3. Training: Gehäuse für Arduino  / 3rd training: Arduino housing


This time I wanted to create my own housing for an Arduino Mega. The challenges have been:

  • Again both parts had to match precisely.
  • Both parts schould fit together with cants to give a better weather resistance.
  • The bottom should be open on one side to give access to the USB port and power without dismounting the Arduino.


Schnappschuss (2017-08-21 18.23.52)


Ich habe den Deckel verändert. Nun gibt es 3 Reihen mit jeweils 4 Schlitzen, in die 5 Jumperkabel passen. Hier werden Kupplungen verbaut werden. Diese werden dann mit Heisskleber fixiert. Mit ihm werden auch die Schlitze verschlossen werden, die nicht gebraucht werden.

Hier eine Bewegungsstudie:


I’ve changed the top part. It has now 3 rows of 4 slits, in which 5 jumper cables will fit. Here female ones will be used. They will be fixed with hot glue. The slits not used will also be closed by hot glue.

Here’s a movement study:

As ever: By clicking onto the YouTube button, you can watch in 1080p.


Stay tuned! 

Blog will be continued…
