Experiment PCB holder

For non RF electronics experiments I often use PCB's like shown below.  



When the experiment starts to be used on a regular basis, it's nice to build it in a cabinet. But sometimes that isn't the best option. For example when you build a AVR programmer adapter for programming ATMEGA328P micro controllers or a ISP programmer for bare Arduino NANO boards where you need to stick parts in or on. Leaving the PCB exposed can be tricky thing on a workbench where sometimes small particles of metal are laying around. 

For those cases I designed a simple PCB holder for 2x8 cm and the 4x6 cm PCB's. 


They accept the PCB perfectly and have 4 push pins to fixate the PCB to the holder. Allowing the experiment to be placed on any surface without the risk of shorts. 


For example on my ATMEGA328P programmer. 


I made the design publicly available so you print your own but licensed it Attribution-NonCommercial 3.0 Unported (CC BY-NC-SA 4.0).
Meaning : 

  • Attribution — You must give appropriate credit, provide a link to the license, and indicate if changes were made. You may do so in any reasonable manner, but not in any way that suggests the licensor endorses you or your use.
  • NonCommercial — You may not use the material for commercial purposes. 
  • ShareAlike — If you remix, transform, or build upon the material, you must distribute your contributions under the same license as the original.

It's not to be childish but it now happened a few times that a 3D design I made was sold by other people just because is was "Open source, so I can do anything I want with it" without any credits or even a token of appreciation

The STL files of the can be download from this page  on Thingiverse (if Thingiverse doesn't give a 404) or you can download this Zipfile with the parts from this website. Or when you use TinkerCad download it by clicking on the link below.
