• The 3D Printed Case

    I decided to order the case I designed from Shapeways, and it came in today. I'm very happy with the outcome.

    The pressure fit for the heat sinks couldn't be better. Now I just need to make the circuit board, which should be really simple. Then see if it works. My concern right now is the fans may not be able to pull away enough heat. I won't be putting a battery in this. It will be USB powered.

    Put the housing together with the known size of the parts I'm using(Peltier, Fan, Heatsinks) and now have a board size I can work with.

    Should be all dimensioned for a shapeways print in Nylon. I will throw together a really quick PCB since its only a couple components. Board can be 32x15 which is a good amount of room. There is also room for a small LiPo, but I believe I will have to have a much larger one put on the bottom for it to be any good, and keep cool.
