Acrylic enclosure for FriendlyElec NanoPi NEO2

The NanoPi NEO2 board by FriendlyElec has several options for an enclosure in their webshop. The 3D-printed plastic enclosure is of too poor quality, and it doesn’t fixate the heatsink properly on the CPU.

The acrylic case does not include washers, which makes the whole construct too fragile, as the screws can easily damage the plastic.  Also the M2.5 screws for fixing the heatsink are too short.

So, I added the following components to the design:

  • M3*16mm  screws and M3 nuts (4 pieces each)
  • M3 washers (24 pieces)

Also the following parts came with the acrylic case:

  • M3*6mm screws (4 pieces)
  • 6.3mm plastic spacers (4 pieces)
  • 25mm female-female M3 spacers (4 pieces)
  • 6mm male-female M3 spacers (4 pieces)

As a result, we get a sturdy case that is able to sustain some rough handling, like carrying it in a toolbox among other hardware.
