Creator Pro - HBP strain relief

3D model description

I had a problem with my FFCP (2016) whereby the power connector on the HBP started to smoke and was burnt very badly. I had to replace the HBP and the cable as both were destroyed

I believe that this problem was caused by the fact that the movement of the HBP stressed the power connector slightly and over time this ovalled the socket in the housing and this is what caused the fault. There is no strain relief on this connection at all

Until now: I have created this device which fits snugly over the end of the board and takes the strain from the cabling.

It goes without saying but: use at your own risk

I am very much an enthusiastic amateur when it comes to designing. My designs tend to have two things in common

1) They serve a purpose. I like to design functional objects which have a real-world use. 3D printing for art is fine, but it's its real-world application which will take the technology forward
2) Wherever possible I design to be easy to print and try to eschew supports or complex printing; modifying the design where necessary and possible to achieve this.
