New Tutorial! Layer by Layer – Adafruit Joy Bonnet for Raspberry Pi

from New Tutorial! Layer by Layer – Adafruit Joy Bonnet for Raspberry Pi
by Noe Ruiz

I’m working on a new retropie project that uses the Raspberry Pi Zero W and the new Adafruit Joy Bonnet. Before I can design an enclosure for this project, I need to 3D model the PCB + components! Using EagleCAD and Fusion 360, I exported a DFX, which is a drawing of the footprints of each component, and import that into Fusion 360. This makes modeling a whole lot easier! I normally would use the dimension tool and recreate all of the components, but this method remove all the steps of figuring out the position of each component. I still need to use a set of calipers to measure things like the depth of the buttons, height of the headers, that sort of thing.

If anyone is interested in using this component for their project, I made the F360 source available to download – You can also download it as a STEP or STL (or many other formats) to reuse in your CAD package of choice. Thanks for watching!
