Arducam designed this acrylic case to be used with several camera modules for Raspberry Pi from Arducam and the Raspberry Pi Foundation.
The following instructions show you how to assemble the acrylic pieces featuring the Arducam B0033 for Raspberry Pi Camera. The time required to build this is about 10 minutes.
Feel free to drop us a line if you need our help.
- Sit in front of a desk,
- Remove the film protector from the acrylic,
- Get a screwdriver
and you are good to go.

Raspberry Pi Camera Acrylic Case Video Installation Guide
STEP 1 OF 8
Pick up the first piece as the picture shows (the larger one with the most cut-through) and align its circular holes with the mounting holes on the camera board.
The orientation of the acrylic matters and the gap should lie between the two holes to the left while the ribbon cable is on the bottom side.
STEP 2 OF 8
After the 4 holes of the acrylic and the camera board are aligned, put the screws through while holding the camera board and the acrylic together until all four screws are in the right place.
STEP 3 OF 8
Flip the camera board over and put it on the desk (so you don’t have to hold the 4 screws in place), then get the smallest piece of acrylic and let the screws go through all four holes.
The notch is to the right side as the picture shows.
STEP 4 OF 8
Take the 2 “L” shaped pieces out, and mount them on the base as the picture shows.
The base has three holes for you to mount the whole case somewhere else.
STEP 5 OF 8
Hold the base like the picture shows, and then insert the two “limbs” to the left and right sides of the camera board.
You can find out what it looks like after inserted in step 6.
STEP 6 OF 8
Hold the base in place (inside the slot beside the camera board), and mount the last piece of the acrylic on the 4 screws.
STEP 7 OF 8
Put and fasten all 4 nuts on the screws
STEP 8 OF 8
Use the screwdriver to tighten the screws in the front while holding the nut still.
Now we’ve finished installing the case, you can put it anywhere you want.
