I wanted a box that would snap together and where every side would be a separate easy-to-print piece (no support structure). Since all the pieces (except for the handle) are printed in a horizontal orientation, this will allow me to have intricate designs on the sides and top without worrying about support structure. This box is held together by the latches on the top and bottom and not by friction. This particular box is a cube that is 100mm on a side.

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!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
