I like how this fits together and it printed really nicely. The only thing is that I cant source the hub. Do you have any idea where the Makerspot hub can be found in the UK? Buying it from the states looks like it will cost more than a Pi3 just on its own!
I had a look at some alternatives on Ebay, but they seem to have the USB sockets on the opposite side and the two ends. I suppose I could modify the design to add holes on the ends, but I like the neatness of your design.

Actually I was looking for a case to put a Pi Zero W and USB hub for an Octopi print server but with this I could also unplug it, swap out the SD card and be playing games in a couple of minutes .... sweet

Sounds like a good plan :) Thanks for the comment!

I printed this out yesterday in black, assembled it and installed Octopi on the Zero W and it's running it's first print as I type this. It looks good sitting next to the printer and it takes up little space. I'll definitely recommend this to people looking to set up an Octopi print server with a Pi Zero W. I have about $35 invested counting the SD card and I have a nice 5V 2.4A power supply with a 5 ft cord with a switch left over (The printer already has a 5V 3A supply) for a Pi 3 project.

I have seen a couple of articles describing how to make a 'soft' power on/power down with a momentary switch and some code. It might be something to look into to really give this a professional touch and save from borking the SD card from not shutting down the Pi properly
