    macegr got a reaction from RedoX in 3D printed G2LP and 5529LP bumpers/cases   
    OK I just uploaded them rather than try to fix them first...you all can probably handle it anyway
     
    msp430launchpadbumper.ipt: Inventor part file for the basic Launchpad bumper
    msp430launchpadbumper.stl: Printable STL file for the basic Launchpad bumper
    5529LaunchPadBumper.stl: Printable STL file for the 5529 bumper only (no lid)
    5529case.stl: Printable STL file for the 5529 bumper and lid together
    5529LaunchPadBumper.ipt: Inventor part file for the 5529 bumper only
     
    I don't have the Inventor file for the lid only, because I made a few mistakes referencing it to the other half of the case...it's hard to flip it over to orient the STL output correctly.
     
    You'll also find that the lid slides horizontally off the 5529 bumper pretty easily, because I don't have any stops to prevent that...it's what I planned to fix before uploading but haven't gotten to it yet.
     
    The forum won't allow uploading ipt or stl files directly, so it's all rolled into a ZIP.

    macegr got a reaction from tripwire in 3D printed G2LP and 5529LP bumpers/cases   
    Hi...I was experimenting with some cases and bumpers to protect LaunchPads as they float around on a desk or in a box of parts. The regular LaunchPad bumper is based on some existing concepts, which I used to create a new design in Autodesk Inventor. The 5529 bumper-case is the same basic idea but with a snap-on lid to protect those easily-bent pins on the top. I just moved to Dallas and need to dig out my 3D printer (among other things) in order to refine the designs a little, but should be able to post some STLs in here soon if there's interest.

    Haha, was playing with the 5529 case and suddenly realized I'd accidentally designed it to allow snapping the lid onto the bottom of the case, too.

    Haha, cubeberg...glad you liked the stuff. Honestly it was based on what I could access at the time...just moved everything to Dallas so it was pure chaos around the house. I do like the ChronoDot...once I spent hours building up a pair of custom USB-I2C bridges to communicate to a ChronoDot and a DS1337 using libusb; wanted to track drift versus the ntp daemon over a few months. I had to scrap the project because after a few days, the data was useless....the ChronoDot plot looked like a horizontal line and the DS1337 plot was a vertical one.
     
    The LED shades are modular and the front panel is controlled over I2C, so I fully plan to make a 430 version and possibly a couple other uC variants. 5529 is making it a lot more attractive for this application. But for now the main challenge is getting any of them made at all, hinges and assembly time are blockers.
     
    I got SMD component measuring tweezers from rachp, they will definitely come in handy!
