Anyone seen these before? Quite clever I thought.



I think they a just a short run because they are 3D printed, but I like the idea and done in a material that's just a bit flexible and grippy I think they would be very useful to keep pins off the bench and stop the board sliding around with every moved cable.

Neat. Yeah, I thought about 3D-printing a case. Too expensive.

Yeah, but as a moulded product it would be cheap. Expensive setup though I guess.

Hmmmm... A couple pieces of Aluminum and some rtv silicone...

I laser cut face plates and some times I have some space I will add a design such as a support for arduino. It's a planar thing, not snap on or anything.

Neat idea.  I wonder if the file is available on Thingiverse for 3d printing.
Where did you find it?

Looks like he is selling some.

The thing I like is that, if made with the right material, it would "snap" on like those iPad/phone cover thingies.

I think they would be very useful to keep pins off the bench and stop the board sliding around with every moved cable.

Lego works great for that: I screwed some medium-sized baseplates to blocks of wood (for mass and a little more rigidity).  The spacing is pretty close to "right" for holding Arduinos.  And if you have other, separate subassemblies (like pots or servos) you can easily build temporary structures for them that hold them steady relative to the Arduino.

I used to have an online photo gallery showing some examples, but the (bleep)s at Cox figured out they could improve their profit margin by .00001% by getting rid of their free customer websites, and I haven't found suitable replacement service.

The "snap-on" (or "stretch-on") holder would be cute, but it doesn't do anything for projects where you have other pieces that also need to be held.

Those thick plastic cutting boards are a good source of sturdy bases, too. You can get them for nearly nothing at yard sales, the plastic is easy to work with common tools, and you don't have to make an all-day trip to a plastics specialty store if you live in the hinterlands  :)
