Raspberry Pi Model B+, 2 B and 3 B Case -- NextcloudPi

This is a simple or quite complex acrylic lasercut case for the Raspberry Pi Model B+, 2 B and 3 B. It is my love letter to the NextcloudPi project. I've added an activity icon, same used by the Nextcloud project, to be lit up by the Pi's built-in activity LED's on the front and top of the case. Optionally, you can choose to inlay the case as I've done + add an optional GPIO 5mm LED that looks awesome and is controlled via python commands.

Simple option is to raster etch the logo on a single color of 3mm Acrylic.
Complex option is to inlay two contrasting colors of 3mm Cast Acrylic, as seen in the photo, such as blue and white. To inlay the acrylic you'll need to glue it by hand (instructions TBA). For my personal cases I also decided to expand the PI's lighting by creating an additional 5mm LED header on the GPIO, which is controlled by python commands (TBA if requested).
