The dovetails now fit perfectly - Alex has designed a cracking case for me!

It will be having a trial fit for the internal components, and getting a paint job :-)

Awesome Craig! Dovetails look great! Good luck making everything fit inside, hopefully there should be plenty of space.

Thanks buddy - I'm just so glad I haven't butchered your handywork! :-)

I think everything should fit nicely; my main threat is the chunky HDMI cables and splitters that are going to be in there, but I think I can get them in.

Need to estimate where my HDMI panelmount is going to go and also make a hole for the MicroUSB charger (and also think of adding speakers) but once that is done I am going to amend the file and have the affected side panels re cut. This think is going to be glorious!

We've also made the Hackaday.com main page in the trending section :-)

Nice touch with the engraving. I was hoping to take a peek at the design for this case, but your Dropbox files do not work.

Thanks buddy! I've uploaded the file to Dropbox - I completely forgot to keep it up to date!

Cheers man!

I've got to be honest; I cheated. 20% filed, 80% dremel :-)
