It worked "fine" for me with the following caveat: At the moment all the supplied cables "just" plug in but space is very tight for the 6 pin DIN cables. So long as the screen is perpendicular to the stand they "fit" with a right angle bend in the cable (bad form, that). About an inch or so extra clearance would be ideal and allow the stand to lie back. The issue is really just with the DIN cables.
There is a 3D print standoff design in a previous post that I am playing with trying to get a very inexpensive PLA printer to make with reasonable accuracy. It has a lot of overhangs, so that may not be possible with that little toy. If I get nowhere, I will order a pair from the Thingiverse/Makerbot site where it was posted. My first rough out prints do fit and will lift the screen up for full clearance but will not be amenable to taking a good finish. They are ugly... and I am a little fussy... and a newbie at the 3D maker art.

How does the DRAWS work with the SmartiPi case? I saw some comments that there may be issues with the cables interfering with the stand. Not really a problem since I do not use the stand, I have mine on a VESA mount for mobile use. The DIN connectors should be okay, but the other connectors may be an issue. The pictures show two connectors on the left side. I guess one is for power, but I don't know what the other one is for.
I guess I'll need to run the RPi/DRAWS from the 12V lines and the touch screen from the 5V supply.
I do need to see the NWD response however on the 12V variations before I spend money on it.
