This fabulous model? This is a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B. You know, the device you can use to brain a hexapod, integrate a complete home automation system or link to form an impressive Raspberry Pi SuperComputer.

Yes, this wee device has more compute capacity and capability than a couple of inept presidential candidates and a candidly similar lack of moral conscience, being that it is, in fact, a machine. Alexandre Willame modeled this sweet little thing with all “the bottom parts, photorealistic textures, and components updated to match the Official Raspberry Pi documentation.”

Modeled in SolidWorks 2016, Alexandre has included the SolidWorks .sldprt file, along with STL, IGS, STEP files and the Raspberry Pi 3 spec sheet. I held my Raspberry Pi 3 up to this model and, folks, it matches beautifully. What can you use this model for? Well, you could use it to fashion a RasPi case, construct a rack for 100 Raspberry Pi’s or render out a sweet desktop wallpaper to show everyone how stoked you are about the palm size computer!

You can download the files on GrabCAD! (Bonus! Grab the Complete Raspberry Pi Starter Kit here!)
