I Am Designing A Belt Clip And Holder For My 2B Estim Control Box
If you enjoy stimming while walking around then this may be of interest to you
The 2B E-stim Control Box is an absolutely fantastic piece of equipment, and lots of people enjoy stimming while being mobile.
I decided to design my own 3D printable belt clip and holder for my 2B Control Box.
From the outset I decided on the following criteria:
- It must be capable of holding the 2B either the right way up or upside down.
- All sockets must be accessible.
- You must be able to change the battery without removing the control box from the holder.
- All controls must be accessible but also protected from accidental use when wearing it.
- A method to control cables to keep things neat and tidy.
- The belt clip must be able to be removed so if it ever breaks it can be replaced.
- All outer edges must have a nice radius to prevent snagging on things.
Here is my design so far. I am waiting on some PLA arriving before I can print out a prototype. Once I have done so and then tweaked the model if it needs tweaking I will make the files available for downloading.
The 2B cradle and belt clip will allow for easy mobile stimming
This means that you can get one made for yourself. I can also 3D print them for anyone, but this is a long print job.
This image shows the pieces that are individually printed and then snapped together
Update: 8/5/19 - Added another cable retention and tidying option, an eyelet for use with standard cable ties.

Update: 29/9/19 - I have made the STL files for this project available.
You can download the STL files for this project here. If you find them useful then please consider making a donation to me for them to help me grow my site.

Stoked with this new series, fantastic information and really one-of-a-kind!
Came here for quick 3d printing suggestion: Chamfers print much better than fillets as they're limited to a 45* overhang. It'll probably end up looking nicer and work better for preventing snags on stray threads. If you use a solvent to clean up (i.e. PLA and acetone), the chamfers end up especially soft.

Hi I was wondering if it is possible to get the stl file at all?
This is exactly what I was after for my unit to protect while moving around.
