Arduino mounting plate

Img_17960

A common problem when playing with Arduino is deciding how to secure the circuit board to the rest of your project. Use this laser cuttable mounting plate to attach an Arduino to your LEGO Technic or Bitbeam creations.

You can check out the OpenSCAD source or DXF files in the Bitbeam repo on GitHub. 

Or admire it on Thingiverse!

Or watch a slideshow on Flickr!

I manually cut the mounting plate in the above photo at home with my jewelers drill press and jigsaw. Here’s a fun little technique when you don’t have a laser cutter nearby: Print out the design on sticker paper. Then attach the sticker to the wood. Finally, use your drill and saw to cut out the final design.

When I get back to TechShop I’ll do a proper laser cut, and post more photos.

Here’s the completed assembly connected to other beams:
