Heres a Control Panel part for the Tronxy X5S printer that features a front panel micro-SD card slot. It uses a readily available and inexpensive "Extension Cable" that can be bought off of eBay (and I assume elsewhere). It's just a few bucks and worked well for me.
As part of the design I used BOSSES and 4-40 hardware so that the LCD control panel was mounted from the "back side" of the panel. This hides the fasteners and makes the panel just a little better looking (in my opinion that is!).
This panel can be mounted off of the frame (just like the original) or used with my prior upload so that it is tilted at a convienent angle.
Your Choice PLA
Make sure your printer is calibrated so that opeinings and hole sizes are reasonably accurate.
