3D Printed Housing for External Vive Wireless Card

Sorry I am not providing details as I want to get this info out quickly. I will respond with info if anyone shows interest, though I might be slow.
I'm not sure if anyone remembers the talk about extending the range of their Vive wireless setups. Basically, you can get a PCIe extender (built for bitcoin mining rigs I believe), and use USB 3 to move your Vive Wireless WiGig card 35 ft (CORRECTION: 20ft) to your computer. I have found that it works great for me.
But you end up with this exposed computer board just sitting there in your room with nothing to keep the board from sliding out of the extender socket and nothing to protect the board while also allowing cooling.
I took enough measurements off of the board to create a 3d model of it that captures the design information needed to create an enclosure.
I also created a 3d printable enclosure that is "good enough".
I haven't posted it because "an artist's work is never done", but if I don't post what I have, I might never post it.
So please let me know if anyone is interested in a model of the card and enclosure. Note that the enclosure is specific to the dimensions of the extender I bought, so minor tweaks might be required if you have a different extender.
Here is a picture of the final result (yes I used tape for my prototype that I never developed further)
I designed it to be modular (see the joiners I left open in the picture, in case a part of the print fails or needs fixing) and also it does not require supports. (Shakes fist at designs that require supports!)
(I would appreciate advice on how to get the image to show up in this post, I don't do this a lot)
Here are the exact two products I bought from Amazon. No guarantees. At the time people were looking into extending the wire from the card to antenna, but my first try didn't work.
Beware, the part that you plug into your pci slot can, incredibly, be put in backwards and still fit. Also there is nothing keeping the extender in the slot.

I can't find an exact link that I followed for recommendations, but there are tons of hits here:
