After a long hiatus, I was able to create two more versions of original weatherproof case for taking Raspberry Pi camera outdoor, RainBerry for Raspberry Pi Zero W and Raspberry Pi 3.
They are available on PinShape and 3DExport.
- RainBerryZ for Raspberry Pi Zero W – Get it here Pi Zero.
- RainBerry3 for Raspberry Pi Zero 3 or 2 – Get it here Pi 3
Downloads are available on 3DExport,
If you do not have 3D printer like me, you can order them from 3DHubs, Shapeways, Sculpteo, i.materialise, MakeXZY or your local public library.
Here are some snapshots of RaspberryZ.
Placing screws in the seal holes before assembling in the case.
Than place the seal ring of camera opening followed by place glass cover. Finally put the camera seal and then tighten the screws. Put the seal around the side grove and cut it to fit all sides.
Top case with rubber seal of glass and camera seal holder assembled.
After assembly of camera
Fully ready to roll !
Image from the camera, please ignore the mesh screen in the window.
Here are RainBerry3 Snapshots. Case is slightly big to accommodate the bluetooth and maintain square shape.
Top case with glass, O ring and o ring assembled in the side groves.
After camera is assembled with M1.6 Size, 4MM. I found it is much easier to use them than M2 Size, 5MM ones which fit tighter.
Ready to roll !
Finally all 3 cameras. Hurrah !
It uses same screws and mounts as RainBerry earlier version.
