Raspberry Pi Acorn RISC OS Case
I have finally got my hands on a Raspberry Pi 3 earlier this week and straight away went in search of a cool case for it over at Thingiverse.
As I'm going to be running RISC OS I thought it would be nice to have a case based on old Acorn hardware. I couldn't find anything on Thingiverse I liked so decided to design something myself based on the design of my Acorn Risc PC.
As you can see I wanted to have 2 USB connectors on the front for memory cards etc. and 2 on the back for the keyboard and mouse. There are 4 holes for screws to secure the PCB and also the possibility to have 2 LED's on the front like the original Risc PC.
When printing it out I decided to print using a Wood/PLA composite which I quite like:
For comparison with a real Risc PC look no further:
Now all thats left to do is to connect it to a monitor, keyboard and mouse and power it up!
Cables and Other Parts
The 5 extension cables can be found on places like Ebay. The sizes in the 3D models have been matched perfectly to these cable ends so if you buy any other cables you will most likely need to change the STL files. Links are below the images:

- 2x USB extensions for the rear-USB sockets http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/351069587908
- 1x Ethernet extension cable http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/391035454289
