I just started with the arduino and right at the very beginning I felt that I needed some sort of base to put the arduino on. I was reading one article from ladyada (http://www.ladyada.net/images/arduino/bumperplace.jpg) and she was using some rubber bumpers on the bottom of the board. I thought about that and decided to make myself some sort of a holder.
These are the instructions how to make that arduino holder.
Thank you for checking it out.
Step 1: Materials and tools
- piece of acrylic (2mm);
- motherboard computer standoff (6/32 thread);
- rubber bumpers.
For tools this is what I used:
- drill bit (1/8");
- socket wrench.
Remember that besides acrylic you can use plywood, Formica etc.
Step 2: Cutting process
After defining the measures I mark them on the acrylic.
Once I have the line on the acrylic it's time to cut. Here I'm using a hacksaw to do the job. You can use a dremel as well.
Don' t forget to sand the edges. :)
