Tempus Fugit Word Clock 3D Printed Case

The Tempus Fugit Word Clock 3D Printed Case is is my first attempt at a case for my Tempus Fugit Word Clock powered by a Raspberry Pi Zero.

The case was designed using AutoDesk 123D Design and is my first attempt at using this software! The final design took a few iterations as initially I made a few mistakes with my dimensions ending up with the case being too small and then I had to redesign the back of the case as I put the button holes on the wrong side! After a bit of a learning curve I found 123D Design to be fairly straight foward to use, however, I found it a bit of a pain to edit or move elements once they had been joined to another without using the undo function! This is something I find a bit easier with OpenSCAD.

This case is not suitable for use with Tempus Fugit powered by an Arduino/Genunio Nano as the power connector is in a different location. The case is designed to be wall mounted and hung on a screw.

The files can either be downloaded from Thingiverse (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1636905) or from GitHub (https://github.com/alanpullen/TF-Case).

Here are some photographs of the case:
