Arduino Bumper by Chu Jul 4, 2012

Description

Inspired by Arduino design and the iPhone Bumper, I present to you the Arduino Bumper!

By installing this minimalist case, it allows the Arduino to be placed onto a flat conductive surface without shorting it out.

The bumper press fits onto the Arduino Uno and Leonardo. Recessed grooves located under where the Arduino pins sit allow the back of the board to sit flat in the bumper.

Update: Arduino Bumper 0006 has mounting holes.

Wow this is a fast accurate print. A+

Hi everyone, I'm new to 3D printing, but I'm having trouble with this print. We are using Replicator 2, and it seems to read the file and try to print, but it does not dispense any filament. I am able to print other models, does anyone have any ideas?

Perfect fit, very nice

Instructions

On an Ultimaker, this print took around 30mins when printed with PrintRun. I used Slic3r to generate Gcode with the following settings:
- 0.1mm thickness layers
- 6 solid layers on top and bottom
- 0% density (hollow)
- 2 perimeters/walls
- 0.4mm nozzle

When printed at these settings, the walls of the bumper are two solidly fused perimeters. Varying results may occur with different size nozzles. Please let me know if there are problems.

Note: The Arduino Leonardo might have a tighter fit because they do not have a clean cut on the top and bottom edges. I believe mine was scored and separated from a larger sheet when it was manufactured.

Autodesk Inventor file included.

nice, simple design, good for beginners like me!

Excellent :)
I would have two requests: one version with a solid bottom plate to fully isolate the board, and the same quality case for the Sparkfun FTDI USB connector? :D
Very good work!

Thank you for including the Inventor file. It makes incorporating it into my designs significantly easier!

Printed an 0005 (as my first-ever print!) and it works like a charm. Thanks!

Works great with the Duemilanove!

Can someone please make a derivation for the Mega?

Chu on Sep 11, 2012 said:

I started working on the Mega version. It'll be uploaded soon.

Seriously awesome! While printing i thought it's never going to work, but it fits like a glove :D Thanks for the design!

:) Perfect fit! Thanks!

eric1000 on Jul 12, 2012 said:

does it work with the duemilanove too?

Chu on Jul 12, 2012 said:

I think it fits the Duemilanove, but I don't have one to test. The only thing I would worry about is if the bottom pins hit the bumper (which I don't think they will). Please let me know if it works! Thanks!

Do you mind if I take this and modify it to fit my Arduino MEGA?

Chu on Jul 12, 2012 said:

I don't mind at all. Please make one and post it! :)
