A compact enclose for the PanelDue 4.3" display, frame mountable complete with back plate.
All of the 4.3" PanelDue enclosures available for the type of display supplied by Think3DPrint3D are quite wide, and look a little unbalanced due to there not being a rotary control knob implemented. Also, I didn't like the fact that on the display I had, the control board needed to sit off to the side.
So, I hacked together a straight-through 40pin connector from the display to the controller so that I could mount the controller on the rear of the display. If you happen to have a retro 40pin ribbon connection from an old CD-ROM or IDE HDD, this would work just as well as all you need is a straight through connection for each pin.
As I wasn't worried about regular access to the erase/reset switches or the USB input for flashing new firmware, I didn't put any holes into the enclosure for theses. It's a 20 second job to remove the back plate to access these on the odd occasion it's required.
The enclosure can be mounted anywhere on the frame that you need - I prefer it central, hanging from the top rail between the tool control arms - it doesn't get in the way of anything and looks tidy in my opinion.
The enclosure has a back which is just secured with two self tapping screws.
