Is it ready for mounting in a Mendelmax?

PrintBit's design for a MendelMax box is a nice mounting solution:

WE are currently supplying the Panelolu2

which does not yet have a similr mount for MendelMax but if you asked for it without the LCD attached t the circuit board you could adapt PrintBit's design.

I prefer to have the Panelolu/Panelolu2 unmounted so I can move it around.

Panelolu Box for MendelMax


Have just received one of your kits and am printing out the parts for left hand side fitting. I have noticed (bit late now as it is half way through printing) :( that the R B C letter on the front part are the wrong way round I assume due to the mirroring from the right hand ones. Thought it would save anyone else having this problem as they can fix it before printing.


The files are now updated - The other mirroring error will affect how well the breadboard mounts so I think you will have to print it again - so sorry!

No problem thats the reason for having a 3d printer to test stuff out :)

will let you know how it goes.

Hi Ken

Sorry I did check and change this - just checked the scad and it also has another error (the support for the screw to close the case below the click encoder does not mirror across). :-[

I will update the scad and stls now and upload them.

Oh, I see, you also out the SD reader in the enclosure. Nice, nice.

Excited to see your detailed instructions mate! So your enclosure holds the LCD, the click nob, the reset switch, britpghtness knob and contrast knob. You wire them up and run them to a ribbon cable socket. So, you could actually just as easily run this to a RAMPS board or whatever really, right?

Yes - LCD, buttons and knobs and the SDSL (so if you already have an SDSL you can use that already) The ribbon cable goes to an iDC connector that plugs over the iSP and expansion header on the Sanguinololu but no need to fit the IDC if you want to connect it up to RAMPS. The only thing is there need to be the right number of pins left from the ATmega to run the LCD, click encoder and SDSL.
