Luminardo: Designing Enclosure

The idea of making enclosure fully out of acrylic panels was abandoned due to ‘squarish’ look of the final product. We really wanted to create something a little bit more stylish and this is why the most obvious choice was 3D printing. That way it was possible to make rounded corners and streamline shape. However, […]

A Luminardo Board Revamp: Revision 2.1

This is a second spin of Luminardo boards with the focus on elimination minor mistakes found in the revision 1.0. A motion sensor is fully integrated with the PCB this is why the board has an inflow on top of its outline. Also an obsolete inductor is replaced with the one of a similar footprint […]

A 16S8D VFD Panel Revamp: Revision 2.0

This is a deep redesign of MVFD 16S8D Panel Rev.1.0 project which fixes minor and major issues and finally solves the fundamental problem of some parts becoming obsolete. Let’s reiterate the reasons which were the main driving forces of the project to come into existence:

– Single power source (+5V) which makes it possible to […]

The BlueButton – Envisaging Enclosure

Continuing the development cycle of the BlueButton today we are going to create an enclosure prototype which potentially could be 3D printed. The goal would be to fit PCBA into a plastic box comprising of three parts: a top shell, a bottom shell and a round button. All 3D bodies will be created by extrusion […]

MVFD Panel in 3D

Building a 3D model from PCB design files can bring your project to a totally new level. It comes at a price as it requires extra design time but being properly done it saves a lot of effort and money in the future as it minimises risks by helping to capture issues on early stages […]
