DO NOT USE the original files; the scaling is wrong due to putative bug in the Inkscape->SCAD conversion plugin (unless I just used it incorrectly; unsure). See comments for discussion. I have tried to provide a corrected version as "scalecorrected.scad" and scalecorrected.stl", but these have not yet been tested. The mis-scaled original files will go away soon.
Original design (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:65374) was SVG for laser cutting, but I had a request for a 3D print SCAD/STL version. I created this using DNewman's Inkscape extension for converting SVG to SCAD, plus a little manual recompositing.
See Instructions for more details.
(An alternative approach would have been to export from Inkscape as DXF and then use OpenSCAD's extrude function on that, but I didn't test that.)
See the original lasercut version for details on bolts to use, etc.
I haven't tested this 3D print version. I set it for 3 mm thickness to match the lasercut acrylic thickness of the Pibow, but this may not work well on some printers; you may want to try a little thicker; it's easy to set in the SCAD file.
I used smoothness 0.1 in the Inkscape plugin, which is pretty smooth; you can make a much smaller, simpler file with smoothness 0.2 if you want to go back to the original SVG.
Also, in the laser cut version, it was helpful to have an extra pair of spacer rings to put the case slightly higher above the VESA mount. You could print extra spacers too, or just mod the STL to have this built in.
