3D Printing

What If I Don't Have A 3D Printer?

Not to worry! You can use a 3D printing service such as 3DHubs or MakeXYZ to have a local 3D printer operator 3D print and ship you parts to you. This is a great way to get your parts 3D printed by local makers. You could also try checking out your local Library or search for a Maker Space.

3D Printed Parts

All of the parts are 3D printed with FDM type 3D printers using various colored filaments. All of the parts are separated into pieces to make 3D printing easier. Assembly is pretty easy and straight forward. Use the links below to download the STLs files.

Slice Settings

These parts have been tested and 3D printed on an Ultimaker 2+ and 3 using PLA filament. The parts were sliced using CURA 3.x with the following slice settings.

  • 220C extruder temp
  • 65c bed temp
  • 0.2 layer height
  • 0.38 line width
  • 2 Wall Line Count – 0.4 nozzle
  • 20% infill
  • 50mm/s print speed

Enclosure Design

To house all of the electronics I designed a parametric box using Autodesk Fusion 360. Most of the components will be paneled mounted or secured to built in standoffs with machine screws.

Design Source Files

The camera body assembly was designed in Fusion 360. This can be downloaded in different formats like STEP, SAT and more. Electronic components like the PAM8302, Circuit Playground Express, potentiometer and speaker can be extracted from the Fusion 360 Archive.
