3D Printed Case
After building a number of plywood enclosures, I decided to design a case that could be 3D-printed out of plastic.
It's available here, along with the STL file if you wish
to print it yourself. Or you can have a look at the FreeCAD design file.
Here are the printed parts I received from Shapeways:
The case is designed to be assembled without tools. Both the camera strap and bottom lid slide into matching slots:
The servo is held in place by 8 posts and a clip. The exit hole fixes the servo's output shaft to ensure proper alignment of the drive gears:
The circuit board is also aligned and held in place by posts. Foam packing keeps things from moving around. A shim of cardstock prevents the foam from pressing on the gyro chip. It's a tight fit:
