UPDATE3: The 001 piece didn't update properly when I re-uploaded. So I re-re-uploaded and now it's the correct part with the mounting pillars on the left and the bigger hole for the USB/SD.
UPDATE2: enlarged some holes, properly aligned and repositioned the pillars for the Melzi board. Not it should all fit together and the SD card should be accessible.
UPDATE: first version had the screen inverted, re-uploaded with fixed files (thanks Enrique)
This is a TronXY base that can be printed in small pieces on the actual TronXY. I was inspired by the other bases available. I did however want to be able to print it 100% on the TronXY X1 with NO MODS. I also wanted it in smaller pieces just in case something goes wrong. Another big plus is you can customize the parts really easily with your logos and designs or extra holes. They are mostly flat panels with only the required holes, no big names or lettering added so you can just add whatever you want.
All source files included (DWG for autocad 2010+, DXF for Autocad 2007+ and whatever else you can import it into.
The biggest pieces are the bottom pieces (140x140mm). If you don't have your printer tuned for this size you could just skip the base and cut it from cardboard or whatever else you have on hand. The biggest side-piece is 120mm long and the case will work 100% without the bottom if you glue the sides together.
- Make sure you have a properly leveled bed before printing. These are flat parts so they will be very dependent on having a reasonably leveled bed.
- The only part that MAY need supports is the 'rounded corner'. This is the only part that I printed upright and I managed to get it done without any supports. I just cut off the crappy parts under the overhangs.
Mounting the pieces together
You can glue these together with superglue/epoxy/UHU or whatever. I just press-fit mine and just dabbed some super-glue on the joints and they held up well.
There are no tolerances included on the joints, they are intended to be lightly SANDED or FILED before being press-fit together. Mine went together without much issues. The base has 2mm of tolerance in the grooves the sides slot into, so even if it's not perfect it should still fit together.
You can also fit the whole power brick INSIDE if you so desire, there is ample room.
Designed in Autocad
All source files are included, you can use them with any software that can load up an Autocad DWG or generic DXF file. This is so you can add text or designs or whatever you wish to the panels.
