New Project! How to CNC Case for @Raspberry_Pi

May 04, 2017 Noe Ruiz

In this project, I wanted to make a case for the Raspberry Pi 3. I milled the two halves of the case out of hard wood (oak and maple). I came up with this “face plate” concept to avoid overhangs since 3-Axis CNC mills can’t do them. Instead of cutting large openings, I made holes to expose the various connectors. The cutout in the top halve of the case is for an acrylic piece so you can see into the case – sorta like a window. The Raspberry Pi itself is secured to the bottom half of the case with 4 machine screws. I added an inner lip to the top half of the case so the two halves can fit together without having to use any screws.
