3D Printed Deek-Robot USBTinyISP case

One of the other areas I wanted the 3D printer for was for the electronic boards and projects that I have acquired over the years.

The bare PCBs sitting in drawers and dragged out when needed could easily get damaged, and also risk being shorted out etc when sitting on the test with other tools etc.

One of my boards is a Deek-Robot USB Tiny ISP programming board. (DK-USBtinyisp V2.0).

I was going to start modelling a case in Tinkercad, but thought I would do a quick check on Thingiverse first, and sure enough there were a selection of different variants. One of the images had a board that looked identical, and sure enough in the description it mentioned 'Deek-Robot'.

I downloaded the body and lid STL files and then printed them out on my AnyCubic i3 Mega S printer, using white PLA with 0.2 mm layer, 20% infill, having first ran it through Ultimaker Cura 4.3 slicer.

It came out perfect. The board slipped straight into place, the lid clicked closed using a dome and dimple mechanism, and had 2 holes on the lid to see the LEDs on the PCB. I don't have any clear filament so left out the light pipes, but don't think I need them.

The case is approx 61 x 30 x 19 mm.

A successful print in about 1hour 45mins. Cura estimated 5.3m of filament used for a cost of €0.24 (based on €15/kg)
