3D print, case, ethernet, gigabit, Skunk -

Finally! After multiple requests and much waiting, the Skunk is now available in three different colors. For all of you who don't own a 3D printer but still want to have your Skunk in a specific color, you can now get yours in Emerald, Amethyst or classic Kiwi.    Look for the drop-down color selector when visiting the Skunk product page. If you feel some additional specific colors should be made available, feel free to contact us or leave a comment below! These are all printed using PLA from Fillamentum. So what are you waiting for? Go get yours today in...

3D print, case, enclosure, ethernet, gigabit, network, Skunk -

Are you growing tired of the "classic" look of the Skunk's basic enclosure? Do you wish there was a funkier alternative? I wanted to experiment with other designs for this case. After some playing around, I came up with two alternatives which, at least to me, provide some nice change of outfit for the Skunk. Please note: only the standard green case is shipped with the Skunk for now. The cases presented here are simply experiments that I encourage anyone with a 3D printer to try out for themselves. The bottom part of the case has not actually changed -...

3D print, azban, case, enclosure, usb -

I've been keeping my Azban in my wallet for over a year now. I must say I haven't been particularly careful with it - I just keep it in a small plastic ziploc bag in this pocket: However, it's held up fine so far - it still works perfectly and doesn't show any sign of damage. These are designed to withstand a bit of abuse. Regardless, I do know many are in fact concerned about carrying that raw PCB around. To be fully honest, I must also admit that the form factor can make it harder to insert/remove in certain...

3D print, case, enclosure, ethernet, netsplit, sniff -

Is your Netsplit tearing up the pockets of your delicate suits while on assignment? Well, you are not alone! I must admit I have been experiencing the same issue myself. This prompted me to design a small cover for the back of the Netsplit - just enough to protect the exposed pins (or rather, protect your clothes from them). After a bit of playing around in Fusion 360, I had exactly what I wanted. I started from the actual PCB outline layer, which I exported as DXF - a format which can be easily imported in Fusion. Printing the result on...

3D print, case, enclosure, Skunk -

The Skunk is a really cool device to carry around. It doesn't take too much space yet serves up some pretty cool features when it comes to Ethernet links. Those of us who like to always have a Skunk ready in our toolbag must therefore protect its board from being damaged. While some like to simply have it in a small anti-static pouch, keeping the size to a minimum, others (including myself) would rather have it enclosed in a nice rigid case.   The Skunk User Guide therefore includes STL files for printing such an enclosure. I recently started feeling like...
