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 designed the enclosure in Autodesk Fusion 360. The case houses the electronics while the top and bottom parts will snap fit together.

 

We split the cover into individual pieces for 3D printing with a Dual Extruder.

 

The inner ring is printed in translucent material so the NeoPixel LEDs can shine through the top. To 3D print the enclosure, we used an Ultimaker 3 and slice the parts in Ultimakers CURA.

Slice Settings

 

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

 

  • 210C Extruder Temp
  • 65c heated bed
  • 1.0 Extrusion Multiplier
  • .4mm Nozzle
  • 0.38 Extrusion Width
  • .2mm Layer Height
  • 30% infill
  • No Supports
  • skirt
  • 60mm/s | 120mm travel speed

Dual Colors

 

We included a dual color version of the knob cover to allow the NeoPixel ring to diffuse it. Use your preferred slicer to align and combine all three parts that make up the individual parts of the knob. Use transparent filament to allow the led lights to diffuse the knob cover.
