I am looking for a case or stand to display my
nano Kenbak. Looking for ideas. Regrads, Bob

I could laser craft something for you.

Re a stand for the nano.
I had though about a "plate stand". This sort of thing:

Not sure how well it would work :-)
But I was working on a project with some laser cutting and tucked some extra bits in a corner:

Looks great.  I might have to fire up my laser give it a try.

A case is a great idea.  I printed this up today.

Cool! Would you be willing to share the .stl file for this?

Sure no problem.  Here are the STL files.  I took another run at the stand as well.

I can't believe it took me four tries to get this to print correctly. The first time I discovered the firmware on the new 4.2.7 controller doesn't support pause at layer/height correctly. The second time I sliced the model into three layers, bottom, letters, top. The first two layers went well but the to top wasn't aligned correctly. The third time I was so focused on alignment I forgot to swap out the filament for the letters. Fourth time was the charm. Thanks for the .stl file Mike. :)

Heyas all.  I liked this idea, but I wanted to be able to read the back of it, since I am not the Kenbak wizards that you all are. ;)

I started with Mike's file above, but I made some changes:
- openings added to the bottom so you can read the text
- 2mm taller to wrap around the board a little more
- a few small locking tabs were added so you can snap it around the board to hold it in place
- It's a few mm longer since the original it was too narrow to fit mine

- I also made a new stand from scratch based on the one in here, but a little bigger so i could fit my now-6mm tall uKenbak.

I'd like to throw the stl files up on thingiverse,  but as they're chopped up from your design, Mike, I want to get your permission first.  :)
STL and jpg files are attached.

Have fun y'all! :D
