    Default Case for Ron's 4 output controller

    I posted this over on another site but figured I would post here in case anyone is using one of Ron's 4 output controller. Here is a small case I made in tinkercad for the board if anyone needs one:

    I decide to go ahead and order a couple of these. I don't have a printer so i used one of the services on thingverse. I'll let you know how it turns out!

    I would have printed a couple for you but I'd bet shipping from Canada would make it unreasonable.

    What was the cost?
    I'd like to get one of these to show at Lights Up Ohio mini, but Im in the middle of moving and my printers are in boxes.

    I ordered from NinjaPrototypes via the link on thingverse. The total for 2 w/shipping was $16.72. One would have been $11.34.

    I think it's a bit pricey for what it is but I don't have a printer and I'm willing to spend for convenience. If I bought a 3d printer in order to print it then it would have cost hundreds.

    Besides, I haven't tried this before so why not....

    I am surprised no one offered to print a few from the forum....

    I just downloaded the stl file for these today and will try printing up one tomorrow. I don't have one of Ron's controllers to check it with but shouldn't be a problem.

    I received my 3D prints of your case yesterday. They came exactly 2 weeks from the date I ordered. I was surprised to see they were shipped from China.

    The prints are really good and the case fits great. I thought it was a little tight at first but after examining it, I think it's just right. This a much better way or securing the controller and I don't have to be so careful when plugging in data cables.
