This is a protective casing meant for an Arduino UNO R3. It has pin accessibility through a plexi top. It does a great job protecting the arduino from static shortages and just wear and tear from everyday use. The box is currently being used in my school's robotic class to protect an arduino. It is is nicknamed, "The Shaanduino". I am just going to post the files instead of a step-by-step instructable to make it easy for you guys.

Step 1: Plexy Glass TOP

So the top part is see through so you can see what is going on in the arduino. It has easy acces to all of the input and output ports. i am attaching 2 files of the same thing. 1 is a .STL and the other is .SLDPRT. I cut my part on a cnc laser blaster. You have to export the file and you may have to convert the file to a different format to print on a laser cutter.
This is really nice, I'm going to put the file on a USB I carry everywhere. Next time I visit a hackerspace or somewhere doing demos on 3d printing I'm certain I'll be glad of it!<br> <br> I'd suggest extending the slots on the plexglass top all the way out to the edge however; it's mean when wiring the UNO outside of the box before putting it in the wires could remain attached to whatever they run to without removing and reinstalling them through the holes; this would be helpful for beginners who are more likely to make mistakes through inexperience or more advanced users who are running a lot of wires and would appreciate preventing problems for themselves.<br> <br> Also, adding a hole above the &quot;reset&quot; button to allow a small screwdriver or toothpick to hit it would help save time spent attaching and reattaching the lid occasionally.<br> <br>
Let me know how it prints when you do decide to print it.
Thanks for the ideas!! I will definitely put these factors into consideration for my next version.
Cool :) <br>
