I like the design much! Just downloaded it and will print and use them soon! Thank you for sharing!

Some criticism: the walls and everything is very necessarily thick. it's bulky. the tolerances are quiet low (the holes and the buttons need to be sanded slightly to be lose.)

also my PCB was too thick for this to work so I wasted 100 grams of filament and 7~ hours :c

I have an issue to close the upper and lower. it seems my DSO has more ticker PCB. So, vanilla stl doesn't fit each other.

Now I'm trying to print again with 3% more height of Z-Axis. I hope this solves the problem.

Thanks by the way. I really love your design. And I won't Give Up! ;-)

Love your design.
Since i wanted to use a 9V Battery with it i made a Remix, but props to you and your design! Thank you for sharing the files!

Nice work.
To help with the first layer squish compromising the lettering slightly, perhaps a tiny chamfer around the text might help.
I would very much like to see the addition of 2 features from the DSO138 Case - chunky by Salvation76, namely the addition of a stable kickstand and combining the +,- buttons into one longer button. If the source files are made available I'll be happy to do the modifications myself.

Are you supposed to print the Case-Upper face up or face down? I printed face up and there was a lot of hard to remove support and I broke the button guides trying to remove it all.

I print face down.
Im sorry my unskilled english

The best design from all that I've seen here. Although there is a comment. It is better to screw the body parts with screws. Holes on the board can be guides.
I would like to get the source files, I could finish this body myself.

This is the best looking case that I've seen for the DSO138. Great job!

Absolutely brilliant design. I've tried other DSO cases, this is unquestionably the best! Mainly for one reason: labeling. Gotta have labeling on the switches and buttons. Very nice. Snap together rather than needing screws is convenient. Also a touch of genius on the clear printed part for the LED (just so happens I had some clear PLA kicking around).

-Need larger holes for the switches. I had to put a tiny bit on my dremel to open them up enough to pop onto the switches.
-Consider an adjustable stand to prop the back to various angles.
-Consider built-in breakable supports to be able to print upright. Since the faceplate was printed face down, the first layer of filament tends to smash and "dirty" or bleed into the nice labeling - hard to clean up.

Printing face up would be great, but would need support in the design because most slicers would be way too aggressive and add too much support, difficult to remote. It's easier to remove tabs. Maybe it's not an issue depending on the z-level settings of the printer, but I have mine set pretty low and aggressive in order to get PLA to stick.

Seems to be a very nice design! Thanks for sharing!
