This is a desk mount for a 20x4 generic lcd screen with seperate encoder used on a Printrbot maker's kit (1405)

The Knob is http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:517242


Printed in PLA with 20% infill
The mount is my design, however i forgot to include cable relief, so i included a simple one to be printed seperately and glued wherever is required.

Printbot std firmware.
Uses generic I2C screen, but wired up to use full serial input from Printrbot revF4 board as generic frimware does not support I2C.
Seperate rotary encoder.

Diagram for wiring the lcd is for std screen, but with I2C screen adapter fitted pins 3.15 and 16 for contrast, backlight and gnd are already taken care of. Don't forget to connect pin5 to gnd though.

How did you set up the encoder to run on the printrboard?

Apr 19, 2017 - Modified Apr 19, 2017

I randomly came across this when trying to look for a case for an ESP8266-based device, using a 4x20 I2C LCD.

Taking a gamble I paid to have somebody print it for me, and it turned out wonderfully. Just the right size for an LCD & a push-button.

Thanks for sharing it - my first printed project, and I'm curious to see what else I can print now :)
