Customized Arduino Cases Made with Multitool 3D Printer

Using 3D printing and CNC milling you can make customized Arduino cases that shield the electronics and looks really cool.

Multitool 3D printer like Zmorph 2.0 SX give engineers and makers the means to manufacture various custom-made and fitted items, just like these customized Arduino casings. Each one was made using different materials and can be used for various types of projects.

The best way to make your own Arduino case is to 3D print it. This is also a great opportunity to try some customization. For gaming-related Arduino project, Paula Szarejko designed a case resembling an arcade table and 3D print it using ABS filament. With Pac-Man characters that can be pinned on top of an engraved plexiglass cover, she achieved a unique and fun look without compromising the functionality.

Second of our customized Arduino cases was CNC milled in 2 and 6 mm thick plywood using ZMorph 2.0 SX. The parts were then screwed together to make an elegant wooden box that can easily hide the electronics when used in a more stylish or home interior.

Finally, we have the most colorful of the customized Arduino cases. Instead of 3D printing it with ABS, Paula CNC milled various colors of 2 and 6 mm plexiglass. The translucent top cover was also CNC milled and additionally engraved with a pattern and Arduino logo using a smaller drill. Plexiglass required less post-production than ABS too because it’s naturally smooth and shiny. This colorful case can make your electronics projects stand out in every workshop.
