Thanks for the info, I'm still waiting for 3 more quotes for the v9 scad file (like the look of it – very professional looking)
I'll keep track of this post and see how things progress for you – but i'll post any quote costs I get just to let people know.
Received the shapeway case, very well finished.
Top and bottom part fits like a glove, connector holes are very good done
Put the shapeway version in public and I adjusted the design a bit:
- made the case a bit higher, so that only the usb goes through the top
this will make the top a bit stiffer, more room for the logo
- made the side studs a bit thicker
- made screwholes in bottom a little larger
- made the logo a bit larger.
Because the case is now a bit larger, more material is used, so it is a bit more expensive, a little more than 19 Euro (including VAT) see : http://www.shapeways.com/model....._case.html
I will check the thingiverse version for a 3D printer tomorrow and see if it needs any adapting.
let me know what kind of price you get…
Make sure you know how it gets printed, and what kind of wall thickness you use.
2 mm walls for a 3D printer like RepRap gets you a nice sturdy case
The 1mm walls I used for the shapeways version are less stiff, but still ok
