Any chance you can throw in the STL for the knob?

The knob is from DeltaPanel by scottmayson http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:30330


Thanks - very handy.
I have since discovered that My LCD has a different backing board and doesn't fit this case.
May have to design something myself.

Good luck, and have fun! You can try using my SCAD as a starting point if the form factor is what you want. There's certainly no shortage of enclosure designs on here and Youmagine if you're looking for something to suit your personal style.

I have to learn this SCAD thing. I have so many skills to keep up to date, I have yet to look at it.
but that certainly looks like an option.
In reality all I'd need to do is to throw it into inventor and do a press-pull and extend it a little.

Thanks for the source code. I was able to easily modify the OPENSCAD file for the base so I could add a T-slot M5 screw tabs, making it possible to attach it to the top horizontal misumi extrusion on my mendelmax 1.5. Bonus, the added slant to the original design means that the display ends up almost vertical instead of slanted at the angle of the frame.

Great mod. Please post your "make" with a photo so we can see the concept in action!

Hey, I made this, and it works great, however, I'm wondering how you connected this to your printer? It's hard to operate this box with 1 hand because it's not fixed to anything. For example, when inserting an SD-card.

I can easily draw something myself, however, I'm curious to know how you solved that, or didn't solve at all ;)

I've never affixed it to the printer. But I've given that some thought, and how to make it printable. Rather than try to include it in the design, I'd suggest adding some holes to the bottom and/or back, and then come up with a bracket design for your printer that you can screw it onto.
