A universal base for the Raspberry Pi

If you want to mount the Raspberry Pi with a HiFiBerry sound card inside a speaker, onto a wall or on any other flat surface, you’ll notice that it isn’t so easy. The 4 mounting holes are already used to fix the standoffs for the HiFiBerry sound card. They are also too small for most of the screws you have lying around the house. To overcome these issues, we’ve created a small base that you can mount your Raspberry Pi on. We’ve tested this with the Raspberry Pi B+, 3B, 3B+ and 4B. It should work with all these (and probably also with the A versions). It works perfectly with the standoffs that come with our HiFiBerry boards.

The 3D files are available on Thingiverse. The mounting holes are too big for you or you want to modify it in any other way? No problem, you can also download the CAD files. This is in FreeCAD format. Feel free to remix it in any way you like. The design should print on most printers without the need for supports.

Here is an example how this will look like with the Raspberry Pi and a HiFiBerry sound card installed.

It took some iterations to get to the final design…

BTW: If you designed something similar, or something completely different that has something to do with HiFiBerry, you should join our 3D design contest!
