This is a remix/overhaul of a previous case for the Anet A8. i have cleaned up the cases mounting and other areas. changed the cable opening and moved a bit of the mounting locations. i have added a step-down converter mount and mounting location under the raspberry pis mounting location. the arrow on this mount goes with the arrow on the converter. I have also added fan mounting and covers. one set will work with the fans included mounting screws with 2 attaching the fan to the case and 2 attaching the cover to the fan. the other set needed a M3x25mm screws to go from the cover to the case cover with the fan wedged between.
EDIT: V8 i have added a hole on the bottom right of the case (when its standing up) for the left z axis motors wires.
