Summary

This case was built around the W.A.R.S. (Waverley Amateur Radio Society) Powerpole Kit with Voltmeter.

I have also included a No Voltmeter version

Having built several of these kits using the supplied Jiffy box and cutting the hole out is usually a suitable option. We had some enquiries for a case design so here it is.

UNFORTUNATELY WE CANNOT SHIP THIS KIT OUTSIDE OF AUSTRALIA

I have included the Fusion360 design file that you are welcome to reuse.

For an alternative design have a look at this project:

(The photo is from the prototype.. I have increased the space for the first powerpole pair on the right)

The photo with the black base is using the original jiffy box lid with the new body.

Notes:

I have used PLA and ABS ok with this model. I think the walls are thick enough that it will handle a reasonable amount of external use. Use at least 3 shells on top layers so that the screws have something to attach to.

As Pictured, another option is to use the original jiffy box lid.

Post-Printing

Drill out holes

The LED hole is 5mm and the screw holes in the lid should be 3mm. The holes in the body should be 2.5mm to avoid the self taper pulling up the material. The "printed holes" are more for alignment than practical use. The screws from the original case fit but there is not enough depth for the rubber feet.
Or use the original "Lid" from the kit.

Glue or tape the voltmeter

I placed a small piece (4mm x 4mm) of thin double sided tape on each small side of the voltmeter and wedged it in the gap. (You might only need on one side)
