Does this fit the 3+?

The Ender 3? No, because it collides with the big bed levelling knobs.
Check the remixes of this thing, there is this one https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3090773 with the mount offset to avoid collision with larger knobs, there is also this one https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3054306 that is just the case without the mount.

No, I apologize I should have been more clear, does this case fit the raspberry pi 3 b+, I want to use it in the cr-10

Yes, the dimensions of the Pi models 1 B+, 2 B, 3B and 3B+ are the same.

great mount - fits very good on my side without any scaling.
But be careful if you have extended leveling knobs - it will not fit what I just learned the hard way.

@ficacador: is it possible for you to set the mount completely to the right side? (front view)
Would be gread! Thanks

@Wiliwonka sorry to hear about that, I don't have extending knobs on my CR-10, didn't think of that when I have designed this.
There is a remix done by @C4KEW4LK that has the mount to the side: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3090773

cool, exactly what I was searching for. thank you.
maybe i will try that later, at the moment i switched to another case which I mounted at the control box.

How does it stay in place? Just it just kind of click into the rail?

Yes it clicks in.

Just a heads up I made this case but it does not work if you have the bed level knobs they get in the way

This is a great looking thing! Aesthetically it ties nicely into the overall printer. Two things worry me, and they both come back to HEAT. Its current location has it right under the hot bed, while it probably will not be enough to melt the plastics, I would be concerned about the operation of the RaspberryPi over the long term, so you may want to keep an eye on its operating temp, maybe moving it away from that location if needed. Secondly, if you plan to build an enclosure for your CR-10, it could become an oven in there and cook your Pi. I am planning on using the pi enclosure included with https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2774986 as it keeps it away from the heat and enclosure, and gives me a place to store my stuff.

Thank you!
The heat from the bed doesn't worry me because my bed is well insulated with foam and aluminium foil.
If I plan on building an enclosure the Pi and the control box will be left outside, preferably even the motors I would like to be outside or have openings next to them.
My current enclosure for printing ABS is a large garbage bag and it actually works good enough.
