how to desing a case (box) virtualy ? Answered
Hello everybody. (Dr. Nick accent)
I'm currently doing some electronics projects (atx PSU, clocks, getting my brother into electronics, ...), and i reach the inevitable step of where to put them.
I want to put them into nice cases (boxes), tried to find some already made and adapt them to my needs but TOO EXPENSIVE!!!!
so i thought, if my PCBs for my projects are DIY why cant my cases be DIY too?
I tried to make case projects manually but there was allways some thing not right (most of times i forgot the thickness of the materials D'OH), so i tryed Google SketchUp, and now i caught up 123D by Autodesk, both not very through investigated.
I'm trying to get a piece of software that let me do my plans (3D if possible), and if let me deconstruct the project into some printable layouts to guide me cutting some wood derivate or plexiglass (no acess to a laser cutter).
What do you think i should use, one of the already mentioned or a new 1?
thank you in advance instructables community
