Using digital fabrication techniques like 3D printing and CNC milling engineers and makers can easily customize their projects while keeping the production costs low.

At ZMorph we recently designed and manufactured three custom Arduino cases with various applications in mind - for gaming, interior design, and student projects.

In this Instructable we’re sharing all three designs, their source files, and some tips on how to make them yourself.

All three cases for Arduino boards were originally made using our own ZMorph 2.0 SX multitool 3D printer, but you can use these free source files with any kind of software, 3D printers or CNC milling machines.


Step 1: Pac-Man Arduino Case

3D printing remains one of the best ways to create custom Arduino cases. For gaming-related projects, we created a case that resembles a classic arcade table and printed it from ABS filament. There’s a plexiglass cover on top of the case with holes for Pac-Man pins that were also printed from ABS.

We used standard settings for ABS printing with 0.2 mm layer height.

1.8 mm drill was used for CNC cutting the plexiglass top, and 1.2 mm drill for engraving Uno logo on top of it.

To assemble this Arduino case you’ll also need four M3x10 screws.

<p>Those are some neat cases. I like them all!</p>
<p>Thanks! Do you plan on making one yourself? </p>
<p>amazing i love al 3 of them.</p><p>i want 1 so bad.</p><p>but it wil cost me a year to buy learn and build it myself or even longer.</p><p>if i could i buy 1them of of you.</p><p>but probebly shipping is the blocking part here in costs.</p><p>i am still amazed that we common people can do it now at home (laser cut) 3D printing. engraving.</p><p>not jaloes but almost</p>
<p>Thanks, I'm glad that you like our designs. </p><p>We do not sell printed items but you could easily use the source files from this Instructable and commission them at 3DHubs. It won't cost much and you could find a maker near you to save on shipping. </p>
