3D Scanning

I have a friend who is a Solidworks guru.
As a favor, I've asked him to have a look
at the test scans, and maybe render one as PDF

he is travelling right now, so this will not happen instantly

Werner's idea to add an opening that normally
(out of factory) has a filler plat snapped in has
great merit IMO.

I believe that will require a new
mold for one piece of plastic (the bottom).

Let;s consider at the same time increasing the vertical depth
of the bottom half of the nanonote case, to allow greater freedom for
adding PCB(s).

yes, this will make the Nanonote thicker, but has the nice
side effect that no other pieces of the case need to change.

although 3d printing is far too expensive for volume, it would
be practical to fab some small quantity as an alpha test.
