3D Printing

Parts

There's just two parts for this project, the enclosure and cover. I added an extra stand just for propping up the screen. The case features a hole near the bottom center for inserting a tripod screw adapter (3/8" to 1/4") so you can mount it to any standard tripod

Slice Settings

I sliced the parts using CURA and Simplify3D. Both are great slicers, you'll have to adjust your slice settings in order to properly produce a tool path that is optimized for perimeters. The tolerances may slightly vary from printer to printer.
