Expansion Card Shims

Hey there!
I got myself a FW and I am loving it. I have noticed that the expansion cards are a bit recessed (maybe it is just me):

So I printed some shims to even things out:

It’s a simple thing, that could be done with some cardboard, but my FW deserves better! Here is the .stl Framework Laptop Expansion Card Shim by Ingegneus - Thingiverse. Change the thickness in your slicer, if the shim is too thick or slim for your expansion card


Thanks for sharing!

thanks! I’ve never noticed that, I just looked at my framework and it looks like the left side expansion cards are sitting flush while the right side is slightly recessed.

All of mine are slightly recessed however if set them flush (which feels lovely) I’m able to pull some of them out without depressing the release button.

Why did you curse me with this knowledge… Mine are slightly recessed as well.

I actually removed the shims because of this :confused: The next best thing might be to print them and customize the design so that they are flush.

sorrryyyyy :joy:
