Wouxun KG-UV3D GPS Interface: PCB Component Envelopes

This doodle just emerged from the heap:

TT3 and Interface PCB keepout dimensions

It gives the envelope dimensions for the two PCBs in the quasi-extruded GPS interface case:

HT-GPS Case - Trial fit - rear view

The overall idea was to subtract the envelopes from the interior of the solid case and print the shell:

Surprisingly, after minimal cleanout, the PCBs pretty much just slid into place and the setscrews locked them down.

Now I can throw out that scrap of paper…

The OpenSCAD source has the gory details; the actual dimensions don’t quite match the doodle, but that’s in the nature of fine tuning.
