We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
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.
On an Ultimaker, this print took around 30mins when printed with PrintRun. I used Slic3r to generate Gcode with the following settings:
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.

So what's this mean?
We're sure Chu would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
To post a Make simply visit this Thing again and click I Made One to start uploading your photo. You can also download the Thingiverse Mobile app (available via Google Play and Apple App Store) to take a photo and upload your Make right from the app!
