Update on 12/20/2017: Now that I have been able to complete a successful print of the unit, and confirmed full fitment, I have moved it from "In Progress" to completed. I was trying to get it finished before the Holidays, though I ran pretty close.
Update on 12/17/2017:
This update was to rework the power/aux access. A test Print is underway at this time. I would also like to thank Jenne for her assistance in doing some test prints on this during the design process.
Major Files Update On 12/16/2017:
Everything was resized to fit correct diameter of unit.
Main Body was split to accommodate smaller Z-Axis printers.
The new Amazon Echo 2 is a bit lacking in "curb appeal", so, at the request of a fellow maker, I decided to make a house for it to better represent my personality. Echo 2 should fit nicely inside, but all of her Microphones, Speaker Holes, Function Buttons, and Top Lights are fully visible and functional.
This is a redesign of my original Tardis ( https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1727128 ) used to cover the original full sized Echo. I do not currently own an Echo 2, so this is based on the published dimensions of the unit. If there are any issues with fitment, please let me know and I will make the needed adjustments to this design. Until I am able to confirm the fitment, I am going to leave this as a work in progress.
My Replicator has a couple Mods done to it to make the prints cleaner. You will notice on the base of the unit there are some holes that did not bridge well. That was NOT the printers fault. That was all me. I had set the Roof number to 2, and it was not enough to clean up the bridging. All other parts this was set to 3, and you can see on the top that it worked much better. Below are the settings I used for the print, as well as the printer mods that have been completed
Also used is Simlify3D as my slicer. I have found it performs much better than the Makerbot software. I like having more control over the print settings.
