This product case prototype highlights the excellent way 3D printing can be used to create solutions – and fast. The product designer was attending an important meeting and required a case to be designed and manufactured in under a week.
We designed the 3-part case in-house, creating a functional prototype on an FDM printer to test the design before printing the final case on our HP MJF printer.
The case was designed to hold all the product components securely in position with the main control board, Wi-Fi card and dongles all attaching to one side of the case.
A lap joint around the perimeter ensured each side fitted together snugly. The case was designed to provide the necessary venting and precise-sized holes for cable ports, with the base clips fitting neatly into position. The entire case was dyed black.
