Existing CAD model for PineCube?

I received my cube today and would love to protect it. 

Sorry for not replying sooner. I did finally find the files on my work PC, but I hadn't completed the conversion process. I was in the process of converting the files to Solid Edge (the CAD program we use at work), then to export to STEP. I completed that a few days ago. Now I need to convert all the STEP files to STL, and put the STEP and STL files somewhere where they'll be accessible.

The problem is that it's a complete mess. There are more than 50 files and their filenames are in Chinese characters, so you can't know which ones you need unless you open them all one by one. A few of them are for the enclosure, the trick is which ones! My system isn't set up for Chinese, so the assembly files aren't loaded complete. There's a "3D.sldasm" file which I believe should contain the complete PineCube assembly with enclosure and hardware, but it's mostly empty because of this. I had to open all of those files separately to export them.

There are three "slddrw" files which are blueprints, which would have helped tremendously, unfortunately, you absolutely need Solidworks to open those. Maybe eDrawings would work, but at some point I'm reluctant to install yet another program.

It's a pity that PINE64 didn't ask to get the 3D files in STEP format in the first place, with filenames in Occidental characters, and to get the blueprints in PDF. It would have made things A LOT easier. The time I've spent on this so far is ridiculous, and I don't even have a PineCube - nor do I plan to get one.
