Build your own stackable Raspberry Pi Tower (part 3)

Material

Before building the tower we had to organise and buy some material. Here is a shopping list which can be used as an example to build the tower. As mentioned before, we could use some really great tools like the laser cutter and professional drilling tolls from the FabLab Bern. If you don’t have access to such tools a short search on Google will probably help (like how to cut Acryl Glass).

Shopping list

All the stuff can be found on Amazon, Ali Express, Element14 or local stores

  • 3mm x 1500mm x 500mm and 5mm x 1500mm x 500mm Acryl Glass
