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.

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: https://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: https://tinkercad.com/things/gj927lPLv2P-arduino-box

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.

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

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

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!
