Charge port weather cover for BMW i3 / i3s (I01, Mega City Vehicle)
Meant to reduce water influx and keep snow outFor your home
A permissive Free Software license that lets this work be widely shared with few restrictions.
My EV is usually parked in the driveway and BMW designed the charging port like the fuel fillers they did before.
While I don't doubt, that rain water will find it's way around the contacts, I stumbled upon Tom Moloughney's Blog post and possible issues with snow gathering there.
In Germany those outdoor faucet covers don't cost below three €, so I gathered some dimensions and designed this cover in OpenSCAD.
Also added some ribs, which might guide rain water around the port completely.
It's quite large and tends to warp, so there are extra supports added - if your dislike those, feel free to re-compile with the according parameters set to zero.
Materials and methods
dasfilament PETG "Sturmgrau".
Issues are used to track todos, bugs or requests. To get started, you could create an issue.
The design is not completely parametric, but for starters you can uncomment those ribs and set the sizes to your needs.
And the wall thickness to one line width for test prints (I needed three of those).
Nice job, Burning Becks! I don't have the same car brand, but I will keep this one in mind, as I can adjust the OpenSCAD file to my dimensions if this is going to help.
