Hi Everyone - Upcoming Ultimaker 2 addict - Electronic Enclosure.

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I just subscribed because I am willing to buy a Ultimaker 2 printer. In fact, this printer seems to be one of the two best 3D printer out there, close to close with the Zortrax. But I like the fact that with Ultimaker you can choose more filaments, more open source.

I am starting 3D modeling, a real beginner - just few hours with the software, but I want to build my own electronic longboard enclosures.

Just to show you what I am talking about, here a photo; you will the enclosure taken from a hard drive enclosure, and dremeled and adapted to fit my needs.

But well, I would like to get something more custom. Here is what I have just modeled; I was thinking to print it in ABS... maybe 2 or 3 mm thickness.

This enclosure is around 21cm x 15cm x 2.5cm.

I also added the internal electronics, just to help but of course these won't be printed :)

I also modeled another one, just to find out how I will be able to fix this to the board.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
