Extrusion width: 0.48mm
This case was designed around a 0.48mm extrusion width. This gives the features on the case a bit of added strength. If the case isn't printing quite right, try adjusting the slicer's extrusion width.
Enclosure Hardware (Bill of Materials)
2x M2.5 Hex Nuts
2x M2.5 Nylock Nut
The ones used for testing were sourced from Trimcraft Aviation RC -- these should also be available on Amazon and McMaster-Carr.
Fasteners are ideal to tie everything together, but in a pinch, other stuff works too (i've tried all of these except for filament hot tapping:
- Zip ties (tightening the tie to set position is pretty interesting).
- Glue (cyanoacrylates/super glue/hot glue).
- Straightened 1.75mm filament (roll it on a heated bed) hot tapped with a soldering iron to fix it onto the ends.
- Tying somewhat flexible filament together (gets tricky, but it works).
Print everything individually, including the case covers.
Weave the camera cable into the case.
Cover everything, adjust positioning with the screws/other hardware.
Connect to a Pi.
