This is a completely customizable Arduino case made with OpenScad. You can configure the height and thickness of the walls and bottom of the case.


I uploaded three versions of the case to demonstrate what can be done with the OpenScad file. You can also make your custom version of the case by editing the global variables in the OpenScad file.

UPDATE: You may want to increase the size of the arduino variables by 1mm and add 0.5mm to connectors position variables if you plan on printing with a wall thicker than 2mm.

The white print displayed here has been print with the following values in the openscad:
arduino_width = 55;
arduino_length = 70;
arduino_usb_x = 10;
arduino_power_x = 4;

Wow, that
lt;s nice work! Thanks for sharing!

I'd been meaning to design one of these for a while now - thanks for sharing!

A couple of notes: The Arduino Mega 2560 is 102mm long for those without a calliper to hand :) I also changed the width of the wall from 2 to 1 during my second print. This was because during the first print (with skeinforge settings of 0.4 height/1.5 WoT ratio, fill of 0.4) filling the gap betwe
en the walls really made the printer vibrate!

Eh, thanks for the input. I am still working to improve that object and your input is very appreciated! With thicker walls the plastic seems to shrink a bit more so I'l have to add an extra mm to the Arduino dimensions.
