3D Printed Parts

Parts are designed to be 3D printed with FDM based machines. STL files are oriented to print "as is". Parts are listed below with file name and description. Parts require tight tolerances that might need adjusting slice setting. Reference the suggested settings below.

Part Files

Here's a list of the parts used in this project. Order goes from left to right.

  • pyp-bracket.stl
  • pyp-back.stl
  • pyp-box.stl
  • pyp-top-blank.stl

Slice Settings

Use these settings as reference. Values listed were used in Ultimaker's CURA 3.X slicing software.

  • 0.2mm Layer Height / 0.4mm nozzle
  • 0.38mm Line Width (inner & outer widths)
  • 40mm/s printing speed
  • 20% infill
  • Supports: No

CAD Assembly

The enclosure is made of three pieces that snap fit together. A frame features mounting tabs that are used to secure the PyPortal PCB. Front and back place plates can be swapped out (Use a spudger to pry open). The PowerBoost PCB is secured to a bracket that is fitted in between the 3d printed frame and PyPortal PCB.
