A Sofle RGB case designed and shared by u/drudge007.

This is a case for the Sofle RGB. It has a solid top plate and a shine-through bottom. The bottom piece attaches with 5 x M2 5mm screws. Once screwed in, put sticky feet on the circular pads and you're good to go.

I made my own case for my Sofle RGB in Fusion360. Why? I wasn't thrilled with the cases available, so I set out to make my own […] – drudge007.

The case was designed with the following in mind:

  • no screws inserted/visible from the top
  • a solid top piece so no seams or gaps are visible either
  • shine-through bottom because of the underglow LEDs

I wanted the underglow LEDs to actually shine-through, so the bottom plate would have to be really minimal – drudge007.
