Summary

Once I decided that I was going to drive my new Wanhao D7 using a Raspberry Pi running NanoDLP it was time to start thinking about how to keep things neat and tidy. This is version one of that effort. It is probably going to stay version 1 for a while as I finally have resin arriving tomorrow!

This thing is now really two things. Since my workspace is far from level I decided that I needed adjustable feet. When I did that it was noticeable that there was room under the printer for the Raspberry Pi. Hence this new thing. I have kept the RPi mounted "bare" on the base as an aid to cooling it. Note that the photo shows the RPi in the center when the STL shows it to the side. The side is better for running of the video cable.

The original thing was built around the Raspberry Pi case by 0110-MP that you can find here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:922740.

One last update! This thing is now three things. In this latest variant I moved the RPi to the front and added some space to tie down cables. There is also a special joiner that fits on one side where the other would have been blocked. You will see what I mean.

Hardware required: M6 Bolts and Nuts. Lengths of 20-25 or even 30mm will work. Ideally a half nut to use as the brake. Also ideally a hex head bolt though you can use a nut as shown on a round head bolt.

Assembly

It only fits together one way. The fit of the tower into the stand should be tight. For max neatness you need a 12 inch HDMI cable and a 8-12 inch USB cable.

Are there missing STL's for the leveling feet? I printed base front leveler and base back leveler and leveler locks, but I don't see the other round feet pieces shown in your picture.

Sorry about that...I will upload in a bit but you can find the top here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2265488

Bits have been uploaded. BasePiBoltRetainer slips into the bottom of the base to make sure the nut stays put. May need to be secured with glue. The top and the lock also there now.

i can not slice the joiners with simplify3d. can you please merge the BasePiUnderFront and BasePiUnderBack to one model? i have a buildplate that is 300mmX300mm so i can print that as one piece.

I have uploaded single piece versions of both bases with the Pi under the printer. I personally like the one that has the Pi forward with a tie down area for any extra cabling.

Thx you are the best. :)

What size hardware is that you are using on the rpi mount and leveler legs?

Sorry. I updated the other thing that is just the adjustable part but did not have the hardware here... M6 Bolts and Nuts. Lengths of 20-25 or even 30mm will work. Ideally a half nut to use as the brake. Also ideally a hex head bolt though you can use a nut as shown on a round head bolt.

Sorry, I work in 100x due to ideosycracies in Sketchup. Usually I note this but forgot here I guess. They should be ok now.

Was wanting to print this but it is sized very weird. I can't import it into any slicer. The measurements are like they are 100x what they should be. The BaseBack measures 20147.75mm x 11144.63mm x 4160.84mm
