I think the vacuum form process will not hold accuracy well enough. I'm researching a bit here at work too. I have lots of tie ins to the automotive & manufacturing industry.

Rough guess? About 0.20" or so. The mounting screws to hold the board to the enclosure aren't very large.

Injection moulded plastic is probably the best but the reason you have to buy min 10000 pieces is they have to make a die and if you never buy more they have to cover the cost

I used to have contacts in that biz but not anymore. I had a great little shop in middle of nowhere China that would do the mould and do a run of 250 just to get their name out there. They had good quality stuff and met tight tolerances too. Ended up supplying me a lot of parts. They had 0 overhead so that's why they could do it.

I have used the services of http://www.mfg.com/, and had real good results.
I had some very low volume plastic and machined parts made at reasonable prices.
It is a reversed bidding process and the pricing can be all over the map, but it may be worth a shot.

This company is in WA. May be worth speaking to them.

Would it be an option to release a 3D model of the enclosure so folks who want one can 3D print it themselves?
Just trying to think outside the box a little...

I was just about to ask about this. Any chance for this and to buy the board separate?

Not yet. Working on the drawings I need in order to get a quote. I'll hopefully be chasing quotes next week.

After careful consideration, we've decided to redesign the board to fit another commercially available enclosure.

The size on this new one will be better than our last choice and the price for the redesign was more advantageous than the work necessary to get a custom enclosure.

The new case is a lower profile and is fully transparent. It also has optional mounting brackets. The new size allows us to reroute a couple of the components in a more efficient manner as well.
