Thing-a-Week #3: Arduino Case

This weeks thang is here! It's a case for your Arduino.

This is the first version of modular rackmountable stackable case system for Arduino and other electronics. If there is sufficient interest, after debugging the initial version I will look into getting injection molded parts made in bulk.

The cases are designed to fit 6 across in a 1U Rack, or 4 across turned the other way. So you can stack 2 longs-ways on top of 3 short-ways.

There should be room for an Arduino shield, and the space in the front of the case is for a circuit board with your alphanumeric LEDs. The end piece with a cutout is designed to hold a 3mm thick plate you can laser or hacksaw out of acrylic, wood or whatever.

Download and Enjoy.
Feedback is greatly appreciated.

As always, weekly things can be found here.
