Cases in other colors?

Thu May 03, 2018 1:35 pm

I like the form factor of the official cases for the 3B / 3B+. It would be great if there were ones that were light blue and white. Is there a place that can manufacture or 3D print one or two for a reasonable price?

Pimoroni makes layered laser cut cases in all colors of the rainbow.

Not in the same form factor of the official red/white case though.

Adafruit also has injection molded cases in a variety of colors. You can even order the tops and bottoms separately to make a multi-color case.

Thanks. I see the Adafruit ones are quite close but a little translucent. There is blue and clear but not plain white too.

I guess to be more specific, I wonder if there are any opaque, matte, injection molded cases for the 3B / 3B+ available anywhere?

Plain, all-white cases?

Perhaps as an easier option, making a run of plain, all-white cases might not require much change at the factory. The molds are already in place and the plastics available. Where should I be asking about that?

I'm looking for something really unobtrusive to reduce the visibility of the box so that it blends more into the background when it has to be visible.

If you search amazon or ebay for "raspberry pi case white" you'll get a few cases I'd call unobtrusive (you'll also see cases that aren't in fact white at all, of course).
