Not much to write. Now that the parts have arrived, I can find most of the exact models on GrabCAD, and the ones that aren’t available online are simple enough to design myself.
- R10 800l/h Aquarium Pump
- IEC320 C14
- 0.96” OLED
- KY-040 (don’t need the model for this, I just need to cut 7mm hole) — designed my own a knurled knob though.
- Toggle switch (also no model, 16mm hole)
- 1000 Watt submersible water heater (poorly designed, can’t find my exact measurement in GrabCAD, but I need to design this to align the water pump)
- Chinese scavenged AC-DC power supply 5V 2A (just need to add mounting points)
I’ve split the enclosure into 4 parts,
- bottom for mounting the pump, sensor, and water heater. Screwed on to centre. 7.5 hours print.
- Centre the main enclosure. 12 hours print.
- Top is the lid, snap on to centre. 5 hours print.
- Clamp to clamp this to a container (the water bucket), and it also clamps centre and bottom together. 2.5 hours print.
- I’ve also added 0.2mm gap so I can add a transparency plastic between bottom and centre, you know the ones we use for 3D printed face shields. This is to protect the electronics from hot water vapours.
Total: ~27 hours of print time. I’m getting Volcano hotend + 1mm nozzles.
