    I think that if I had printed it in ABS and there was a percent or so shrinkage, it would have been tight - I printed it in PLA and it was a perfect fit - the Pi slid right in with zero effort.

    The end cap has to be crazy glued on - I think I would look at changing the cap to use a friction or spring fit of some sort if redesigning.

    For thos eo fyou that missed it - the time lapse it here:

    Don't forget that your power supply was designed for LED strips.
    You can power the light directly from there, no need for aditional transformers.

    Yes, the printer power supply is a normal LED transformer.

    Where on the power supply can you get the power for the LEDs?

    So, we could probably wire the Pi in to the power supply as well, and tuck it inside?

    Yes we can - although ive heard that we can only get 1A, so we cant give alot power to USB ports.

    Connect the +12V to any of 1,2,3 and the -12V to one of 4,5,6.

    - - - Updated - - -

    The Pi uses 5V 1A, so you need to transform from 12V to 5V because this power supply does not output 5V.
    Thats another reason why a PC ATX power supply would be great, outputs 3.3V, 5V and 12V, and most of them with more than enough Amp.
