I've added some more space to fit the Wemos.



Could you give me the distance between both USB ports (ideally measured from their center)? Then I could move the terminals to the correct place.

Wow! Now that's an impressing drawing :D

I've modified my CAD according to your measuring. I assume that this is working although your USB ports aren't at the same height.
In case you need something to raise the whole PCB, give me a shout.


I can't do a test print to look if everything fits as the PSU of my printer died yesterday :(
So feel free to do so or wait till my printer is up and running again by the end of the week.

Thank you LordVader
I think I need to add some frame to keep the PCB in place

Sure, why not.
Can you measure these distances?


And are you able to move the capacitor next to the pcb? Otherwise we would need to make the case much thicker to achieve more clearance for it.
Furthermore I could then add a little platform for the whole PCB so that the right USB port is better reachable.

Thanks.



I can move the capacitor next to PCB (it won't be very nice, but why not). I would also remove the part under USB ports, to get ports closer to the wall?

That's what I've done now. I'm not really happy with this as this doesn't completely prevent the PCB from moving around in the case.
Do you think that you can use one of the PCB's holes to screw a tiny screw into the case? I would then add a pole similar to the one for the microphone but smaller.

Just got a better idea. This will need some time for CAD'ing.
Coming back later :D

Thank you. I hope it's not too much trouble  ;)

One more idea ;D ;D
If the USB ports will be closer to the wall. The round holes could have square shape (maybe a little bit bigger / few mm,  than the USB port itself)?  Than the wall could have the same height around whole power block.
Does it make sense to you?  ???

Looking at the USB cable you are using I can see, that making the hole smaller would lead to making some USB cables not work anymore, unless we make the outer wall really thin.
I think that we can stick with the momentary solution if it's not bothering you. Or do you want to make the power block thinner to achieve a better look?

That's what my draft now looks like:
