first attempt at the CodeBug case was mostly meant to look good - but it clearly had one significant drawback; it blocked direct access to the conductive "Legs" on the sides.
For more permanent project installations, the first version would allow soldered wire access just fine, but many of the learning projects on the CodeBug site use alligator clips - so I wanted to make room for that in this adjusted design.
|The fully stripped down starting point. Look ma, no feet.|
Without the sides, all the legs stick out with enough room for an alligator clip on each - but I now wanted to add back a little personality.
Since those side panels is where I had the robot-connector arms - purely for custom looking designs - I just moved those to the bottom and - since I had removed the goofy feet-shaped feet - now I can design custom feet or arms or other appendages to make the CodeBug gain some personality.
I also added a robot arm connector to the top middle, under the wire port, to allow for more aesthetic adjustments later.
Look for this one soon online - still have some adjustments to make...
