Update 5/2/17: I'm probably going to redo the design to make it more 3d printer friendly.
This is a work in progress, and I do not expect anyone to print this right now. I'd almost say don't print this at all since I'm not done. This upload is only here to show off what I'm working on and to get some feedback.
My buddies and I used to create box mods in Altoids tins back in freshman year of college. I had thought about designing and printing one for awhile and decided to go ahead and do it.
Biggest challenges I'm facing:
-Battery and battery door fitment
The battery contacts are meant to be made with thin sheets of copper, but aluminum foil would work as well (I imagine). I know I can buy battery sled and even just the contacts themselves, but I wanted to try my hand at making them from copper to save money potentially.
The battery door starts life as a solid model with no vents. This way, I can add whatever design I choose. I have many other variations of the door (the one shown is mine) and I will upload the rest once the project comes closer to completion. The tolerance for door fitment on the device is tight. I shaved material off of the door to make it go on but it's still tight. I made have to rethink and rework the design. Any suggestions here are appreciated.
The box was made with that rounded side to improve ergonomics but I had missed a few key points. The box is very small and a little awkward to hold because of this. I recommend having small hands to use this. The other issue is the sharp corners on the other side of the box. This issue can very easily be rectified.
The parts used to complete the box are:
-Low profile 510 connector (22mm)
-Momentary Switch (12mm)
-15k Ohm resistor
-Wire and shrink wrap tubing
-Copper sheets (Brass or aluminum would work fine)
Alunar m506 (anet a6)
Took 4.xx hours
The supports are a pain to remove.
How I Designed This
Designed by making a model of every part I would need to create a vaporizer, then I made a shell around it in 123D. I then looked for possible problem areas and create 3 variations. OpenPV_v4 was the point where I said "Looks good. Let's print this puppy!"
