Firefly Ice Blue Core Parts

The Firefly Ice Blue core enclosure design files are now available:

GitHub: Firefly Ice Mechanical

The Firefly Ice Blue core enclosure design has 4 elements:

  • plastic “back” in black PC
  • plastic “shell” in colored PC
  • plastic “spacer” in black PC
  • plastic “top” in clear PC

The spacer and top are co-molded into a single piece, so there are only 3 parts for final assembly.  The final assembly process is very simple:

  1. Press the top/spacer into the shell.
  2. Bond the top/spacer to the shell with a solvent applied to the inner seam.
  3. Place the electronic assembly onto the mounting posts.
  4. Snap the back piece on.

The shell will come in green, pink, blue, and black :

Colors

The core parts are all generated by a Python script run inside Rhino 3D.  That makes it easy to tweak the design.
