For the stand you will need to pause the print to drop in the magnets. 

The case has a built in support for the USB port which will need to be removed, and possibly filed down some. 

Also there are two holes drilled through the bottom to get at the reset and ground pins (needed for programming). These were drilled by hand because I totally forgot to add them when designing this

Haven't logged on in a while, that's awesome you made one! How is the plate holding up for you? I also tried using a printed plate but it just didn't weigh enough for my liking, so I had a steel one cut
