Re: LeafDD - Dash Display for Leaf

Does anyone happen to have a copy of the 3D file for the enclosure?

I'd like to print a new one, but hoping to avoid having to start from scratch.

Did you ask the designer (GregH)? I know he had a link to it way back when.

I probably have the CAD for the LeafDD enclosure somewhere..

Btw, just dropping off my Leaf after 3.5 years (5.5 years total Leaf experience) and no longer have a need for my (somewhat beat up, but functional) LeafDD. If you live in Orange County, CA and would like to pick it up, it's yours for free! Not willing to ship it.

Either way, email me at dashdisplay at gmail.

Fwiw, 46272 miles in 42 months. 45.1Ah, just under 200 gids on a full charge. Just picked up a new Volt Premier with all the bells and whistles (adaptive cruise control). The Volt btw also has about 200 gids (14kWh) worth of juice.

New to the Leaf/EV world, but have been amazed at the "pioneering" work done by you and many others that resulted in major advances for current Leaf owners enjoy - including Turbo's LeafSpy, but certainly not limited to such - especially for us DIY'ers.

THANKS

Yes, just to add my voice here:

Greg, I got a handy LeafDD from you a few years ago and while I had my Leaf it served me well. Then I donated it to the Tucson EV Assocation (TEVA) and so it (and a few other gauges) have helped gather data. A bit of the data ended up here I guess (certainly mine did, as judged by a couple of different pieces of equipment, including yours) and then Tom Saxton and PIA did an excellent job of collecting and organizing and making some sense of the data:

https://survey.pluginamerica.org/leaf/v ... r=location

[one can see the pattern of lost bars in the Arizona vehicles, in part thanks to Greg and others.]

I think the think I liked about the LeafDD was it was really just plug-and-play, and so this was helpful for me (not very technology savvy) and also helpful I think to some other members of TEVA, as it required no setup for them to see how their batteries were doing.

So, my main point is just to let Greg know that his device served well and we here in Arizona appreciate it.

I have used the LeafDD for several years and think of it as just part of the car that should have been designed in by Nissan. It is absolutely indispensable, especially now that my Leaf has lost about 28% of the original capacity. Without it, I wouldn't be comfortable on some of the longer drives. Thanks for an amazing design, simple to use!

Being able to constantly view remaining Ahrs provided by the LeafDD or LeafSpy and projecting a realistic
remaining range is indispensable for a BEV. Having to rely on SOC, e.g. having an ICEV with a "shrinking fuel
tank", contributes to increased range anxiety combined with the unreliable Leaf's GOM.

I am sorry if I don't sound sympathetic but, who gives a hoot about having seriously accurate data on battery remaining... It sounds really excessive and obsessive. Actually a person that needs to know exactly how much juice is left has "range anxiety" before they press the ON button of the car... How many people with a gas car need to constantly know how many more miles the have on their gas tank... When the needle gets low, you fill it up...

Ridiculous! The LeafDD prevents range anxiety.
