This case would be commercially manufactured using the exact same plastics, trimmed and cut out using a CNC, screen printed in exactly the same way with the stickers produced and attached. When i say exact, i mean exact.!
I am hoping the final price will be around £55 posted in the UK, final price depends on the interest.
A lot of effort has gone into this, and was never intended as a commercial venture, but after discussing the idea in the FaceBook groups i was inundated with requests for more information.

Note that these ARE NOT being 3D printed. But are being vacuum formed and screen printed.
jomac wrote:Vacuum forming is hellishly expensive when you consider that machining the moulds alone will set you back circa £1,200 and that doesn't include the costs of someone doing the CAD file in the first place. Then someone has to CAD the CNC for the cut outs and holes, someone else has to set up the screens for the screen printing.
If the remaining problems are ironed out, the arrangements will likely be that I will take payment and send the cases out to any QL forum members that want them.
So if you are interested in buying one or more, please reply in this thread. Please let me know how many you wish to buy and which version (four choices).
Note that at this stage, consider this a pre-order list. By posting here, at this stage there is no legal obligation to buy. I will post again when I have more information.
