@rmahlert - progress on the Giant Panda and Case is a bit slow. Time and remaking some of the Giant Panda parts to make it stronger has been getting in the way.

Yes I had printed a backplane to get a feel for a bigger print. Once I get the new parts on the printer I will try and do a bottom case print to see how it goes.

Good luck with your build. I would make sure the long spans are very rigid and might need strengthening to reduce bowing.

Thanks Icky..

I bought 12mm for the Y axis, hoping that will be strong enough. If I ever get them! Shipped at the end of December, from Wuhan!! hmm.. wonder why it's been slow getting here???? Everything else I order the same day from other AliExpress stores arrived within 2 weeks.

I'd love to build something similar to your Panda. But, the extruded aluminium isn't a normal item here in the US.

Finally got some time to swing back round to the 3D model. I finally fixed the mouse / joystick port area on the bottom of the case.

Further back in the thread I showed a picture of one of the prototype 3D prints and the mouse port being incorrect. Green arrows show missing fillets on the 3D printed port and Orange arrows showing the cable entry being too flat on the prototype.

Below is the port corrected. Now I can move on to some of the other items that need fixing.
