Raspberry Pi 4 Case (with cooling fan) Assembly Guide

How to assemble our Raspberry Pi 4 Case (with cooling fan)!

Bill of Materials

1. The laser-cut parts of the case are protected by an adhesive film which needs to be removed before assembly (this is *very* therapeutic), simply peel it off

2. We've made assembly a doddle by cutting small dots into the tabs/corresponding slots - simply match these up and remember that the dots will be inside the case. 

 

3. Using the black screws, attach the 4mm stand-offs to the bottom plate of the case

4. Place your Raspberry Pi 4 Model B on top of these stand-offs with the SD card above the SD cutout and attach the longer 11mm standoffs on top. Be careful not to over-tighten as this could damage the acrylic.

5. Slot the two end pieces into the bottom layer of the case, followed by the two remaining side pieces. Remember to match up the dots and ensure that they're left on the inside of the case.

7. Screw the 5V fan into the inside of case

8. Connect the fan's header to the correct GPIO pins of your Raspberry Pi (see below)

9. Close the case and screw it shut with the remaining black screws. 

Viola! Case complete!

NOTE: Acrylic is a hard and stiff plastic which is sensitive to stress concentrations and shares a certain level of fragility with glass. Acrylic can scratch easily and should be cleaned with a mild solution of dish detergent and warm water. Never use cleaners unsuitable for acrylic. Never use a dry, abrasive cloth.
