Personalize these 3D printed cases
Building something, of course, requires your skills in electronics. But packing it up is often a mechanical exercise. You can buy off the shelf, of course, but sometimes it’s hard to find the right case. You probably also have a 3D printer, but sometimes 3D printing an entire case can be time consuming and not always completely appealing. Enter [Johannes-Bosch] and Fusion 360. These 3D printed frames assemble in boxes and are easy to customize. The panels are aluminum, although we imagine you could substitute for wood, acrylic, or even a 3D printed plastic sheet, if you wish.
The video below shows some examples. If your German isn’t up to par, ask YouTube to automatically translate the subtitles and you’ll get an idea.
There are several parameters in the design, so you can set not only the basic dimensions, but also other parameters that customize the assembly of the box, including the thickness of the panels and a support for a printed circuit board.
Everything is symmetrical, so you print two parts at the top and two at the bottom. The four parts go hand in hand with the panels. Oh, and don’t forget to put whatever you want inside, too.
If you’re using Fusion 360, or want to, it’s worth checking out. If you’re more interested in OpenSCAD, we’ve seen a similar library for it. If you want other ideas on the housings, we have a few ideas.
