Don’t miss: 28 RetroPie Gaming Raspberry Pi Cases to 3D Print

Raspberry_Pi_2_Model_BLaunched in 2012, the Raspberry Pi is a computer the size of a credit-card, powered by an ARM processor and enough connectivity for a range of applications. And because it’s incredibly cheap, learning about computer science has never been more accessible or affordable.

Part of the “back to basics” charm is that it doesn’t come packaged in a fancy case. It’s just a circuit board with soldered components and ports, naked as the day as it was born.

Because of this, one of the first projects people begin with their new computer is not to plug it in and switch it on, but to build a Raspberry Pi case.

Attention if you are looking for a Raspberry Pi 3 Case?

Are all Pis are created equal? Unfortunately, they aren’t. Currently, there are three Raspberry Pi case categories.

  1. The measurements of the Pi B, B+, Pi 2 and Pi 3 are the same. One small drawback is that if you own a Pi 3, you won‘t be able to see the status LEDs in a Raspberry Pi B case. If you can live with that, you don’t need a special case and can print any Raspberry Pi case of this list.
  2.  There are a few cases for historic, much slower models A and A+. We don’t cover these.
  3. There are 3D printable Raspberry Pi Zero cases, which you can find in this article.

Now it’s time to outfit that fruity little computer in style.

If you don’t have a 3D printer at hand, you can have the 3D models printed by a professional 3D printing service. To get the best price, please use All3DP’s Best Price 3D Printing Service.
