Introduction: Arduino Nano Every Case
Have you ever needed an extra bit of protection for your Arduino Nano Every, or you just wanted a stylish case that was still functional and is breadboard friendly? Well you have come to the right spot because today I'm going to show you how to make a simple, 3D printed, stylish, and breadboard-friendly case for your Arduino Nano Every. The Arduino Nano Every is the newer and faster counterpart of the more original Arduino Nano. The only problem though with the newer boards though, is that there is less documentation on them and hardly any 3d printed case designs for them, due to having a bit different sizing. So I designed one and I hope you enjoy it!
Step 1: Supplies & Materials
So to make this design, all you need to get started is access to a 3d printer, some filament of your choice, around 10 cm of clear 1.75mm filament for the fiber optic effect (optional), and the files that are below. You can also get the files from my Tinkercad design here if you want to view the original.
Step 2: Slicing and 3d Printing
Before 3D printing this file you will need to slice it (not literally). To do this you will need to open your favorite slicing software(my favourite is Ultimaker Cura which you can download here) and import the models. You can print both at the same time but I prefer to print them separately. For the print settings, I did 50% infill but you can probably get away with less... No raft, no supports, and .1mm layer height. You can probably rotate it different ways but I found it prints best with the flat parts on the bottom.
Step 3: Adding the Fiber Optic Effect
This step is optional but is very easy and makes the case look much more awesome. To do this, take around 10mm of clear 1.75mm 3d printing filament and cut it in half. Now insert the two pieces of filament into the two holes on the top part of the case like in the picture above, you might need to force it in but that's okay because it means it will stay in longer :) Now put the Arduino Nano Every board in and see if it fits, if the lid does not fit on all of the way you will need to shorten the two pieces and try again. If everything fits together you are good to go!
Step 4: Finished
And that's it! you now have an awesome, 3d printed, stylish, protective, and breadboard-friendly case for your Arduino nano. You can also use the bottom part of the case for a stand like in the picture above to show off your board...
