Update for this raspberry Pi Case http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:92208

I have trimmed the rail length on the back plate down to allow the newer model cameras to fit.

Slic3r crashes (or stops responding) everytime I try to prepare this, and reports something about there being a hole.

I would say give Slic3r more time to render it.

I did not create the original model, which has a crazy amount of curves etc in it. I only edited the STL to make the model work with the cameras layout.

For reference, I was slicing using the latest Repetier-Host / Slicl3r versions on windows, (0.35mm first layer, 0.1mm other) and it took AGES on my 5GHz Core i7 3770k with lots of RAM.

I actually took the original STL and your STL and imported them into OpenSCAD, then determined what it was that you modified, and modelled up the alteration to the original, and when rendering that OpenSCAD had the same issue.

I suspect that that and the hole issue are related, that something to do with the way the original model was made is not quite right. I don't know enough about modelling yet to presume to know the exact issue, but it just doesn't seem right, especially when things far more complex can be sliced in no time.

I am new to this as well. I just used 3DS Max, and bluntly used a boolean remove from a simple box shape on the compound object.

SledgeHammer/walnut maybe... But the model worked for me.

Let me know how you get on. Good luck

I am going to make up a raspberry pi case, with a camera as a single file soon, (complete with li-ion 18650 battery pack and space for a mini USB WiFi) . Sort of like an overgrown GoPro.

I just finished remodeling in OpenSCAD, and while it's not a 100% replica, is probably about 98% (the rounded corners are slightly off).

I haven't yet printed it to check if it works as I'm currently on a train and won't have access to my printed till late tonight, but I did test it with Slic3r and it took about 0.954 seconds to slice, which is a drastic difference.

Ill post both the STL and SCAD file, either after I've tested them, or after I've had someone else test them.
