Perforated Arduino Enclosure

Perforated Arduino Enclosure by AMS3000 Oct 14, 2012

Description

Here is an enclosure for an Arduino Uno that I designed in Tinkercad. I have printed it, and it works pretty well, although I really want to rearrange or redo the holes so that they line up neatly with the header pins. It does make a nifty little home for an Arduino, if you have yours sitting on your desk all day like I do.

This thing was made with Tinkercad.

The scale is in millimeters - what format would be useful to you? OBJ?

I imported this into SketchUp and because stl files don't have any scale, SketchUp made it 13 feet long.  Can you provide one of the actual dimensions so I can scale it properly in SketchUp.
 

Hi Wapata! 

You are totally right on that one. It is really just my Arduino's home while I am not doing anything with it. This way it sits nice and safe on my desk. I am working on a new version that will be much more flexible, allowing for stacking up as many or as few shields as required. I am almost there, just working out a few more details! Stay tuned!

Thanks,

A

Instructions

Print both halves and join them. Let me know if you have problems. Feel free to go on Tinkercad and modify your own version of it - Mark it as a derivative, I would love to see it :)

FYI - this is based off this version which I designed as well: tinkercad.com/things/aeeotgSaQ1x-shapely-arduino-enclosure-print

That one should work too - I just printed the bottom half. I wanted to use less plastic, so I made this version. Also the cuts along the snapfit make it easier to get this version open.

I could not have made it without the fantastic work of Mikko's Arduino Box model, which I used for the model of the Uno itself: tinkercad.com/things/gj927lPLv2P-arduino-box

I like the idea but... how do you use the Arduino now that it is enclosed ?
