I’ve come across a few bumpers for the iPAC-2 Keyboard encoder, but I wanted an actual box. Not being able to find one, I drew my own.
Designed in two parts, the base can be printed in a different color, adding to the excitement.
To add a degree of wire relief, I used a piece of expandable weather-stripping to fill the gap, molds to the wires, and seals the box more.
This can be used with or without the shown weather-stripping
My application was for my Fix it Felix machine, so an STL of Felix is also included if you would like to include his likeness into your print. An embossed version is also downloadable for a Fix it decorated cover for single extruder printers.

Attach the weather-stripping if you have chosen that path. Secure top to base with the #4 screws and the #2 screws for the PCB to the base
This design, as well as previous designs, was done in Autodesk’s free 123D design. This is now an abandoned piece of software, that I am still very proficient in. You can download its last revision for Windows (2.2.14) here, but understand that the online cloud storage option no longer works.
The .123dx file may contain sketches, solids, or both needed to render the final STL. and is included to ease part modification for your purpose.
