With the technical side of the project progressing well, I started 3-D printing some enclosures for the RSL10 Beacons -honestly I always find an excuse to add 3D printed parts to my projects. At this point I got creative and came up with various types of enclosures.
3D Print settings
Below the settings used in Cura:
Printer: Creality CR-10S
Material: PLA White
Infill: 20%, Gyroid
Layer height: 0.2mm
There is not a lot to say here but let's mention some features that may not be noticeable:
The front cap has tiny holes that allow the sensors inside to breathe and a place for a 2mm light pipe2mm light pipe. I designed two of them with/without 20 degree stand.
The back cap also has tiny holes that allow the sensors inside to breathe and a Wall Mount option
Now that the beacons have a place to be, the project is ready for the final wrap up.
