I can confirm that M3 screws are to small to fit in the holes. M4 is too big, and would damage the CP if you were to use them. The design also makes it impossible to use Heated nut inserts for M3 to fix the problem.

First, really like the case! Prints very well.
Couple questions:
What is the recommended screw sizer for mounting? M3 too small M4 too big.
Can you link which battery fits in the case, maybe a couple suggestions from this list:

If you happen to have #5 screws, those should work also. (I didn't have any M3 screws handy when I made mine.)

Thanks! The standoffs are designed for M3 (.5 pitch and 5mm long) screws but I can see the holes being too small due to shrinking after printing or different extrusion width (line width in cura). Should be able to tap them though.

500mAh and lower should fit good. https://www.adafruit.com/product/1578
They're listed in the guide here: https://learn.adafruit.com/case-for-circuit-playground

Sorry, not sure how I missed both the screws and battery, totally in the guide... should have known that your doc would be complete (as they always are). Thanks again!
