I’m just getting to look into this, and am looking for two cases for my new xEM V2’s.
I don’t have access to a 3d printer, and don’t even know what exactly is needed (not sure what a coil cover plate is, or if I need that with the case? dd Wait, is the coil the antenna? Can it be mounted remotely and not with the Board?
I’m in Tucson, AZ, and would like to get a couple! I’m going to use the xEM in a car for a door opener. And would like it covered.
Also you probably shouldn’t extended it like I did, maybe you could use shielded cable, but it’s probably going to mess with the antenna tuning
I remember and understand enough to realize, that I avoid it at all cost and try to not make it worse if I can help it
My printer is currently down for some stupid reasons, but give me a couple days and I’ll see what it would look like to print a few
It’s worth noting, you don’t “need” one strictly speaking, both of the ones I use inside my safe are just stuck to the interior of the doors,
(One may or may not be held in place with hammered in push pins)
the smaller one I was far less of a savage about, I 3D printed some little standoffs with holes sized for the screws, then I attached the stand offs to the board, then I put glue on the standoffs and stuck it where I wanted it
… I should maybe 3D print a bed plate or 2 of those and send them to @Amal to add into the kits
By remotely I just meant not directly attached to the board. The diagram I saw showed the part with the antenna being directly bolted to the case for the board it looked like.
I don’t think I’d need to extend it, I can mount it all close to where I want it.
I think I need one, because I’ll be mounting it in a vehicle, to a steel panel, and wouldn’t want it to come loose and short or anything. So I think for safety it’d be a good idea.
I’ll stand by and see if your printer comes up. I appreciate that!
I searched and found some 3D printers on craigslist, but would rather support this community if possible. You guys are all awesome.
Lemme take a look and see what it looks like to make
not doing that, at this point its confirmed to effect probably all of them… I’m not going to pass out the exploit
can you accept the color orange?
if so I can print it in a higher temperature PETG with what I already have setup and tuned for
thinking 5$ each plus shipping
looks like my PETG has been saturated with moisture and is printing like garbage
my dehydrator is already packed… so I’m probably not able to print what you need for 2-4 weeks until I finish moving…
hasn’t even been that humid lately and I store my inactive spools in a desiccant chamber, and my active spool in a sealed box… idk
it might have just been the first wrap or what was in the reverse bowden… the snap crackle pop has died down
