Summary

Enclosure for MAKE's / Adafruit's Menta Arduino board.

(see: http://www.makershed.com/Mintronics_MENTA_p/mkad43.htm & http://ladyada.net/make/menta/ )

It's a great little Arduino clone that fits in a mint tin yet still has Arduino-standard header sockets for shields.

I found the mint tin limiting though if you're adding wires & parts to your circuit, plus I have always felt a little iffy about putting prototypes in metal enclosures.

So here's a printable case for mint tin-sized circuits like the Menta. It has openings for the DC power jack and the FTDI cable.

Included is a 25mm high version and a 35mm high version. For larger or smaller sizes, it's pretty easy to stretch the case bottom to fit your size. Also you can design in some holes for pots & switches on the top.

The case top has little clasps that grab onto the small nubs on the case bottom to securely keep the case on.

Can you enable Customizer app (makerbot). The other customizer app is no good. I'd like to make it taller.

Awesome. Just what I was looking for - including the optional height for stacking. I am iffy about the metal bottom too. I line mine with felt.
Thanks for posting
