Business Card Holder Case

Fri Aug 17, 2012 1:56 pm

A Raspberry Pi fits nicely into a Business Card holder box. ;) (You will need a 90deg micro usb connector)

This was from a 125 No. container which is 95x60x33mm (internal dims)

Simple but effective. Total cost - 26p 8-)

I am designing mine to incorperate a plug and a little usb hub, so will only have the HDMI cable exiting the case.

hi

i had exactly the same idea and built mine over the weekend, i was coming here to post my idea only to find you got there first!

ahh well, its a great case for what i need (cheep) and keeps things from falling onto the PCB (my main worry as its going to be around the back of my TV)

its a very simply built - just dremmel out some holes for the ports you want (remembering you will want to put the board down and then slide forward (for the USB to stick out the case - so the audio aperture needs to be elongated to allow for this travel) and then cut the lid so when its fitted it doesn’t clash

i couldn’t upload any high res images to the forum (restrictions on size) so thery are here if anyone’s interested
