Printing the Case
Printing the case really depends on your own printer but here are some basic guidelines that you can adjust accordingly.
Download the latest set of .STL files from our Github here.
Choose a filament that stays rigid enough in the max temperature your house may reach on a hot Summer day without the AC on :)
We use nGen filament for this reason but also because it prints easily and reliably.

HestiaPi's case comes in 2 parts. The backplate that goes
to the wall and should not be visible and the front cover. The backplate should have 4 small holes, 4 larger holes and an opening for the wires coming from the wall.
If you bought HestiaPi, all necessary screws are included. Otherwise you would need:
4 x 2.5Mx25mm hex screws
4 x 2.5M hex nuts
4 x 3.5Mx40mm non-countersunk screws
Place the hex screws through the 4 small holes entering from the side facing the wall. Secure them in the hex slot and make sure they are sit flush. Remove the LCD from the PCB and insert the PCB alone guiding the 4 screws through the 4 corner holes of the Pi and secure with the nuts. Avoid using a large tool. You can simply tighten them by hand. Don't overtighten.
With the remaining 4 larger holes mark your wall and drill according to the location of the wires. The opening of the backplate should match the location of the wires. Secure the backplate and PCB with the 4 larger screws.
