I have been working on a little adjustment to my Cougar MFD’s, earlier this year I got my hands on 2 small displays to put behind the MFD’s and now that my 3D printer is on the way I figured it would be a good time to get started on combining all the components!
With the help of Fusion 360 and a bit of caliper work I got this:
2 small white brackets to keep the display in place that fit on the existing bottom bracket connection of the MFD’s with the original bolt. On the top a beefy bracket to firmly keep the display in place and it has 2 stand-off that allow me to attach the original aft bracket that is used to regulate angle. The base is perfect since it’s already quite heavy and has a nice anti-slip surface.
A secondary goal was to waste as little of the original design as possible and I think that bit succeeded quite well. The top bracket does need one more bracket that fixates the MFD to the bracket.
Hopefully this is useful for anyone else out there, I am using two of these:
Though they vary a bit in price and there’s a lot of choice for displays. once it’s all working I’ll post up the original files in case anyone wants to replicate the results.
