3D Printed Case

Ted Morin, lead developer of Plover, designed some cases to be 3D printed for a stenomod, and I have succeeded in doing that! Here's what it looks like. Find the design at  if you'd like to try making your own.

Stenomod with 3D printed case
It took about 5 hours, and this is the first time the print wasn't ruined by having the tape lift around the edges. I'm not sure what the difference was, maybe temperature of the room? Anyway, I'm not sure I can rely on the process yet, so I'm not offering them for sale, not yet. Maybe when I feel more confident that I can repeat the process.

As I hope you can see I've put an extra rubber foot on the inside edge so they tent just a little bit. That's part of the point of the getting them off the wood deck, being be able to adjust their position more flexibly.

If you'd rather have 3D printed cases like this than the wooden deck I've been offering, let me know in the comments. I'll keep working on it.

I know I said that I'd post some pictures of the process of making the wood decks, but I just haven't gotten around to it and I think it's time to admit that I'm not going to any time soon. So don't hold your breath waiting, please. Note to self to stop promising future postings.
