. www.sf-innovations.co.uk The Pi Casing is a flexible casing for the Raspberry Pi GPIO projects. Further information: www.sf-innovations.co.uk Blog dedicated to electronics & Raspberry Pi
