3D Printed case for my CF-IDE card

Merging 2 of my hobbies!! ;-)

A while ago, I got a tomthul IDE card for my Amiga 1000.
Basically, it plugged into the side of my A1000 and it had a dual CF/IDE adapter with 2 CF cards.
Worked great (I use kickwork to boot from 1 floppy (floppy image now with a Gotek) that then loads the driver and transfers control to the CF card to boot).

But it was just a card sticking out of the side of my A1000.

I also not too long ago got a 3D printer (Monoprice Select Mini 3D) so I thought I'd try to work on a case for it..

Came up with this:



I think it came out pretty nice, as I have less than 0 ability with design. (Well, almost..)

Yeah it looks great. Does it fit inside the A1000? I guess it doesn't. Can you please take a picture while plugged in?

So much nicer than a bare card.

I guess with a MicroSD sized card, the expansion wouldn't be much larger than the edge connector to attach it with...

You putting the 3D model files out or keeping them, as a matter of interest?

I could put them out. Not opposed to it, but I'm not sure how many other people would be interested...
It's a pretty small number of people, I think, who have tomthul's board...

Anyone who wants the STLs can have em..
They are just press fit right now, which seems to be working, but I've been wondering if I should add screw holes or something better..

(I also have a crazy possible long term plan to move the LCD and buttons for my Gotek to this case somewhere, but not sure on that one.. ;-)

Also note: I believe Tom cut that card edge connector by hand, so it might not fit exactly for yours.
You can do as I do when designing..
1: Measure twice before you design it!!..
2: Get two different numbers..
3: Keep measuring until you get the same number twice.
4: Design and print.
5: Find out how far off it is, adjust and print again.
6: Repeat step 5 as necessary..
:-)

Fair point. Kind of defeats the object of a public release, if the printed object isn't always going to fit.

Nice list, I'll try to implement it always, before a release.
