Epic build from Steve Prior up on Thingiverse.

I bought a ESP8266 Huzzah Feather and 3.5″ LCD Featherwing from Adafruit and wanted a table top case to put them in. I designed the case just big enough so that the displayable area of the LCD is centered in the bezel. The top and bottom are also symmetrical so I can use the case with the cord on either the left or right and adjust the screen rotation in software.

This is a challenging print, I printed it with the back on the bed and the bezel face up and 0.1mm layer height is needed given the gentle slope of the bezel and to realize usable screw threads in the 8 holes. Because of the 0.1mm layer height I had to add an extra layer gap between the top of the support and the bottom of the model or else the support couldn’t be removed cleanly. But I’m thrilled with the result.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
