I received my stuning uConsole, and I love it too much to leave it unprotected!
So I created a basic but strong pla cover for it.
I added a new version of the antenna, which drastically improve the Wi-Fi connection.
This new design allows the antenna to be clipped in two different position :
- Plated against the chassis (more compact but less range)
- Deployed (better reception more bulky)
The V2 ( uCo-COUV-01-V2-5.STL) can be clip-on on the back of the uConsole, using the stand as a support.
The thingiverse link:
If it has to clamp on that might mean paint getting rubbed off over time, just fyi.
Yes, I put a gap of 1mm to avoid that. The paint is quite fragile indeed! The pads under cover are larges to avoid a single point of pressure on the uConsole.
I bet we could find some bag that would fit snug instead?
In fact, I have a perfect bag for my U. The only problem is that it is not rigid, hence the usefulness in my case of a shell.
I’m too afraid to break the screen!
That is the bag I uses:
DIMENSIONS: H: 21 cm L: 16 cm P: 5.50 cm
I’ve carried my DevTerm in a similar bag - it offers more protection - puts a cloth layer between your unit and the real world…
scratches give it character
If you want something more compact and handy just to protect the screen, I made a flippy cover that stay attached to it:
Someone needs to attach a second screen to it
Anyone ever find a right size clear screen protector, or a good cut to size one? That’d be all I really need.
In my case, no, but I know the existence of resizable screen protector, in 5, 6, 7 or more inch diagonals. There fit perfectly for lot of specials devices.
Thanks Kirou, have you posted your STL files yet?
This is pretty much exactly what I was looking for!
Files are - finally- added! By thingiverse.
