This is a case with lid and wall mount for the Etherten arduino board from Freetronics.


Designed using Alibre.
Sliced with Netfabb.
Printed on an Ultimaker.


All three parts are designed to print without supports as oriented in the stl files:

  • Wall mount, wall face down
  • Case, closed end down
  • Lid, outside face down

Etherten board slides into slots and is held in place by the lid. Lid is affixed with four 10mm M3 bolts (total overkill, just for the looks). There's space for a shield too.

An extra hole has been added to the lid to run a cable out to a temperature sensor for my project.

Case simply slides into the wall mount. Designed to be placed on the wall with the curved sides horizontal to allow for air flow through the slots. Board doesn't get that warm, so probably doesn't matter which way you orient it, other than lid facing down; otherwise, it would fall out of the mount. Wall mount is affixed to the wall with two countersink screws.

I printed it in a translucent blue PLA; looks good with the blue LED shining through it.

This looks pretty much like what I am looking for.
Does an Arduino Uno fit inside, too? Yes, I put an ethernet jack on mine ;-)
Would you kindly share the source files? .OBJ would do.

Great design - ticks all the boxes. Prints well - even with ABS without warping. Love the face plate, allowing the potential to have different face plates for different models. Will have a look at creating an openSCAD version.

Great Thing.
Would suggest printing it solid. The outside of my print is a bit rough because of the crazy vibrations form the infill. But I'm happy with it. Top could use some sanding to make the DC power plug etc more closer to the cover panel. But this is not needed. Thanks davoque nice job.

Thanks, glad you like it.

Thanks for the comment, much appreciated :)

I like the way it was designed, and made for 3D printing, well done!
