I am away for my job and did really have time designing again the support. I have modified the last print with an exacto knife and now i know how to do the trick. Toorrow i’m back home and i’ll publish an updated version.shesaysidontlisten wrote: ↑Sun Oct 22, 2017 1:57 pmYaYa, did you ever finish with your refitting of the battery bay? Your design is the reason I bought Pogo pins and the same batteries. I haven't started grinding Down the Walls of the battery compartment yet, so if you have any measurements or 3D printed parts that make things work better, please post them!YaYa wrote: ↑Wed Oct 18, 2017 12:49 pmI have no problem to hold the battery. I am encountering some issues to maintain a good contact between the pogo pins and the battery.
I’m trying another update of my pogo pin holder.
To tell you shortly, i have shaved some small bits to allow the part to sit 1 mm down. Then i reversed the pogo upside down (and reversed also the cables to respect polarity) i fed up the rear of the 3D part with VHB to stick it upside down for testing purposes.
This manipulation allows me to have the pins in the good angle so they can bend without deformation when the battery is going down.
Now that i know this way is better, i’m going to rework the model to add a step on the rear (this will prevent me from filling with 3mm VHB lol) and i will add a wall on the rear.
Why a wall ? because the design and the followed path is good but with many in and outs, the pogo pins slightly goes back in the case and then i have some connection lost when playing.
I really want to keep the grinding of the case very tight because i don’t want the battery to move.
I’ll deal with the 3D model this weekend and post it here.
I’m for now away on a trip for my job so i’m a bit lazy and just want to play
Edit: I also wanted to thank you for all the optimization stuff! Once I have a functional GBZ I'm going through every one of those settings.
Thank you for your interest
