Raspberry Pi, Autodesk 123D and i.materialise challenge you to make an extra-ordinary Raspberry Pi case!

Do you remember the Bioscope? It’s one of the many examples where people 3D printed a case for their Raspberry Pi . Now the Raspberry Pi foundation, Autodesk 123D and i.materialise challenge you to do the same.

For this challenge we’d like you to make an original, fun case design for a Raspberry Pi  in polyamide.

We will select 1 winning design. The winner will get the print of their design, an Autodesk Premium Membership, a Raspberry Pi and a goodiebag.

Note that the jury selects upon the 3D renders you put online, so make sure to make a very clear, visible render.

This challenge is open to all designers, professional and amateur, regardless of sex, age or nationality.

Submissions will be accepted up to 23:59 Central European Time, September 1st, 2013.
