LCD Shield Fabster3D box
by JBFromOZ, published
Box to enclose the Fabster 3D LCD Shield in a nice little box.
Update - Release - final files.
Suits the LCD panel sold by http://stores.ebay.com.au/fabster3d?_rdc=1
LCD Mount Bracked added to suit Prusa Mendel 8mm rod frame.
Clearance added for nuts at vertex.
Through holes added for zip ties to secure to frame
2mm additional internal clearance added at rear of lcd panel for cabling runs
Mounting location set so that button is directly over the mount, all user force directed straight at frame.
Last photo shows pegs melted down to secure LCD to box.
Heated them up with a small butane torch then pressed them down using the base of a large drill bit
135 x 66 x 27.9 Box OD
132 x 63 x 6.5 Inset recess at base to allow assembly to sit onto "Universal" mount plate for machinery mount options. One such mount is included here, for Prusa Mendel
Knob Recess Ã˜12.5
LCD Opening 76mm x 26 mm, with setback to outer bezel 98 x 40.5 (0.9mm cover to LCD Bezel)
2.5mm side walls 2.4mm front face.
Corner bevels added for more "finished" appearance
Fit is good.
Pins and heights all spot on.
Next project is to make a mounting and suitable box for Fabster3D Arduino/ramps/LCDBoard combination for Prusa Mendel, in conjunction with this box, and my Power Supply box.
