Solidoodle Panelolu case and magnetic case mount
by lawsy, published
I have recently received my Solidoodle V2 and added a Panelolu LCD with rotary encoder and SD card support. The problem was I had no way to mount it nicely.
This design uses two of the files from the Think3DPrint3D case, and adds some other custom parts for a complete solution.
Edit: front and back case pieces tidied up and extended to create space for a fan switch.
Detailed instructions that supplement the Think3DPrint3D instructions for the Panelolu can be found here:
Solidoodle V2 printer:
- Print the front and back cases, as well as the new knob file.
- Use the screws from the Panelolu kit to secure the SD card reader and rotary encoder PCB. Push on the knob. This should be a tight fit and may require trimming with a sharp knife to the opening to get the right balance between fitting and tight.
- Print the magnet base mount and use a small vice to push in 7 rare earth magnets (1/4inch x 1/4inch). Rotate the stl so the flat side is down.
- Select whether you are mounting your Panelolu on the side or the top of the case and print the appropriate adapter piece. Rotate the stl so the flat side is down.
- Use the hex bolts, washers and nuts to close the front and back case pieces together. Fix the top/side mount adapter in place behind the rotary encoder with the hex screw and a self tapping screw.
- Print the locking pin and use it to hold the two mount pieces together.
