     The Raspberry Pi Case by Barch Designs is as awesome as it is functional. We manufacture the case from Solid Billet Aluminum which protects your Raspberry Pi from damage. The case is also a heatsink which keeps your Raspberry Pi running cool and giving you many years of trouble free operation. The case wraps around the Raspberry Pi's external ports giving it a unique and sleek look. The case is designed to be able to give access to all the external ports, as well as be able to easily see what LED's are on.

Description of Features


Raspberry Pi Case LED Engraving Raspberry Pi Case Fiber Optic LED 1 Raspberry Pi Case Fiber Optic LED 2 Raspberry Pi Case Fiber Optic LED 3

There are Fiber Optic cables that have been manufactured into the case. Each Fiber Optic cable is positioned directly above an LED. Labels are engraved next to each LED which allows you to see what activity is happening clearly..




Raspberry Pi Case Inside Top Raspberry Pi In Case Raspberry Pi Case Inside Bottom

The Raspberry Pi Case starts as two pieces of 6061 Aerospace Grade Aluminum which is milled on a CNC machine to exact tolerances. This allows just enough room for the Raspberry Pi to slide down into the case. Any bigger and the Pi would be loose and any smaller it would bind up.




Raspberry Pi Case Heat Sink Pillars Raspberry Pi Case Heat Sink Pillars with Thermal Paste Raspberry Pi Thermal Image

The Raspberry Pi Case comes with thermal paste (heat sink goop) to apply to the 3 pillars of aluminum which come into contact with the 3 heat emitting IC chips. This pulls the heat to the outside of the case working as a heat sink where the abundance of surface area allows the heat to escape easily keeping your Pi running nice and cool.




Raspberry Pi Case GPIO Access Raspberry Pi Case GPIO Slot Raspberry Pi Case GPIO Slot Top

The GPIO Port of the Raspberry Pi is easily accessed by plugging in the cable before the top of the case is screwed down. The slot that is milled into the top of the case allows the ribbon cable access to the outside.




Raspberry Pi Case SD Card Slot Raspberry Pi Case Power Slot

The SD Card Slot ensures your SD card slides into the right spot. We have enlarged the Power slot to allow all size cables to fit. Each manufacturer of cable seems to have their own size casing around the connector.




Raspberry Pi Case Bottom Install Holes

These are Mountable to a wall or desk by using #8 wood screws through the bottom 3 holes in the Raspberry Pi Case.




The Raspberry Pi Case comes with a 5 year warranty. If it breaks we will replace it Period! Feel free to email or call us with any questions.

Assembly of the Raspberry Pi Case

Inside the case is a sheet of plastic under the Neoprene which keeps the Raspberry Pi electrically insulated from the metal case. When the top and bottom half of the case are put together, the Neoprene Foam Rubber squishes to conform to the shape of the bottom of the circuit board which holds the Raspberry Pi snuggly in place while avoiding unnecessary pressure on the circuit board. You can see how the thermal paste for the pillars comes into contact with the IC chips on the board. You want just enough paste to cover the top of the chip fully without spilling over.
