    Does anyone know of a project box that will fit this and maybe have a cutout for the USB connector?

    I'm still waiting for the order to ship so I'm not sure how the spacing is on the mounting holes.

    There is no project box available that I know of which will have a square cutout for that USB-B connector. You will have to cut the hole yourself. Choose plastic or aluminum. You will need a round and square file.

    Check shapeways.com.

    People design 3d objects in CAD programs then dsubmit them to shapeways website. You can order one and shapeways.com will "print" it in their 3D equipment for you and pay the designer a commission.

    See attached iPhone case. You can search your project boards name. It is amazing the projects that are available. Cost is buy the gram. Parts are light and strong but not full density so it is rather cheap for a short run (less than $30 for the geared iPhone case shown.

    Well I found out the size of the board is 2.2" x 2.7" x 0.4" if that helps.

    Way smaller then it looked in the pictures
