Retro Computer Console

Build your own Raspberry Pi Zero Powered retro 1970s Cray-1 console with this simple 3d printable project.

The design for project is based on the Cray-1 Supercomputer from the 1970s. I wanted to create something fun to go along with this project, so I found a photo of a console from the Cray-1 brochure of a woman using a console. I designed the console in Fusion 360, using the photo as an inspiration, and using the Hyperpixel 4.0 display as a key measurement around which everything else is based.

This project is very easy to build; you’ll just need the components listed, and 3d print the STL files. No glue is required, though you may need some blutac to attach the screen to the case.”
