Glueless Paper Raspberry Pi Case

I decided to make my own paper case for my Raspberry Pi. I liked the idea of something that I could just cut up and fold into shape. So, I came up with a design that uses the Pi's connectors to hold everything into place and doesn't require glue.

My version was colored by my almost-2-year-old son:

Looks like that's interesting enough to have challenged your hosting limits ;)

Not too sure what I've done wrong, however, my case is about 15mm too small for the PI. No amount of forcing it will get it in, it will just rip. :?

They must have used the wrong settings in the factory and made your Pi too big - either that or its a printer scaling issue :?

Thats way cool :) why don't you make a lid the same way to keep the dust out?

mrcaptain -- make sure you don't have any margins set in your PDF viewer. If you are using linux, try xpdf instead of the default viewer. The default always seems to want to add extra margins.

pygmy_giant -- I like being able to see the components. if you want to keep the dust out, you can always just turn the whole thing upside down.

Great idea, and I love that you got your little son to paint it.
