A cover for the pocket size VNA (NanoVNA).
Its a great little VNA but the sides are exposed and need protection.
I drew this up in Fusion 360 and with a few trials and redraw I got something that fits.
The front cover is glued to the front panel. The back cover is screws on.
The original screws are replaced with counter sunk screws.
On the side both sides of the power switch there are two holes for the status lights. The light tube STL is printed in clear plastic and glued into these holes.
I have been experimenting with PLAflex, TPU would work well.
Use the NanoVNA flex cover STL to make the flexible cover.
Have another version of the top cover with a protection bump to protect the function dial and a attachment point for a lanyard. Lanyard handy if your climbing a tower ;)
A version with just the protection bump.
I have a orange print I did with PETG, my first print with this type of filament. Its quite strong and well defined.
I have the origin Fusion file available for down load, this is due to may request for sharing. Please give me credit for the original design. https://a360.co/2ZdIE9u
There are two suppliers of these kits I have found out, the one I have that is black case this has brass bolts and nuts. The front nuts are soldered to the from cover. The white version has plastic bolts and nuts, the plastic bolts protrude out from the top cover. My design is for the black case. If you change the top nuts to brass and solder them in my case will fit. Or drill out where the bolts fit. A solution is I design another case with room for these bolts.
What ever you fancy
