A box to house the Electric Imp April Breakout board and a small prototype board


The Electric Imp is a cool little computer in a SD card format that has built in WIFI and some I/O
( http://electricimp.com/ ). It has a unique programming paradigm. You set your WIFI parameters using a Smartphone screen. The IMP "phones home" and registers itself. You then program it using the "Cloud"

I used a Cube 3D printer ( http://cubify.com/cube/ ) to print the box. The ABS has some warping issues, but it still works nicely

The locking tabs did not engage when I printed this on a Stratasys printer. I'll poke at the CAD file and try to snug it up when there is more time.
