Nice design! Minor Problem, the hole is slightly at the wrong spot

Same here. The holders and the hole on top are some millimeters incorrectly positioned.

Apparently, there are some different versions of these boards with slightly different dimensions. Feel free to download the OpenScad file and customize it.

What is different about the F2 version?

looks like it just have diffrent corners

While the two pieces snap together really well, I was hoping for some more positive retention system. Any chance you could add something so that a wiretie could be used to hold it together as well? Using wire ties for strain relief was brilliant.

Anyone using this with PLA or will it soften it?

Last one I made from another design I did in ABS but PLA is easier. I guess PETG is an option as well.

I printed up a bunch in PETG. I wish I had some fire retardant filament. Maybe I should have used the conductive filament I had as an anti-static safety measure.

Great design, perfect fit. Thanks!

Made one and stuck one of the cheap chinese buck boards in it to run my octoprint RPi box off of the main printer power supply. At 12V, it draws around 300mA and gets slightly warm to the touch. Will be keeping a few of these around for the inevitable project that needs one.

Does it get really warm? like "PLA starts warping" warm?

This will be very useful! Thanks. Great design BTW!
