    UEB Transparent Acrylic Case Shell Enclosure Gloss Box For Arduino MEGA 2560 R3 (Electronics)

    This transparent acrylic protective case enclosure, for an Arduino Mega 2560 R3, is supplied in a self-assembly kit form. After completion, the finished item provides both mechanical and electrical protection to the circuit board inside.

    The instructions provided are quite basic and resemble more of a parts list. Some of the procedures can be a little awkward, so you need a certain amount of patience to complete this project ! The first procedure involves the removal of the protective coverings applied to both sides of the six pieces of clear acrylic which form the case. The adhesive-backed material is bonded quite tightly to the acrylic. It’s best to use a finger nail to start removing it by scratching at one of the corners and gently pulling off the covering. Using a metallic item, such as the blade of a knife, will probably damage the acrylic, as it’s easily scratched.

    The base of the case, has ten, 2mm holes, of which the inner six holes align with the mounting holes in the Arduino board. An easy method of attaching the board to the base is as follows. Firstly, hold the base section vertical and place the six, 10mm long M2 screws provided, into the holes used to support the board (from the underside – so the screw heads will be underneath the completed box). Now, place a piece of thin card against the screw heads to prevent them dropping back out and then place the base (with the card still pressing against the screw heads) onto a flat surface and then pull the card out.

    Place a spacer onto each protruding screw and fit the acrylic side-piece which has the cut-outs for the USB and DC power connectors. Lower the Arduino board onto the screws and fit the nuts – there isn’t much space to turn each nut, so you might find tweezers useful. Don’t lift the base until all six nuts have been tightened, or the screws will probably drop out ! Tighten the screws very lightly or the acrylic material may crack. This method of securing the board, as described, is easier than fitting the securing screws from the top side of the board, as it’s tricky to get all the spacers to align and stay in place, unless you glue them in place firstly.

    The remaining sides can now be fitted. Lastly, position the top of the box, applying slight pressure to hold the parts together whilst fitting the remaining four, 18mm long M2 screws from below or above – it’s doesn’t really matter which way round they face.

    Summing up: The finished case looks very nice with easy access to the analogue, digital, ICSP connectors and reset switch etc., due to the accurately machined apertures in the top section of the box.
