Re: 3D drawings?

Dale Atkin
 

The PDF drawing I uploaded is about 181k, I think. I'm sure people will want me to add stuff to it. The native SolidWorks files are about 7M zipped, the STEP file is 900k zipped.

If you'd like me to make drawings with pin-outs or features, I'd be glad to help out. Just let me know what you'd like or want to see.

Re: 3D drawings?

 

Dale,

How big of files are we talking about? If they are reasonably sized, we can put them in https://nw-digital-radio.groups.io/g/udrc/files

I've asked about a location to host the files.

Have a nice weekend!

Good enough for me. I’m in the middle of moving and I must have mis-placed it. I’ll ship a replacement board to you.

I was just told the the SMA connector has been re-positioned. I'll make the revised board, too. I'll place an order this afternoon. Sorry about any confusion.

Thanks.

I only got 30 minutes to work on this at lunch. I hope to finish it tomorrow. Here's a rendering of my progress. The SMA boss is too large and needs to be trimmed. Details, details... :)

Dale,
Could you post the native SolidWorks file?  I'm a SW 2019 user and would love to have your model for layouts and modeling for future projects.
I notice you are in SE Michigan. Do you know Dean Kerste? He's the SolidWorks User Group Leader there in that part of the state. Great guy. Look up his user group and make some meetings, you won't be disappointed!  Coincidentally, I'm the Fort Worth SolidWorks User Group Leader.

What format would want the 3D models in? I use SolidWorks and could output it as IGES, STEP, or native SWX. Of course, I would need permission of Northwest Digital to create the models. It wouldn't take me that long to backward engineer my HAT.

Re: Compact gps antenna and c4labs case mod

Don--AE4DW <dwinflorida@...>
 

I have a couple of those compact gps antennas, and while I cringed at the price initially, the performance is worth every penny.

I've yet to find any chinese or similar knock-offs, so Symmetry appears to be the one and only source for them.
