Working on a 3D printed case for the Gamebuino

Here is my work so far for the front plate of the case.

I just got to put a few holes for the speaker. Undecided if i want to make the ICSP accessable atm. But hope to get my printer soon and make a clear case for my gamebuino.

That is looking cool!
Any reason for omitting holes for the LEDs? Or will it be clear plastic?

The first is going to be clear plastic. I want to use hex fill with a thin edge to give that futuristic/ Industrial look. haven't really done much with the bottom yet with the switch and LEDs. Still planning, but looks like i will build a rail to bend the light so they appear out the bottem (like optic fibre)

This is pretty neat! The open sides of the gamebuino are fine, but I like the idea of a more traditional case. I'm looking forward to the final result.

http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2066066 Here is the finished model. This is a first iteration and the shape feels really nice and solid.

It came out a bit thin and had a few splits, gonna do some mods and do another print. Please let me know your feedback and comments.

Hey a clamshell case! I've been waiting on one of these for a long time. Thanks for sharing.
