DIY Raspberry Pi Desktop Tower Case with OLED Stats Display

Hey friends in this video I will show you how to make 3D Printed Raspberry Pi 4 Desktop Case with OLED Stats Display Setup.

This mini Case is 3D Printed and sides are made of Clear Transparent Acrylic and it looks very awesome with the RGB Cooler Inside.

This ICECUBE Tower Cooler Does the job very well, maintains the temperature 33°C at normal use and at intense usage it goes around 50°C.

The OLED Stats Display shows information about the IP Address, CPU Usage, CPU Temperature, RAM Usage, Disk Usage.

All the connectivity ports of Raspberry Pi is accessible from the front and side of the case.

Laser Cutting 2mm Clear Transparent Acrylic Sheet

Laser Cutting requires DXF files:

Download ZIP • 19KB

Installation of Raspbian OS

Download SD Card Formatter:

It is used to properly Format and Erase Data from SD Card

Download Raspberry pi Imager:

It is used to flash OS in SD Card

It is the official Raspberry Pi OS, Download the latest Version


  1. Erase Format the 32gb SD Card with the SD Card Formatter tool.

  2. Use Raspberry Pi Imager and browse/Select the OS you downloaded

  3. Select the SD Card

  4. Flash the OS into SD Card

  5. After successful Flashing, Eject the SD card and plug it into Raspberry Pi

  6. Connect Display cable, Power Cable, Keyboard Mouse to Raspberry pi and Power on

  7. Complete the Basic Setup as shown in video and Update the OS completely.

Connect OLED Display:

  • GND to Ground

  • VCC to 3.3V Power

  • SCL to SCL (GPIO 3)

  • SDA to SDA (GPIO 2)

OLED Stats Display Configuration:

Open the Terminal:

Update and Upgrade the Pi with following Commands and Reboot

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get full-upgrade
sudo reboot

Install Python

sudo apt-get install python3-pip
sudo pip3 install --upgrade setuptools

Install the Adafruit CircuitPython library

sudo pip3 install --upgrade adafruit-python-shell

sudo python3

press y and hit enter if any prompts to reboot.

Check if your I2c OLED Communication is detected

sudo i2cdetect -y 1

you should see a table with 3c address for OLED Display

Install OLED Display Libraries

pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-ssd1306
sudo apt-get install python3-pil

Download the Python Script to display Stats

git clone

Navigate to the downloaded directory

cd OLED_Stats

Run the python script to display stats


Now you should see the stats on the OLED Display

Steps to Run Python script on startup automatically

Open crontab

crontab –e

select 1 and hit enter if any prompts

Add following line at the bottom of the script in crontab

Copy the downloaded script files and PixelOperator.ttf from /home/pi/OLED_Stats to the location /home/pi

on terminal Press ctrl+x to save and exit

Press y and hit enter to save the crontab

If you followed all steps correctly then after every startup you can see the stats displayed in OLED Display

Assemble the Desktop:
