The OnShape online tool was used in order to design the structure used for the bedclock. It exports STL files that you can use for 3D printing.

Note: A huge thanks for making this part of the project possible goes to Brian Bailey, my friendly CAD guru.

By printing this project in multiple parts, there is no need for printing support fillers. Since the parts have nice cavities for the table pins, you will have no problems aligning and binding them together.

There is a third and smaller part for covering the RPI on the back side of the frame. You can see and print that from thingiverse.com.

We used regular PLA (Polylactic Acid) filament, which is widely common.

 

Once printed, have these parts connected using table pins as shown here.

More details will be provided on the assembly section, but here is a picture showing how the 3 main parts go together:

  • Top bezel
  • Front bezel
  • Matrix display
