Your task is to design a custom enclosure for your flash drive which you will then build using the 3-d printer. To ensure that you will be able to use your drive in a standard USB slot, you should leave at least 1/2" of the connector exposed, but the remainder of the design space is yours to explore. As a starting point, an assembly of the connector and the internal structure of the drive can be found here.
Design Requirements - your enclosure must:
When you are ready to have your parts printed, you'll need to separately process each file through Catalyst. Remember to:
We strongly encourage you to submit your CMB files early in order to meet the project deadline.
To save time on the printer, we will batch your parts together with submissions from other students. When your parts are finished, they will be left in a bin in Towne 205.
