I was able to print out Rev 01 of the enclosure on my existing printer. It's a little big, like a gen 1 pebble watch. The  settings I used were a 0.4mm nozzle 0.1mm layer height with PLA. I was super impressed The watch band pins fit perfectly in with no drilling! probably only cost 30 cents to print. Already I can see a few changes I need to make to the general shape and use. Primarily I need to add a slot to make it easier to pop the mint case out. Should be easy enough to modify and try out. FYI although I could print it in PLA, PETG might be better as it would be less brittle. The flexible door broke off as my kids started fiddling with it. Another reason why the SLS nylon version will be superior.
