I’m making a case for my Arduino, for some reason. I’ll be getting this fabricated with the computer science building’s laser cutter tomorrow (already bought some acrylic to use). I’m not sure I really know what I’m doing, so I just stuck the pieces together in Inkscape and am hoping for the best.
I started by using MakerCase to generate a case template that’s just a little bit bigger than my Arduino. Then I had to come up with a design. This was tedious, but it was ultimately like making puzzle pieces by hand. The hard part was counting the tabs and gaps, and making sure I don’t mix them up; otherwise nothing’s gonna fit.
And, of course, I couldn’t resist adding a bit of a personal touch. I’d had the idea for a personal logo for a while now, but I never got around to making one. Here’s the excuse I wanted. Fingers crossed that it doesn’t come out like crap!
