Cases, casings, mounts, housings and 3D printing designs

#1 Post by jsilver » 25 May 2016, 21:53

To complete my ESPEasy sensors & control units I'm designing a range of cases for 3D printing. Has anyone else produced designs for such items, and would you be interested in sharing them here? How many 3D printing enthusiasts are there amongst the ESPEasy fans?

Remco is the name of a 3D printer enthousiast, I'm sure he follows this forum so I expected this would trigger him to jump in. :oops:

Find dduley on this forum. He's big into 3D printing.

I'm also interested in creating some enclosures for my projects, i haven't yet bought the printer yet, can anyone recommend one?
I was considering the 'DIY' type where you assemble them, they seem a lot cheaper?

Rather than purchasing a 3d printer. I decided on a cnc mill - 3020T 3 axis version.
With this I should be able to make enclosures from milled perspex or acylic
Also should be able to mill pcb's ?
Any one tried this? Does anyone know which is best software for cnc milling - mach3 or linuxcnc?
Appreciate any feedback.
I'll post some pictures, once I work out how to use it.

I am using Galaad to mill housings and PCB proto types.

after some trial and error I managed to etch a double sided board
I have a ESP201 (upgraded to 4Mb)
surface mounted mcp23017 giving 8 (digital inputs) + 3 (relay outputs) + 2( 5v Outputs) using a ULN2803AG on the outputs
ADS1115 giving 4 analogue inputs (one of which is wired to the 3.3v AMS1117)
I have headers for 4 separate DS18b20
3 x leds howing relay status
GPIO 0 push button + Reset push button
Also headers for the I2C
using eagle I also managed to mill the enclosure
All built using 3020T 3 axis version Chinese mill.
