Having setup my laser cutter with a wall mounted monitor I wanted to mount my Raspberry PIby the laser cutter which lacked desk space nearby. So I came up with the idea what if I could make something that I could attach the PI with my keyboard and mouse. Hence the Raspberry PI plate was born.
The main features for this project include:
- Keyboard mount & storage holder for a mouse
- PI mounting plate which attaches to the back of most standard monitors (universal fitting)
- Holds USB Hub up to 4 connections
Again this project is nearing completion.
- Height 250 mm (10″)
- Width: 200 mm ( < 8″)
- Depth: 180 mm (7″)
In final development stages.
All hardware and electronics are complete.
No software is needed.
Documentation & downloads are currently a work in progress .. but coming soon!

Shortlist of components used for this project include:
- Raspberry PI + case
- PLY or MDF Laser cut pieces
- 2 x Fixit blocks
- 4 x USB HUB
- WIFI Aerial (USB)
- Mouse & Keyboard
- 5V Power supply
- 16GB Memory Stick
How it works
- PI Plate The laser cut pieces are attached using fixit blocks, screws and nuts.
- The Raspberry PI is then set up and attached to the back of the monitor using the monitors mounting screw holes.
- The plate projects below the monitor and can be adjusted to fit neatly at the desired height.
- Keyboard & mouse can be attached and rested on the plate.
