3D Printed Console Done

The console finished.  I printed it at the OPTIMAL setting on my printer, which is a 0.15mm (150micron) layer height.  Everything turned out pretty well except for the antenna.  I think that's a function of the diameter being so small.  My printer has a 0.4mm extrusion nozzle.  Even though it can print layers as thin as 0.05mm, every strip of plastic it lays down is 0.4mm wide.  That means super thin things sometimes get a little wonky.

It's also a little small.  I'm going to scale it up a bit and see if it works better.
