Pico pin label cap

When your using the Pico on a breadboard you find that the labeling on the bottom isn't one of the best design ideas. So after plugging in some wires in the wrong holes (the Pico did survive), I came up with the idea of a label cap with printed on top one of the 4 pin configurations of the Pico. 

So I used Tinkercad to design model which would fit on top of the Pico, having room for the Pins for a nice fit.

And used InkScape to draw the stickers which you can place on top of the label cap.

Fired up my 3D printer and the laser printer and made the first prototype of the label cap. 

The bottom view of the cap. A little rough on the edges this proto type but it works.

It has a nice fit and won't drop off when you are using male header strips on the pico.

Have to say, I'm happy with the result. So I printed 3 more and made a serie of 4 Pico pin label caps.

I finished up the designs STL and the SVG file, and zipped them in a zipfile you can download through this Link (containing STL, SVG and PDF).

Enjoy,
