I haven't actually tested to see how long it lasts :P Also note that this case is for the BBW not the BBB--some slight modifications might be necessary. Good luck! :)
Very cool! just got a beagle bone black and can't wait to print a case for it.
Just curious, how long does it run on 4 AA batteries?
(This took my Ultimaker about 2 hours to do the base and about an hour to do the simple lid at 50mm/s)
This is a really nice case - the rounded corners are a nice touch (and match the rounded corners of the beaglebone). Its big enough to get it all in, but small enough to remind you that the beaglebone is incredibly small. It's a shame the mini USB isn't accessible, although it's not hard to hack o

I also can't see an obvious way to fix the (simple) lid to the box. Since mine is going out of sight, I'm just using a cable tie around it. Also I found the "locating lugs" on the lid that keep it in place on the box were a bit too flimsy and broke off pretty easily. There's enough of them left f

All said and done though - this is a great little case - thanks for making it!
