Laser cut Bus Pirate and AVR Dragon cases

A couple of days ago I saw this story on Hack a Day (On the Go Prototyping)

[Riley Porter] has been working on several different custom enclosure designs … as well as slick-looking cases for the Bus Pirate, tinyISP, and face plates for word clocks.

Well the cases were pretty slick-looking. I liked his ideas of using layers of laser cut perspex, so I designed my own Bus Pirate V2go and Atmel AVR Dragon cases.

Thanks to my friend Warren for cutting them for me.

    Very cool stew! Infact I was going to get a dragon case made up soon enough. I will have to do one too however since these are NON-COM. My website for selling this geek pron is about up. But great work man!

    Here is the latest proto.

      Thanks for the comment, I think your stuff looks better anyway :) Your latest proto looks great. Sorry about the NON-COM but I don’t really want people just putting the designs on ponoko.com or such and selling them, I’d like to keep them free.

        totally understand. I am attempting to pay for my laser cutter in designing stuff and selling it :)

        Once I get all of my stuff on my website I am going to place them on thingiverse too NON-COM so I understand. One of the cool things is I get to buy a bunch of boards that I always wanted to make stuff to enclose them!
