Improved version of the case for the the LC-100S inductance/capatitancy meter. This instrument is readily available at very low cost (approx USD 30) on ebay and elsewhere, but comes as a bare PCB without a case.

This new, improved version is based on the improvements made to my original version by linearchaos in http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:376273 . It is tuned even more, and also adds a real button for the "Func" key.

There is one variant for the 4-button and one for the 3-key version of this meter.

See build instructions for useful hints. (The picture shows the old version)

Note: If you consider buying this meter, you should also look at the meter in http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:641003 as an alternative. It can test quite a few more types of components.


Should print straight ahead in PLA without any additional support. The upper part has support tabs included around the LCD. These should be broken or cut off. The button may need some cleanup with a sharp knife.

Needs 8 countersunk 3 mm screws for mounting.

Further improvement of the design can be done in the attached SCAD file. The two modules are called "upper" and "lower".
