NZRpi Case

I got my Raspi board last week. First thing I wanted to do was to design a case for it.
Using Pro E, I designed this case. After a few trials, came up with this nice one and printed
on my 3D printer.
If you are interrested, let me know. I can send the .stl version of the design files.
You can print it yourself.
Enjoy !!!

Really like your case! But I don't have a 3D Printer... Is there any way you can ship one? And if so, what would be the cost? I see you're in New Zealand, and I'm in Utah.

Would you be kind enough to send me your stl files? This looks like a great case and I have a Makerbot I can borrow. Thanks!

Would you be so kind to send me the design file.

I am a school teacher in the U.S. and would like to have a multidisciplinary project for my grade 9 students to make a number of Raspberry Pi available to an inner city school for their students to use.

I have petitioned the school to purchase a low cost 3D printer and would like to use your design.

Nice work. Have you tried connecting your HDMI port? Seems a little bit too deep... Maybe you need some improvements here?

I have added new files with ventilation holes on the bottom part of the cover.
Please visit my website to download the .stl version of the new design files.
