5X6 Ortho NeoKey Case

by aklitman on Thu Jul 29, 2021 4:18 pm

Wow! Just received my 5X6 NeoKey Ortho boards and they are spectacular. As I wire these up, I've been musing over an enclosure. Are there any 3D Files or plans out there I can use as a basis? If any STL files exist, I can modify them to make sure the case is deep enough for a board & battery. Speaker option too? So many possibilities.

The Eagle files are posted.

Not STLs directly, but you can generate STLs from board file using Fusion 360.

Eagle is also able to "Save As" board files as STP files.

Great Reply & Thx! I watched the video. This is a cool feature. I did not know this could be done. Thx for helping my education. Now, to review my Fusion 3670 skills (I have been more of a TinkerCAD guy) and see what I can create.

You can use Fusion 360 to convert the Eagle BRD file to a TinkerCad friendly import format (STL).
