Update on 10/31/2013: I fixed the button issue, so now I'm removing the "work in progress" flag. Here is a video of a button test: http://youtu.be/qMG862HK114

This design works for both the Beaglebone and the Beaglebone Black, using the BB-BONE-LCD3-01, 3.5" LCD panel from Circuitco.
I've tested on both the Replicator 2 and the Replicator 2x, and aside from the buttons it works in both PLA and ABS, in it snaps together well enough you almost don't need screws (on the PLA version).
If you're printing in ABS please be patient, ABS prints of the buttons are a little finicky. You should use an obedient filament for those.


I printed all parts with the interiors down, in 3 layers and 0.2mm layer height. Print with raft and supports on all parts, except no supports on the buttons.

I really like your design!!
I'd like to use it, but I have a different size cape, can you share the CAD file ?

No problem Koterio, I just put them up for you, they are the two IPT files. These are Autodesk Inventor files. They have a version of Inventor that you can play with for free for 30 days. I recommend Inventor highly, but it sure isn't cheap.

Thanks !! I'll keep you posted on my work ... I'm new to all of these 3D design ... but I'll do my best :)
