You're always going to have a fitting problem with it, because of the simple fact that with the dissipation of heat, the plastic polymers used for printing tend to shrink enough that they're not suited for precision fits. The only way i see that would work is with a few tries of resizing it above size to allow a margin for shrinkage. In my opinion that's just too much work and wasted money. If you want to go for it there is some information on the web regarding specific printing materials/brands and their tolerances, but honestly in the end it's all about trial and error. Injection molds are really the proper way, but then again out the range of the wallet of us mere mortals.The specs say approximately 140 x 84 x 29 mm, and that's the problem. As WizardStan said, even a small difference and the PCBs don't fit.But with the dimensions being off, how can you print the exact dimensions if the most exact dimensions given are "about the size of the pandora"? Or are the raw numbers still in the file and you just have have to add a unit? I really have no clue as I never 3D printed anything and have no experience with such files.
140 x 84 x 29 mm, as stated at the technical specs tab of this website.
