This is a two-part case for Arduino Nanos or clones of it (as featured in the pictures). It is similar to a design by spradlinb, but made from sketch.


  • The two halves just clip together, if printed with the right clearance (see Instructions)
  • USB port accessible
  • All top and bottom pins accessible as far as the plastic part of the pin headers
  • Top 6 pins do not protrude from the case
  • Arduino board is held in place by four small pillars

The Arduino Nano 3D model was created by Andrew Whitham (https://grabcad.com/library/arduino-nano--1).


The bottom part can be printed normally.

For the top part that clips on the bottom part, there are several versions:
For example NANOCASE-top-0.05.stl is for an interference fit with 0.05 mm overlap. The file with +0.05 has a positive clearance of 0.05 mm.

On my Flashforge Creator Pro, 0.05 mm overlap and 0.2 mm layer height worked fine.

The PRT files were created with Siemens NX 9.

Excellent body, made immediately.

something wrong with the stl files. I tried to print and halfway through every time, it would shift
