Need a case for your Nautilus?
The Nautilus is a dual voltage USB UART - a nice little tool to have whenever you need to pop a shell on some target electronics board, be it a router, embedded Linux system or some microcontroller-based device. Twitter user Rémy GILLET (@remyglt) has taken the time to design a beautiful 3D printed case, which he was then kind enough to share with everyone. The results look very nice, below is a close-up of the orange version printed by @remyglt himself. I quickly printed mine in some glow-in-the-dark PLA, but I must say I still prefer the orange version from Rémy. This is what...
Alternative case designs for the 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 -...
A keychain case for the Azban
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...
A clip-on cover for the Netsplit
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...
Skunk now includes a plastic case!
Recently I mentioned having worked on an updated version of the Skunk's 3D-printed case. After some thinking about it, I decided it would be better to actually include a print of the case with the Skunk itself. Why the change? Many of you don't own or have access to a 3D printer, and I started to feel it was unfair to some to only provide the STL files for printing yourself. 3D-printing details I tried a few filaments to find something that would look nice, print reliably and require no post-processing. Fillamentum's Crystal Clear Kiwi Green emerged as the...
