Thanks folks.. Ive been browsing thingiverse for inspiration too
I should clarify tho its Not a new toy. More of a dust catcher atm.. . bought a while back when refitting smart light switches in the house.. the depth of the new switches exceeded the depth of the existing shallow boxes mounted in the brick walls.. I could have dug them out...(hard work). but adding stand offs upto 25mm seemed a lot easier unfortunately the off the shelf options i found were VERY expensive and only 5mm deep meaning it could cost upto £30 per plate to fit!! ouch - enter the cheap 3d printer to print off a range of 5mm-25mm stand offs
tbh the design aspect of the hobby was a bit too much of a bite for me to chew comfortably at the time. . But now with isolation at home and time on my hands im looking at diving back in..
Atty stands seem like a great start .. battery boxes.. i will need to collect more batteries before i need those, but Yeah another good idea
I think however a box mod might be a tad ambitious as the pla that i can print with isnt that good when it comes to heat resistance in use.. But then again nothing ventured....
Perhaps an atty stand incorporating a small wooden clothes peg or spring? to grip the bottom 510 thread to facilitate pulling off a top cap ?? hmm
back to watching kid vids on using tinkercad i guess..
