This guide will show you how to assemble the Raspberry Pi Zero Camera Case. All you'll need is a simple cross-head screwdriver (If you have the Raspberry Pi 4/3 version of this case you'll want this guide instead).
Step 1 – Snap the acrylic parts out of their holders and peel the protective film off of both sides of all layers then clean off any dust.
Step 2 – We'll get the fiddly part out of the way - secure the clear lens protector into place with the M2 bolts and four nuts. These nuts will double up as a spacer for your camera board to sit on.
Step 3 – place your Raspberry Pi Camera on top of the 4 nuts and lock into place with another 4 nuts. Don't worry if you have left-overs, we included extras in your pack of parts.
Step 4 – Use 4 M2.5 screws to secure the smaller M/F standoffs to the base layer of the case. (Important! If you're mounting this case to a wall using one of our wall mounting brackets you'll want to quickly check out this guide)
Step 5 – Add your Raspberry Pi Zero and follow up with the tall F/F standoffs.
Step 6 – Now is a good time to connect your Raspberry Pi camera ribbon cable, make sure you have it connected the right way around (matching our image below)
Step 7 – Pit stop! Above is a handy photo to show you how the side panels will slot together. Each panel with have a slightly bumpy set of feet (from where we snapped them out of the panels), fear not - these go into the base so won't be seen.
Step 8 – Slot your side panels into place one by one and place the lid on top. You will have 4 remaining M2.5 screws to lock this into place. Job done!
