Raspberry Pi enthusiasts searching for a unique case to protect their mini PC, may be interested in a new Raspberry Pi case created by FoxTail, who has created a Sega Dreamcast Pi case. The 3D printing files have been kindly made available by FoxTail via the Thingiverse website, allowing anyone with access to a 3D printer to replicate the case to protect their own Raspberry Pi mini PC.
The iconic Sega Dreamcast case supports the Raspberry Pi B+ / 2 / 3 systems, and is also equipped with an additional cooling fan aperture that allows you to fit a 30mm x 30mm x 10mm cooling fan, powered by the GPIO pins from the Raspberry Pi. “You must use a Raft + Supports to print the Top part (cannot be printed without supports) / You must use a Raft to print the Bottom Part. If you don’t use rafts (or a heatbed), the deformations (warping) will be visible when you assemble the case. All the little parts are decorative and must be glued on the case.”
It is hard to believe but the first Raspberry Pi mini PC was officially launched just over six years ago and since then has changed the landscape of affordable computing.
