Best way to mount OLED screen in Gotek case?

Post by sofakng »

Does anybody know the best way to mount the optional OLED screen in the Gotek case?

For example, are there any 3D printable brackets? What's the best/cleanest method?

Did mine with a few small dots of hot melt glue.

Totally invisible from the outside, and still pretty easy to remove if needed.

I did trim the "window" in the GoTek case to allow the full display to be seen, and had to relieve some of the supports near it and on the cover, but didn't need much, and the cover, iirc, still holds it forward as well.

It really is amazing how well just 4 dots of hot melt at the corners hold the display - I just put it in place, and very gently apply just a dab at the corners.

(I'd post photos, but the GoTeks are deem inside equipment at the moment . . . )

Thanks for the information!

I've looked around and even printed some 3D mounting brackets but nothing really worked. I ended up cutting the hole to fit the entire screen (0.91") and then printed this nice bezel and I think it looks great:

However, I did need to use hot glue to secure the screen to the case.
