Is this a 50mm fan?

Got to agree with you about the R-pi hole sizes... That extra .5mm in overall board size mad all the the difference.
I always drill mine out to 3mm.

Hey there I need this model edited cause there is no good cases I can find and I need the specs changed to fit a lattepanda board I've tried to get it edited as I don't have a laser cutter only a 3d printer (the same model I found of this for printing I edited but doesn't fit my printer) plus ive had a lattepanda almost a month and havent even opened the packet as it has so much underneath it just laying there would be harmful and out of 16 companies in Australia no one will even reply after 2 weeks except 1 which wants $150au to cut and $200 to edit and I'm on a pension and thats almost half of one of my 2 monthly payments and I won't survive spending more then $150 plus I got shipping could you please do this for me you don't understand how much it would be appreciated

Very cool design. Any chance you could whip it up about x1.5 the size but still fit the pi3 ? Would like a little more weight so that it doesn't fly around the tv stand when someone uses a connected peripheral

It's a bit light weight, true. I solved this by using a long USB extension and a hub. That way, it shouldn't be possible to rip it off the table anymore.

But yeah, adding weight certainly gives it a nicer feel. It changes a lot of things, though. I think I won't do it just for this purpose.
Couldn't you just add weight to the underside of the enclosure?

McNugget, thank you for the cool case design. I will fiddle with it to scale it up. I want a larger unit to fir the TV stand like a normal sized console. My fav pi case so far. Nice work

how do you pre-paint this design. if you want a good shine on it, wouldnt the paint crack when you assemble it on the living hinges ?

Hm interesting thought... I just used Acrylic plaint. That remains a bit flexible. I guess it will be sufficient to use very thin coats.
