The DSO138 digital oscilloscope that I've put together recently is a nice kit but it lacks a case and it's always nice to have an LCD display protected. I decided to do something about that and make an acrylic case on my laser cutter, before it stopped working anyway.

This is the end result...

The case is made up of two parts of 3mm clear acrylic connected with 28mm M3 bolts.

This is the top part, which is the more interesting of the two parts of the case...

The bottom part is just a rectangle with holes cut out for the bolts.

I used some rubber feet on the bottom to hide the nuts.

These are some of side shots of the case...

I put the SVG files for the case on my GitHub project here.
