I didn’t realise until I received it, that it’s designed to bolt a full size Raspberry Pi directly to the chassis and while you can mount a Pi Zero, you’d need extra bolts to mount one in it’s case. Not wanting to ditch a case (or buy any extra bolts), I set about designing something to fix the problem.

    I own a lot of HATs for my Raspberry Pi. Between the Unicorn HAT, Scroll pHAT and Blinkt! you might say I’m addicted to LEDs but I’ve recently managed to find a new addiction in 3D printing. Whilst the Unicorn HAT is a lovely, colourful, 8×8 matrix, the individual NeoPixels are naturally round and quite bright. Needing to get to grips […]
