Helping to build a huge community around the upcoming Steam Deck handheld, Valve has helpfully released the CAD files for the external shell.
As Valve said on Twitter it's "Good news for all the tinkerers, modders, accessory manufacturers, or folks who just want to 3D print a Steam Deck to see how it feels: We've published CAD files of the external shell for download", to which amusingly dbrand replied with "So... no C&D then?" (C&D being Cease and Desist) since they announced their Project Killswitch case.
Valve did similar for the Steam Controller back in 2016. Hopefully with this move, we will see a much bigger tinkering community spring up around it. They continue to show just how much more open they are when compared with the likes of Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo.
The files are on their own GitLab under the Creative Commons license.
