Bender is a 3D printable case for the Heltec V3 LoRA Meshtastic powered Radio node. It features a bay for an 18650 battery holder and the ability to add a full size SMA connector so a variety of antenna's can be used. It also includes a 3D printable housing for the antenna included with the Heltec V3 that converts it into a hinged, hard bodied antenna (you can see this in the pictures of the black and white housing)

There are two front covers included, the standard which features the two push buttons for the Heltec controls and a second which includes a convenient On/Off switch.

Included in the download are the following:

  • Two front cover options - with switch and without
  • Two body options - top mounted antenna and side mounted
  • Rear Batter Cover
  • Antenna housing for the Heltec antenna
  • SMA Hex wrench
  • Release notes with details on print settings and bill of materials for the required hardware
Assembly requires no screws or glue with everything clipping together securely. You can see a video demonstrating Bender on YouTube here (I am not a YouTuber and waffle, apologies!) and a full assembly video will be available soon (its pretty self explanatory!)


The case prints easily in under 6 hours and requires only 50g of filament. The only hardware required (other than the Heltec and included battery cable) is the 18650 battery, battery holder and SMA cable (details provided with files) If you are in the UK you will soon be able to purchase a hardware kit that includes all of these components direct from our site.

This product is a digital download and requires a 3D printer to print. You will receive a link to download the 3D printable files within minutes of purchase.

If you do not have a 3D printer you can purchase a Bender case with all hardware (minus the Heltec) from our site HERE.
