So Google recently released their first AIY project on the cover of the MagPi magazine. The kit itself allows you to add voice interaction to your Raspberry Pi and in typical Google fashion it came with a cardboard case to keep all the bits in. Well that was the plan, but unfortunately my kit didn’t come with the case. Nevermind, I have access to a 3D printer!
For this project I decided to finally get around to using Fusion 360 instead of 123D Design (also by Autodesk) and I have to say it was definitely worth the switch. Being able to jump to any point in the history of the project, make a change, and then jump back to the current point in time was super powerful. Armed with my trusty calipers, I set about designing a case that emulated the one that came with the kit.
It probably took about 4 hours or so to design and another 8 hours to print the whole thing, but it was worth the wait:
I had to reprint the lid as I incorrectly measured the diameter of the button, but that’s much better than I usually do!
I’ve had a fair few requests for the STL files and as ever they’re over on Thingiverse. Get them here. Don’t forget to give me a shout if you print it, I’d love to see how it comes out.
