added main body v2, and cover v2 to support the new iteration with integrated USB C
This is an open source collaboration project with Electronrancher, who created a mini SAMD21 board with CR2032 backpack available at:
This device is primarily used for launching custom payloads on the Nintendo Switch console to run homebrew applications. However, the device can also be used as a dedicated microcontroller for DIY projects!
The case itself has 2 versions, the original which has access to the reset button via a hole in front, and an alternate version with video game aesthetics.
The full enclosure is printed in 3 pieces, simply slide the Printed Circuit Board (PCB) in place, friction fit, or glue the slider cap onto the power switch, insert a CR2032 battery, and finally slide on the lid of your choice. The design features a small bump to prevent the two halves from accidentally sliding apart, yet can be removed easily to replace the battery.
The lid has also been designed to fit short sections of clear 1.75mm diameter filament in the two front holes to help pipe the light to the front. Drill the holes to 1.75mm if needed and place the case face down flat on a work table. Insert the sections of clear filament and cut them so they are 1-2mm above the hole when the case is lying flat. Finally use a soldering iron with a broad/flat tip set to 220C to melt the filament into the holes from the inside of the case.
Print with at least 2 shells/perimeters. Files print well in uploaded orientation without support, however support may increase quality on some machines.
