PCB etching box with microcontoller by axill Apr 26, 2013

Description

I designed it to help my self with my electronic hobby.
I had two versions. First one you will see as a first jpg image - I printed bottom and top of the box using my Replicator 2.
Test shows that printed thing is not sutable to hold liquid...
This why in a second version the major part of the box was glued using plexiglas.

I'm using PLA. It depends on what you mean by resistant. My printing thing is resistant to chemicals but not holding any liquid - liquid is goin away because of many small holes in a body of a thing. The bottom of my second version etching box is from plexiglas. The top was printed because fro top it is less critical to hold liquid. I also use some glue and brush to cover my top thing.

Great design! I'm considering building a similar box.
One general question: I imagine you used ABS as printing material. Is PLA also etch resistant? I'm using sodium persulfate for etching.
I think I could save some time, if somebody has any experience. :)

Instructions

- Do not print things with "sborka" in the name - it is just to illustrate the final construction
- Things with "vannochka_stand" in a name are the things need to be build from plexiglas. I made them using CNC. If you going to do them mannualy please adjust sizes because i use some slots
- the rest is for printing (mostly head of the box + box for microcontroller)

all was designed to be printed without raft and without support
