Hi everyone - did anyone ever get a case made for this Trump Card clone? I've finished putting my life back together now (new home, new town, new job) and I'm keen to pick up where I left off :-)

Ha ha - thanks for the welcome back, I never got a notification so sorry I didn't acknowledge you, I wasn't being rude!


I guess that an STL file never materialised. Anyone else still interested in this? I'd really REALLY like to protect mine, I came close over Xmas with some thick black modelling card, a scapel and some glue, but in the end I think it should still be a black plastic lump.... perfect for 3d printing!

Anyone here ever made an STL file? I'm presuming it's a case of getting dimensions, producing something in a CAD package (luckily the Trump card is a fairly simple shape) and then doing an annoying number of test runs until you have something that fits?

(He says, as if that's all a trivial thing to do)

Hehehe! Before Xmas, Aldi or Lidi had a reasonably priced 3d printer, it looked good!

Aldi: https://www.aldi.co.uk/balco-3d-printer ... 1187467900

It sold out before it went on sale! It is a Balco printer, which is itself a clone of the Wanhao i3 version 2.1 it seems. Mini review here: https://forums.overclockers.com.au/thre ... w.1203258/.

Cheers,
Norm.

Hi,

I was going do an STL file from the original Trump card cover. But got distracted by other QL projects.

I maybe get the file done soon.

I even bought a DaVinici Jr 3D printer, second hand form somone local to me. But I have not had time to use the Printer. It sits unusex in storage.

If anyone fancies making me an offer for the DaVinci Jr. Send me a PM.

I can deliver for the cost Diesel in Cheshire, Midlands.

Shipping outside UK will be very expensive.

The stepper motors inside it are probably worth more than the printer is worth whole ;)
