Do u have these parts in .SLDPRT? i could really use those if u let me :)

Printed this on a thing-o-matic.. Fits an UNO nice and snug and the ardvidtop had plenty of space for my Wifly shield and the components on top (after I clipped a bit out of the back :) )

Oh, and if you can, please share the Alibre file. I am using it too, maybe I can design me some improvements.

I just printed it with my cupcake, I found that the tolerances are a bit tight and when closing the lid, the bottom part hinge cracked. This is probably also due to the fact that my makerbot is not 100% calibrated. I also just printed it with 24% infill, 100% would probably be better. Having said all that: really nice box!

Ahhh! Great idea for using the filiment for the hinge pin! This is what this is all about!

HOW TO DESIGN LIKE A BOSS: needs standoffs and screwholes

Yes you are right. If you want to secure the arduino to the case you have to take care of that yourself.

This is a great design. Would you be willing to upload your source for the Video top so it can be derived to fit with other shields?

The file is an Alibre file and I don't know how to convert it to something more universal. Alibre OK?

In Alibre click to export it is: File -
gt; Export -
gt; (Save File Window Opens) -
gt; Enter Filename -
gt; Click Drop-down list for "Save as type" and select STEP or IGES for a more cad-neutral file format.

I'm not sure which version you have, but I believe all versions can export to generic files like STEP or IGES (I think for 2012 they're watering down the personal version more and hiking the price again).

STEP or IGES would work and I can probably deal with Alibre to some extent. Anything would be nice. This is definitely the most handsome, simple enclosure I've seen yet.

Those options don't appear in "Saves as" or "export" geraldcor, sorry

AD_PRT and STL are the only options available to my version of Alibre.

The files for the tops have been uploaded in the AD_PRT format that Alibre saves. If someone wants to convert and post those files that's fine.

Thanks for the comments!
