MakerBot Print is our newest print-prepration software, which supports native CAD files and STL assemblies,
allows you to interact with all your printers via the Cloud, and many other exciting new features.
This is a housing for the project from the German Make magazine. The soldering station is called "Maiskolben". This case fits the white PCB. The fume extractor is powered from the station via a 12V cable. I installed a switch and an led for that. For the soldering iron I use a 12mm aluminum tube I found at the local hardware store.
Everything can be printed without support. You have to turn the case so that the front lies flat to the print bed.
I added magnets to the fume extractor and the soldering station. They sit together with my also magnetic third hand on a piece of metal.
Remember to come back and post what you've printed as Make.
It's good for the designer and the community (that means you)!
