The case was designed using the modeler AC3D, I've been using this tool for various projects over a number of years (though never for a 3d printed model before), so am pretty comfortable using it. A Raspberry PI 2 / B+ model was sourced from Thingiverse to construct the case around. I can't locate the exact model I used now, however there are a number to chose from including this one by jayftee. It's always a bonus when somebody else has done the hard work of modeling and exacting object for you.

From the outset I hadn't intended to clone a ZX81 case, the original being a design classic in its own right. What I'm after is something reminiscent of a classic 80s microcomputer but with a contemporary feel. A kind of modern clone. Hopefully within the next week or so I'll find out just how successful I've been.
