3D printing instrument storage boxes #3dPrinting #3dThursday
Equipment cases are very handy for storing unused equipment or transport gear. DuWayne’s Place blog discusses 3D printing one’s own:
I think it is time to make some protective cases for the equipment when not in use. Looking around on Thingiverse I found a small case that is similar to to a Pelican Case. I printed one and found it to be exactly what I wanted. It is very strong with a nice latch system that closes very tightly. It has a seal that can be made watertight if I run a small bead of silicone tub sealant in the grove in the bottom part of the box. Or there is a seal that can be printed using flexible filament.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
