3D Printed Parts

STL files for 3D printing are oriented to print "as-is" on FDM style machines. Original design source may be downloaded using the links below.

  • ic-case-frame.stl
  • ic-case-bottom.stl
  • ic-case-top.stl
  • ic-ring.stl

Exploded View

The CAD animation shows how the parts fit together. A ring of neopixels are sandwiched in between the two acrylic discs. The top cover snap fits onto the frame. The electronics are housed in the bottom cover with built-in snap fit tabs. The switch and USB port are accessible on the outside of the frame.

Design Source Files

The project assembly was designed in Fusion 360. This can be downloaded in different formats like STEP, STL and more. Electronic components like Adafruit's board, displays, connectors and more can be downloaded from the Adafruit CAD parts GitHub Repo.

Slicing Parts

No supports are required. Slice with setting for PLA material. 

The parts were sliced using CURA using the slice settings below.

  • PLA filament 220c extruder
  • 0.2 layer height
  • 10% gyroid infill
  • 60mm/s print speed
  • 60c heated bed
