To make the PIvena you will need access to a laser cutter and a 3D printer. The PIvena is designed to be cut from 1/8" baltic birch plywood. The corners and hinges print great on my UP! mini and I've been printing in ABS, but I don't see why PLA wouldn't also work.
Hardware wise you need:
(36) - 5/16" length 4-40 screws
(11) - 1/2" length 4-40 screws (11 for the B+ version, 9 for B)
(4) - 5/8" length 4-40 screws
(6) - 4-40 nuts (6 for the B+ version, 4 for B)
(3) - 1" length standoffs
(4) - 1/4" length unthreaded standoffs
(1) - mini usb cable (it gets cut and soldered to the 2.1mm barrel jack)
(1) - 2.1mm barrel jack
(1) - 2.1mm barrel connector for the LCD screen power connection
(1) - 5V 2A power supply with a 2.1mm barrel connector
(1) - HDMI cable. I used a 1ft flat cable from meritline (http://www.meritline.com/1-foot-high-speed-flat-hdmi-a-m-to-hdmi-a-m-cable---p-75691.aspx)
The "all_parts printed" file should be the easiest to print from. I placed everything very close together and it should print great with no support material. The individual STLs are also posted.
The "pivena_lasercutter.svg" is for laser cutting. The lines are color coded for my laser and might need to be changed for yours. Red lines need to be vector engraved, blue lines get cut first, black lines get cut second.
