We have also thought about what I will call ‘sidebags’ which would be compartments that attach to the sides. There is no active work on ‘sidebags’ yet but if you tell me the sort of size in cm dimensions that may be of use that would help me for thinking about future enhancements. As I mentioned for the top we have a product enhancement being worked on but do not yet have work on the side compartments.
Although our Raspberry Pi side code is on our public github using open source licenses we do not share our mechanical design files without an NDA.
We do understand the need for us to come up and publish a form of ‘Mechanical API’ of details on the most logical points users are intended to connect to so as to make the sort of task you are describing easier. We have not gotten that far so far so at this time manual measurements are still required for customer modifications.
