This guide will show you how to assemble the simple Pi enclosure that’s included in the Maker Shed Raspberry Pi Starter Kit.

Project Steps

You should have nine parts in total: four side pieces, one bottom piece, and four small locks.

Your parts may look slightly different.

Place your Raspberry Pi onto the bottom piece. The headers, SD card slot, and USB power port should be above the side with the two small rectangles.

Now attach the two smaller sides, and hold the whole assembly in your hand as shown.

The side piece with the “Make: Pi” engraving should line up with the SD card slot on your Pi – you may have to push the Pi into place.

Now slide the two larger side pieces into place. It doesn’t matter what order you assemble them in.

You may have to put some pressure on the side pieces to get everything to fit together nicely, but that’s ok, it’s supposed to be a tight fit.

If you’re using the included Pi Cobbler, install it on the headers and slide the ribbon cable through the side piece before assembling.

Now insert the four small lock pieces into their slots.

That’s it, you’re done!
