Good day Bob, all is good here and hope it's likewise for you.Good day EP, hope all is well with you and yours.
Had a thought, ( I know I'm dangerous when that happens )
Anyways was thinking when a pen build is made the diode is soldered directly to the driver. When a spring is used on the bottom of the driver the diode/driver junction becomes a stress point. I've been applying a little dab of glue to add support.
If I remember correctly you have a 3D printer. Was wondering if you could 3D some type of spacer that would fit in between the diode and driver to absorb the stress ?
Your thoughts? :thinking:
Sure Bob, any visualizations help a ton. I might just have to get a dummy module for testing as well. Feel free to PM me!Great! All is well in my neck of the woods.
Measurements will have to wait till I get back to the house. (Planning on a couple more pen builds next time I hit the house??)
Am trying to figure out a way to solve the stress problem I've had before. After taking the battery(s) out a half dozen times the doide driver solder breaks loose, so I started using a bit the glue. Trying to to come up with a better way?
Yes I am talking about the standard 12mm module with no back half with a nano ( or similar ) driver soldered on where a spring is soldered the bottom part. Ok, when I can I'll send you some pics and maybe a drawing of what I was thinking.
