3D Printing

The 3D printed parts are fairly easy to make with most common home desktop 3D printers that are on the market.

And if you don’t have access a 3D printer, you can order our parts by visiting our Thingiverse page and have someone local 3D print the parts and ship them to you. 

We used wood filament from Hacthbox and WoodFill from colorFabb. Both allow you to sand and stain the material to give it a finished look.

Slice Settings

 

Download the STL file and import it into your 3D printing slicing software. You'll need to adjust your settings accordingly if you're using material different than PLA.

Clean up

 

We used a flush diagonal cutter to clean up any stringing  and overhangs around the port openings and around the standoffs inside the enclosure. 

 

Make sure the openings for the USB ports are cleaned before mounting components. Use a hobby knife to help cut away stringing that could block components from mounting. 

 

To remove the brim, we used a deburring tool to remove the sharp edges on parts.
