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.
