MarkoC shared this project on Thingiverse!

I bought one of these lovely nixie clocks from Ukraine, where they still have a vast stockpile of former Soviet tubes. I’ve loved them since I was a kid, and this Arduino-driven clock is just gorgeous.

The box here is my art deco style retro interpretation of a nice case for it. It looks great printed in wood filament.

The rear of the unit needs some work if I can get the time – I want to close off the wide opening and add buttons to click through to the board, as well as mount a proper PSU socket. But for a Mk 1, I’m pretty happy with it.

The case just fits on the 250mm bed of the Mk3. It should go without saying that it’s sized for the shield and Arduino, and can’t be scaled!

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
