Tinkerkit Project Box WIP
by wildseyed, published
Update: 2013-02-26: Lids for the long box are coming this weekend. Also, individual module boxes, and multi-module tubes.
The plan is to expand this design to accommodate the Tinkerkit shield, and various modules. My first attempt at housing the modules can be seen in the 120mm parts. Going forward, I would like to be able to incorporate more modules, without needing a whole lot mor plastic. If you have any thoughts on how you would like to see the modules integrated, just post in the comments.
Right now, I'm planning on making individual push-together cubes to hold each module, with room inside to run the wires back to the main enclosure.
Optional feet on the lids will also be coming.
Lids for the larger box are in design stage.
0.3mm layers should give the right results. The enclosure can be scaled up for the MEGA. I will try and get my hands on a MEGA shield, and post the scaling numbers.
The box and lids are all double-walled, to eliminate warping. Delamination will be a problem if you are running your hot end too cold, or if your feed rate is to low. As you can see from the photos, I get pretty good results in ABS. The pads on the bottom have to be cut away completely, dur to the snug fit on the lids. There is enough length in the body, that if you want to cut away the last 1mm of layers, you can, and then the fit will be perfect.
