Ok, it's taken me ages to getting round to finishing it, but my 3D printable Amiga 500 case for Raspberry Pi (B+/2) is now finished (as a 1.0... lol!)

I haven't yet printed one so I have no idea if it will "work" so is still WIP, but by all means go ahead and give it a go if you can! (I won't be at the printer next until tuesday at the earliest...)
I had to make a few concessions to make it fit a Pi and be a bit easier to print but it still looks pretty cool :)

Nice work! (y) I've also been thinking of doing 80's style generic computer-in-keyboard case for the Pi.

(hopefully) final update...
I had trouble slicing the top with slic3r and after talking to some 3D print bods, found that it needed 'fixing' so it's been run through netfabb, and now the top stl has gone down from 7Mb to 1.5, and it slices nicely.

of course it still needs support generated and in slic3r that means unticking "don't support bridges" (unless your printer can bridge 10ish cm of gap...) so next will be a trial print from me :)
