I have been working on the design of a ExtrudrBoard casing for double or triple extruder systems. Expect an update to be released soon!

I have noticed some Micro-USB plug ends are different length, they seem to differ in about 1mm making it hard for the short plugs to properly reach the board..

Some day I might change the layout to allow the use the short plugs without cutting or carving

Does this design leave access to the reset button and reset pins?

In deed it does (for the button that is). I usually fit the hole with a short domed hexnut M3 screw and put a nylock nut on the inside to prevent it from falling out. Then just press the screw from above to reset...
If by reset pins you mean the 6-pin ICSP connector next to the u-SD slot, then those are also accessible.

Great box, had to bend the transistors over though to get it to fit over the board.

Also had to thin down the dividing wall to give a little side clearance to the transistors so lid would align with base.

PrintrBoard Rev D Enclosure
by usafhas

Well true, the enclosure were ment to fit on a revision E board (smd transistors) so I actually never considered this while designing the thing.
Thanks for the feedback :-)

My Printrboard seems to fit just fine, but my 40 mm fan (40 mm measured between the mounting holes for each side) is way too big.

It is my understanding that a 40mm fan has 32mm between the holes and is 40mm along the sides.
So I guess your 40mm fan is actually 50mm...?

You are correct. I did not know that. I guess I will just have to source a real 40 mm fan then. Thanks for a nice enclosure!

You're welcome, hope you'll enjoy :-)
