  • Raspberry Pi Rack Mount

    Figured I’d share. I’m running HomeSeer and Homebridge on a Raspberry Pi 4 powered via POE. Wanted a rack mount so I designed it and printed it in MJF Nylon. Turned out awesome!!

    dibble9012 are you able to make another one of these. Would pay for it. Also, wondering if that would be the same spec for the RPi3 zee-s2 that HomeSeer has (which I have as my controller).

    please advise


    great work by the way!!

      That printed very nicely. What kind of printer do you have?

        According to this, the network and USB ports are in different positions, although the mounting holes and SD card are the same: https://magpi.raspberrypi.org/articl...rry-pi-3b-plus

        I could easily design it for the Raspberry Pi 3.

        Unfortunately it is kind of expensive, due to the quality and size of the print. I didn't mind paying the price for the print as I really wanted a rack mount, and there aren't any commercially available. Total would be $115 shipped. I'll look for a cheaper solution, but that will trade some print quality for price. I love the MJF Nylon as it is quite strong, smooth (no print lines), and the tolerances are great. The size of it allows the PoE hat to fit perfectly, with room to spare for additional options and airflow.

        Thanks for the complement, I love 3D design and printing and I was really happy how this turned out.

          It was printed using an online service, on an HP 4200 series $200,000 printer.

            That explains why it look so nice.

                See above post, I can sell them. I'm trying to find a lower cost printer, but I really don't want to sacrifice quality (MJF nylon just looks amazing).

                  I have posted the STL files online for those that want to print this out themselves. One link is free, the other if you'd like to support my design, both are the exact same STLs. And of course let me know if you'd like me to custom design something. I'll work on posting a Raspberry Pi 3 version as well.

                    Not trying to disrupt but a word of caution, always cast your net wide before you commit your hard earned buck. I once bought a BitScope which turned out to be a pain due to lack of access to the I/O from the from the front. But that said your project has been added to the "sea" here : https://www.google.com/search?q=rasp...DndnWswYuzgfDM
                    What do you think of this one : https://lincolnbinns.com/rp-19-rack-solutions.html ?

                      That’s a cool solution. Wish they had one for the RPI4.

                        Because the raspberry PI 4 is new but I think they can do that as well on request : https://lincolnbinns.com/customisation/custom-internet-of-things-iot.html
