Topic: Arduino Uno proto shield is firm on Mega acrylic box around Due and works (Read 102 times) previous topic - next topic

I found no acrylic box for Arduino Due, but cheap one for Arduno Mega:


First I thought that some drilling is needed for both USB connectors and power jack.

Then it turned out to be easier just to not use the front part of the acrylic box at all. The first cut with plier on top part was good (in order to free space needed for Due's power jack), but second cut did split off a much bigger part than planned. But that was fine:
 

I had to shorten 6 ICSP pins and 4 Debug pins as well as 3 bottom power jack connectors to make Arduino Due fit completely into box vertically:


I was surprised that even Uno proto shield is firm on top of acrylic box for Arduino Due and works:


I have no direct plans for using that box but wanted to see whether Mega box can be used and how.

Hermann.
