I think I got the same case as @Cyprian posted for my Falcon. I have to say its quality is pretty good (by my amateur eye I would say it's somewhere near 80% of the quality of the original), it's amazing what one can achieve with good 3D printer and good material.

Wow impressive advancement with case remakes. Will there be anyone making them commercially or built to order? If not I take it I will need to learn 3d printing and buy some serious printer. I kind of like that one someone has built with embedded floppy and gotek the translucent one looks great too.

The case already has those features.

The case design isn't finished yet. The problem also is the huge shipping costs and risk of damage. My idea is to make the case modular and while it may look a bit different, it should be more "flatpack". Unfortunately that idea hasn't yet even been fully discussed yet. To many projects and not enough time as usual..

I purchased this one: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/204662424809 - it's sold out right now but you can try to contact him and ask.

Perhaps this has been asked before but how realistic would it be to use the final design for injection moulding?

I came across this page and they make it seem cost effective to use 3D printing to create an affordable mould (in contrast to creating a traditional metal one): https://formlabs.com/eu/blog/injection-molding-cost

I've been looking into 3D printing for an Amiga keyboard.
Unfortunately UK costs seem prohibited. But JLCPCB's 3D print side are very cost effective.
The price for SLA printing to give a nice surface finish is good, but it's one of those things where you really want to know what it looks like before you pay. The 3D model looks great!
I want a white case and their Resin 9000R is white, but I don't know if it will still need painting afterwards, which is extra time and money.
