I would totally buy that. I have a neat clear acrylic case for my Raspi 3, but I'd definitely replace it with this!!

Yup - I'd be in for one of those as well.

Too bad the printer files aren't referenced anywhere.

You guys will be proud: today I switched the window manager on my Raspi 3 from the default to Window Maker. Smile

It seems to have enough space to put a fan inside, useful for pi3.

Cool - thanks. I had seen that before, but hadn't noticed the downloadable STL files. Now that she has released those, I can order my own Cube from a 3D printing service.

Where did you have it printed? I was looking at Sculpteo, but did not get to looking at pricing yet.

Hello NeXT Community: We are going to experiment with this , it is a game changer https://3dprintingindustry.com/news/now-can-print-metal-3d-printer-85255/ How cool will this be a mini metal cube, I'm going to research and see if they have a magnesium composite plastic to metal filament as this would open up not only the mini cube project but replacement or custom tailored modified parts for the cubes and slabs ! Smile

Aluminium composite will be a very expensive print, try just PLA , mine costed me £45, I quota 100% metal and it is really expensive
