This is the case for the Measure the Future sensor, based on a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B and a Logitech HD Webcam C525. There are two different setups for the sensor, one designed to sit on a shelf or ledge, and another designed to hang from a drop ceiling grid with a ball-joint for positioning.

You can mix and match the ceiling mounts as well. There's a Flat ceiling mount that can be screwed into a ceiling or mounted with double-sided mounting squares, or the drop ceiling mount that can be clipped over a ceiling grid.

If you need a different mounting type, please leave a comment and I'll see about adding it, or model it and let me know and I'll add it to the collection.

I'm getting ready to print a case out, and I was just wanted to be clear before I start.

It looks like you print a case for the actual raspberry pi, and then that goes into a larger case that holds the camera which either sits on a shelf or is mounted in the ceiling.

Am I seeing that right?

Yes, that's right. I designed it that way simply because I wanted modularity for the board inside...if we decided to move to a new microcomputer board, or if we go to a new model Pi at some point, I didn't want to have to scrap the main enclosure. It also helps with wire management (you can tuck the wiring from the camera under the Pi after it's slid into the mounting rails).
