Click this button to get the 3D model



The file include now the Panel Maker.
Check below in the Experimental area to download it.

My first try with OpenScad,
the box is fully customizable.
I hope you will enjoy with it, and will show us many boxes made with.

If you play with the Fillet value you will go from the sharp to the round sides box
If you want a chanfered box, set Resolution to 1.

To export each single piece, just set the other elements to No value.
The Top and Bottom Shells are the same,
so it’s not necessary to export them two times, except if you use the PCB feet option.

Check the animation below to see how to design your own box.

You can change the text shape with any font listed here .

Have fun 😉

    Added PCB feet support, fixed the shell artefact on export mode.

Please, read as well.
The PCB feet dimensions are all starting from the foot axis center.
it’s not the circuit board size, holes center only(!)

General demonstration

Here is a small demonstration how to use the Customizer to have separate pieces box.
The top and bottom shells are the same, so it’s not necessary to make 2 differents stl files.
If the front Panel is without text, then the back and front panels are the same, so again,
just export one.

Not easy to make something easy to use…
