    That page said "The parts are deliberately designed to be printable 
on a standard 200x200mm Mendel90 style 3D printer, so that even a 15.6in 
laptop may be created by printing the longest parts (260mm) across the 
diagonal of a Mendel90 print bed (280mm)."
    But I guess that 260 mm is not meant to span the whole back of the 
screen, considering things lower down on this message.

    Yes, the "youmagine"-page led to
"AUO B156XTN02.2" for LCD,
from which "duckduckgo" led to
which said
"outline size of 359.3(W)×209.5(H)×5.5(D) mm"
    I did not get the "PDF"-data-sheet offered there, because I do not 
have login-credentials there.  But the quoted numbers are probably 
correct, and are confirmed by

    359.3 mm width of LCD, plus 2 mm on the left, plus 2 mm on the 
right, is 363.3 mm, or about

14.3 inches wide for the top part of the "clam-shell".

    Thanks for the directing.  That about answers my question.
