Hi ! This is the case i was searching for ! Really cool.
Although i own an Ender 3 Pro. I just realized after printing the raspi side, that this case does not fit :-( The stepper is in the way and also about 1 cm the case of the raspi part (maybe the other one too) is too large to fit. So i took my saw and worked on that. Now it fits.
What i would prefer instead of the raspi "fix clips" are screws. Also the plugin for mini USB has not really enough room for the cable (i still need that). Maybe you want to add also some clip possibility for the powerline cable that goes through to the motherboard.

i would like to give an update on my experience with this things
--> I took a saw and cut that part away that got in the way. Also my raspi was a little bit to hard to put on the hold and it a little bit too much space in the ports. First part i fixed with a file. Now i need to have an additional LM2596 on the pi side. My USB power plug for the raspi was too long, so it got compressed on the wall. Some more mm´s (5-10) for the pi to the center side could help that. I see no use in the part of the wall, that is on the back of the center side. It hinders the power cable somewhat. The back and side walls and the ground are really stable (exspecially because of the vslot plugins additonally)- so maybe it´s an idea to lower thickness a litte bit. I think that much stability is not needed (this is an assumption! needs testing). The fix clips for powerline and the Raspi screws would make this thingy more reliable.

Hey! This look like what I was looking for ! There seems to be enough room to fit more buck converter also. I have 4 installed do you think this could fit in the pi case ?

Also, could you post picture of your setup ?

I've posted a picture (not in this reply, but in the general images) of the setup in real life with the covers removed.

There would be more than enough room in the left box to fit 3 more buck convertors. The Pi only takes a small portion of the space.
