Snap-on cover for 40mm Apple Watch for protection during activity.
I wanted a part to protect my Apple Watch from scratches and damage during rock climbing, but so I could continue to keep it on my wrist to measure my activity. This design doesn’t allow access to the touch screen or button, but allows you to press and spin the digital crown. It also still allows the watch to measure your heart-rate and movement.
The part should snap on and off your watch pretty easily. It should fit snugly with no wiggling or rattling.
I’ve included the Fusion360 files in case you want to make modifications. Since I imported a mesh and converted it into a BRep to be able to make modifications, your Fusion360 might bog down a lot, mine did. Be patient and intentional about what changes you make and you should be ok.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
