Atari 400/800-, XE- and XL-themed enclosures for the eclaire mini Atari-8-bit-compatible computer.
These models were created from measurements of foft's enclosure and a rough model of the board. As I do not own an eclaire mini, I have not personally verified that they fit the motherboard. A huge thanks to Gandor for printing, beta testing, and posting photos to help me finish these models.
The unified models are included so that you can visualize the assembled shells from different angles. Do not attempt to print them.
A blank top cover is supplied, and the other has an indentation for affixing a logo plate (requires supports when printing).
You might need to trim the outer mounting tab of the SIO port to fit the board in the case. Some shortening and trimming of the standoffs and supports might be required. Ideally, file or carefully grind them down until case fits and the ends still contact the board.
Requires 4x M3 machine screws. No screws are used for the center standoffs. You may need to trim or remove some of the center standoffs to install expansion boards.
No cartridge guide is included. You can use foft's cartridge guide which is available in post #114 and here:

Supports might be required for models that have vents and structural elements that sit over or near vents.
