A derivative to RyGuys Arduino Mega 2560 R3 Plate.

I removed the Bottom lid and merged both stl files into one with blender so I could print it in one piece.


It seems that the first version fit on mine but on some other it did not fit (I tried it with 5 arduino boards and 3 of them fit on it but the other two didnt).
I added a version 2 where i changed some parameters like the size of the pins to 90% and added 1mm to the length of the holding area. I hope this fixes most problems but please check the sizes with your arduino board before printing.

I used 10% infill and 0.4mm layer height. No support needed.
One edge bent up a little during printing but it was still ok.

I made one, but I found the tolerances are too tight... The pins don't fit into the holes in the Mega, and the little lock pin wont fit in the slot... Great idea though.

Hm I did not have that problem. It fit mine perfectly without sanding or anything. The lock pin is a very tight fit but that is as designed i guess. (I just took RyGuy's version and put the two files together).

I used Slic3r 0.9.2 for slicing it.

I haven't yet gotten around to upgrading from 0.8.4, so maybe I'll try that and reprint sometime. Great design, I just need to do more tweaking, I guess...

I rechecked the size with an arduino board of a friend. His board has 1mm more length and his usb and power jack are a little closer together.

I try to scale it to that sizes maybe that wil fit better for your board.

Looks good! I need a bigger print bed...
