kristofferis: Is it possible to get the CAD files for the enclosures or maybe you already have them exported to .stl so that I could load it to my 3d-printer and print some enclosures.
Or will the enclosures not be open source? So that I need to create my own?

Hi! We can certainly release that file after our last modifications and improvements have been made. If you haven't seen it posted on our website, please check in again with us about it in a couple of weeks to a month.
That being said, the enclosure has some designs that would make it very tricky to print at home (unless you happen to own a very fancy 3D printer!). The file may help you to design your own enclosure that you can modify to create with your own printer.
Finally, we will be providing enclosures to all our kickstarter and Indiegogo clients as soon as they are available, alongside anyone who ordered an mc-Plug. We will announce when those shipments are going to be taking place
If, in the meantime, you come up with a nice design and print some enclosures, feel free to share your files for other users on the forum )

I made a very simple enclosure to the mcModule, I am placing modules on many strange places in my house to verify the wireless connection and when I am placing them outside my developer room then i think it's better to have them protected.
As you could see, this is not what I do for a living but at least it is keeping my modules safe  :)

I have now made the Source and the STL files available.
You will find it on Google Drive
mcModule enclosure

Please let us work together on this, any ideas or comment just post and we will see what we could do about it.

This is Mark I of the enclosure, a very simple layout just to protect it from damage.

Hello McAdmins,

Anything further on the status of the plastics? Perhaps McPlugs also?

@Garnet - The plastics have still not arrived to us but they are on their way! Due to some issues with the quality from our initial molds that we received, we have been working to make sure that the quality and design was up to standard. The plastics that are arriving are not just the mc-Gateway enclosures and the mc-Module enclosures but also the plastics we require for the mc-Plugs. While we are waiting for the plastics we are moving forward with building the mc-Plugs so that we can send everything out in one shipment.

Thanks for checking in on this! Rest assured, we want to send these out to our backers as soon as possible. You should see some updates from us as we get closer to shipping.
Thanks!
