3D Printed Case for PowerWatcher 3

Returning to work after the New Year holidays, we were pleasantly surprised by the great news.

Robin Wainwright, Canadian EV and car audio enthusiast, designed an awesome case for PowerWatcher 3 along with the RS485 voltage module and current sensor.

So, if you’re looking to put your Power Watcher in a protective box, look no further - just print one out!

The case itself has a well-thought-out design, all the pieces are well fit together.

Boards are mounted using M3 bolts and washers, self-tapping into the plastic, do not overtighten. Lids are friction fit, so you may have to over/undersize the lid just slightly for a good fit depending on your printer.

You can find more details about the case on Thingiverse.

Here are some pictures of the case:

What if I don’t have a 3D printer?

If you don’t have that Thing that prints Things from Thingiverse (a.k.a. 3D printer), don’t worry! You can use a 3D printing service such as Treatstock, Ninja-Prototype, or Print-a-thing. This is a great way to get your case 3D printed by someone else.

What if I have an idea for functionality to improve PowerWatcher?
