Programmable case for electronic project to be 3d printed

Post by Goleon »

Hello!

I designed a programmable case for my electronic projects to be 3D printed and thought would be helpful for others.

The data to define the dimensions are in the datasheet part of the drawing and are self explanatory, at least for the first part.
The second part of the datasheet is related to the screws and as of now it's fixed at an M3x8 with flat top, see the picture here.

The file generate automatically also a 2D drawing with the major dimensions which is usually handy, although you need to check it every time before printing it (PDF?) as one view reset every time you open the file. If someone has a fix for this, please let me know.

You can export the cover and the body separately in STL for slicer and 3d printing purposes.

Here's one example

Hope you use it and all suggestions are welcome!

Uau!
Thanks!
Indeed is more elegant.
I'll check to redraw with the links for the programmability as well as the automatic 2d drawings
