Hi yall, 

Happy to share this iteration of a case for the most-demanded sandwich : Pi5 + NVMe Bottom and MacArthur HAT. 

This case fits Pimoroni, Pineberry and Geekworm NVMeM.2 SSD bottom HATs.
You should not need additional screws other than the one from the bottom hat + MacArthur provided ones.
I had to make some design choices regarding various aspects such as the power button, SD card, NVMe or cam/display ribbon ports access.
Feel free to share feedback or comments on it.

I've done a couple of 3D prints of it to tighten the fit, the assembly should hold firmly inside the case once enclosed with the 3 screws. 
Most ports are flush with the outer case and easily accessible. 

NB: I couldn't try the assembly with the power module on and connected. It might need some tweak if the power module is heating a lot

Happy Sunday!

Is the power button easy to access?

The power module does not get very hot, but maybe a few holes on top for breathing will not hurt.

Thanks for your message! Will definitely update, I had a prototype from top-notch 3d printers in hand and its great, just need a couple of adjustments.

lol, that will be an expensive case for you ^^ . That said, there is so much you can do with one, especially if you learn how do design your stuff.
Be careful because the overhangs and small parts of this case (holes and threaded parts) won't be great on low-end 3d printers. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions.

Cheers

I'll print you one Mat.  Any colour as long as it's white.

That would be amazing - thanks!
Kism I'd be interested in one if you're offering a printing service?
Hi there! Sure thing I will soon come with a finished product, with an updated design. The current one has a lot of weak points and so is not as durable as I wanted (:
It will be available in May.
Cheers
