To keep track of all the versions I've designed:


Power block for larger NodeMCU - Stock cover still fits
Download: https://bit.ly/2FfwB1Y


Power block for both NodeMCU versions - Stock cover still fits
Download: https://bit.ly/2sgeyQG


Power block for Wemos without additional PCB - Stock cover still fits
Download: https://bit.ly/2TFNJkA


Slightly larger power block (bottom and top) that fits Wemos plus PCB like spigot is using

I hope, that everything fits together nicely. I prefer doing a test print before publishing a design but I have to get my printer working again first  :'(

No worries. If it doesn't fit, then I wait for another version.  8)

Done very small adjustment on the single Wemos part.

Hi everyone,

Out of curiosity has there been any further iterations to the power blocks? Trying to figure out how to modify the STL files however I seem to always end up with errors in the model that cause major issues  :P Been trying to modify the Wemos power tile a bit to essentially add slots similar to what the light tiles have on their edges to be able to clip the power tile to one of the light tiles as per the attached screenshot of @galorin 's remix and then possibly widen out the power hole a bit to more comfortably fit a MicroUSB cable so that I can use a MicroUSB breakout board inside of the power block instead of ordering the required barrel connectors etc, getting hold of the required cabling alone is a bit more costly than I would like in my country so I'm trying to put this all together out of the stuff I have on hand rather.

Hi All,

So for anyone else that may be interested, I forced myself through a bit of a Fusion360 crash course and managed to achieve what I wanted for the power block. It's far from perfect however it's good enough for my needs. Credits to LordVader for his original Wemos power bottom variant which I totally didn't steal :P and also to galorin for the panel joiners. Still need to get the code onto the Wemos and solder it all up but finally in the last leg before I can hang it up on a wall :) STL attached

Modified design


Test print and everything fits, used some 3mm M3 button screws to attach the MicroUSB breakout securely


Power block test attached to the rest of the panels using galorin's joiners. Fit is extremely tight, should probably loosen up the tolerances a bit but it works and not in the mood to reprint it haha


Link to the MicroUSB breakout board I'm using
