3D Printing for Microcontrollers

One of the things I have been intending to do this year is to look at updating the ‘systems and control’ work that we do with students in year 8. We have been using the “Picaxe” micro controllers but with the developments that have been going on I decided that we might need to look at Arduino and Raspberry Pi. Both of these systems cost considerably more than Picaxe so before doing some experimenting with students I thought that it might be good to put the boards in some kind of container.

So I found a lovely printable Raspberry Pi case on Thingiverse and printed it in nice shiny red PLA. As you can see in the pictures it came out very well…. But what about Arduino? I couldn’t find anything suitable so I fired up my PC and using Creo2 designed my own, again in lovely red PLA.

Well, so far so good… Now to get down to learning how to program!
