Case design - Khadas VIM3/L modular magnetic click together case

Thats good to hear. We also have to check for this issues.

we also have to try and keep the case as slim as possible and accommodate the screen.
Good Luck.

Yes it is possible. What kind of WiFi antennas does Khadas use?

Can you confirm what the board thickness is at the mounting hole locations?

I’ll revise the model and post them here if anyone can print them. It does require some magnets and super glue to assemble. Then take the feedback and revise.

I am thinking about buying VIM3L when it releases.

I will also need dimensions of the 7” touchscreen to make a mounting case for it.

Wi-Fi and Bluetooth antenna.

Will share the thickness in sometime.

Thank you! What is the typical WiFi mount look like? I can’t imagine something that wouldn’t get in the way when you remove the bottom cover.

As an example, you can see how they are mounted in the Khadas DIY case here, and here.

Thank you, I see now they are panels. Do they have adhesive on the back, or is that why the case needs improvement?

There are small tags on case that will clip and hold them neatly and solid
You can just see it in image


One could probably uses double sided cellophane tape to stick them. Not sure if that would affect performance, I doubt it would.

One more issue that how to protect the cooling fan without small part falling down the the fin of the fan, you can check the NextC for reference:


I’ve updated 3D CAD Files for (most) of our products:

.step Files:

You can also find them linked within the Khadas Shop descriptions for each product.


Nice design, probably as Gouwa was saying have something on the top over the fan like a wire mesh, or an air filter like the 120mm fans in computer cases. It would not only help prevent bugs or loose articles from flying in but also keep dust out that would reduce airflow or short something.

@Gouwa speaking of the Next gen case when is that going to be up for order loving my DIY case but would love something a little sleeker, also does it have exposure to the GPIO pins should I need it?

The NextC case I showed above is not for VIMs but for Edge, but we just finished the ID and still no plan to build mold at the moment :smile:

Any designs from 3rd-party team is encouraged :heart:


OK, thanks for the clarification.

Updated VIM3/3L CAD files, there was an error with the height of the USB-C port:

Some of the funny requests we receive everyday:

A GENERAL ANSWER: As far as I am concerned, you can put almost anything in to almost anything else,…just need a little imagination and a Dremel tool,…oh, and sometimes a hammer.:laughing:

When my M2X arrives, we shall see.:grin:


You forgot duct tape if things go awry.
