Making a case for Arduino Board

This assignment involved designing a case for the Arduino Board.

Firstly, we measured the Arduino board using these measurements on FreeCAD.
Following were the measurements, (considering some offset to fit the board)
Height: 30 mm
Width: 60 mm
Depth: 80 mm


For designing the case, we decided to go with the finger joints. The laser cut interlocking library was used to design the case, which looks as follows:


To create the holes for USB power input and the Input pins, we used inkscape. Following is the final design of the box we made for our Arduino. (2D laser cutting diagram).


BONUS: We made two rectangular holes so that LEDs and Sensor can be connected to the Arduino while it is still in the case. So, the Arduino while in the case can be used as a device.
