Actuator port coverings

Post by jwhitman » Thu Jun 04, 2020 3:48 pm

When using the X-series modules, I try to be careful to avoid collisions with the plugs, but occasionally, they happen accidentally. I know Hebi offers beautiful 3D printed parts that cover the through-bore of the modules, but I haven't seen any that cover the plug area. I am working on a part that adds material between and around the plugs and covers the area around the plugs, to reinforce them against minor collisions, and act as a bit of strain relief if the cables get tugged.
Has anyone designed such a part and might share that design so we can compare?
Here's a rough version I'm working on, where the prototype almost fits but not quite yet. When I get it working nicely I'll upload the CAD as well.

And here is another that I've seen online but don't have the drawings.
