Nice case and pictures!
Looking forward to the PowerPole addition.

I got one of these cases printed for my Pi3. I have
not put the power pole connector in place yet - will do that
later this evening when I have a soldering iron. There are nice
details in this design, like the little ledge the SD card slides
on when inserting and removing, the internal power pole
connector slot, and the knock-out for the IO port.??
I only made a small change to the case. I removed the posts
between the USB and Ethernet ports to provide a little more
air flow for the Pi. In all,??I'm very happy with the fit and
finish of this case. I think it will be perfect for my
intended use of the Pi3 DRAWS, and as an added bonus the
orange matches the shock case of my Android tablet which will
be running VNC client to talk to the headless Pi.??
Thanks to Frank for the upload to Thingverse!

Frank Ivan via Groups.Io <firstname.lastname@example.org
have uploaded a new 3D printable DRAWS case to Thingiverse https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3783961.
This is a case for Raspberry Pi 3b or Raspberry Pi 4b +
NWDR DRAWS hat with GPS port on side.
It is a modification of RPi3 DRAWS case by N0KZ.
SCAD file provided so you can help tune the design
STL files for both Raspberry Pi 3b or Raspberry Pi 4b -
print your choice
Has a powerpole power port
Nice fit for DRAWS card
Machine screws into card spacers hold case together
4 M2.5 x 8mm hex socket head machine screws (8mm does not
4 M2.5 x 11mm female to female spacers
4 M2.5 x 25mm hex socket head machine screws
Clean out screw holes - 7/64 or 3mm bit does it nicely
Install Powerpole connector - maybe use a bit of thin
double stick tape or super glue to hold in place
Install DRAWS card in lid. It's a close fit but should not
Push M2.5 x 25mm screws in holes and secure with spacers -
Plug Pi into DRAWS card - make sure it is aligned
correctly and pins go into correct holes
Secure with the 4 M2.5 x 8mm screws
Tighten every thing up with allen wrench
The Raspberry Pi 4b runs hotter than the Raspberry Pi 3B
so the next enhancement
should probably be a fan, perhaps sandwich a POE board
with its fan between the
Pi and the DRAWS hat.
