Tutorial Designing PCB Mounts #3DPrinting #Fusion360 #LayerByLayer

I’ve been designing PCB mounting plates into several project enclosures. Liz (BlitzCityDIY) suggested I’d do a Layer by Layer tutorial on the subject. I shared a CAD explosion on twitter and was asked why I used a separate mounting plate instead of building them into the case itself. This got me thinking about some of the benefits of this design method.

  • Modularity. Don’t have to reprint the whole case for minor changes and updates.
  • Can adjust position of components and only reprint PCB mount.
  • Can use additional hardware standoffs, screws and hex nuts to secure PCBs.
  • Can hold various PCBs together in a single mount.
  • PCB Mount takes ~20 minutes to print verses several hours for half of an enclosure.
  • Elevates the PCB and allows clearance for wiring and spacing for positioning.

In this tutorial we’ll take a look at using PCB mounting plates for enclosure designs. We’ll dive into four projects and pull out how to use PCB mounts and why they’re helpful. Check out the links to the learn guides of the projects featured in this video. Thanks for watching!

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
