Description: The SparkFun enclosure now in clear! This is a very simple, but surprisingly handy project box designed by SparkFun. The box comes with three plastic pieces and includes 4 screws. The insert on the end of the box can be CNC milled (or just dremeled out by hand) for connectors, LEDs, switches.

The bottom section of the enclosure has a unique pattern of raised dots. These dots are on a 0.2" grid. Our plastic standoffs fit nicely onto the 0.09" diameter dots. This allows for a large number of standoff configurations. Using our plastic standoffs, you can mount any shaped board into the enclosure. A small amount of super glue or hot glue will make the mounting permanent.

The outer corners of the SFE box also fit a Eurocard sized PCB (100x80mm). This makes the SFE box ideal for enclosing Olimex and other large development boards.

Customer Comments

  • Did you have to put YOUR logo on it? I mean if we are advertising for you, you might as well cut us a break on the price… not make it more expensive to include your logo.

    With your logo on it; doesn’t that mean we cannot sell an item with this enclosure commercially?

  • What type of plastic is this?

  • Just a comment about the screws that you send with the box. Might I suggest you use a ¾" #4 screws. I have had trouble using the ½" screw to open and close the box more than once. I finally bought some ¾" screws and have had no problems since.

  • I’m interested in using this box for a project but am looking for some confirmation on my thinking.

    My project will use two boards: a Arduino Uno R3 on bottom; and, a Wombat board (PRT-08619) on top. My best estimates are that the Uno will need under ½"; and, the Wombat will need ½" once products mounted.

    Based on the Dimension Drawing, the head room in the box is (.50-.10) + (.645-.10) = just about 1".

    I’m new to microelectronics, so I want to double check before I jump.

    My questions: Have you mounted two boards with approximate dimensions described above in this case? Do you have any suggestions for internal mounting of either board?

    Thank you!

  • really nice box. Would be possible provide a .step or .stp file of this box?. I have seen that your soapbox is on, would be a usefull file to have a good idea about our final projects.


  • Which standoffs fit this case?
    Is it the PRT-00444, Standoff - Nylon (3/8", 4-40)?

  • Awesome case.
    I had luck using a drill bit to get a pilot hole and then using a nibbler to make some rather nice square holes. The nibbler can ‘whiten’ scar the immediate area around it if you get it to close to the edge of the plastic, but otherwise works great! Just make sure your nibbler has enough clearance for its cutter as compared to the thickness of this plastic.

  • plase can this come in bigger sizes so for example this could be small and another being medium and large with various sized inserts, becuase seriously i have a project and i cant fit it in this product with orination of PCBs being crucial. although i have said this i like the concept of the product it’s just i wont buy it becuase of the size issues.

  • $11,95 is a bit overpriced for a plastc box, right?

    • It’s larger than it seems. Take out a ruler and measure 11 by 9.5 cm to get an idea.

  • Could you guys post the 3D CAD for this in .stp format?

  • Any idea when these are going to be back in stock?

  • Another interesting thing. If you want to update the screws to something better looking, a 2-56 (¾ inch long) cap head screw fits wonderfully. You just need to thread the bottom holes. When the screw is in place, the head sits flush to the surface.

  • Would I be able to fit a BlueSmirf Gold module and an Arduino in one of these?
    Would I have issues with decreased bluetooth range from the BlueSmirf?

  • Can Sparkfun please update this text to show dimensions of the product and describe the dimensions of what it is designed to hold?
    Does it hold an Arduino with a daughter board attached?
    And batteries?

  • I will like to use one of these for an LCD project. Can this allow display without any obstructions like the “bird” in front of the case blocking display? Also I’m guessing 100x80mm is the maximum pcb size that will fit in there. Thanks.

  • Very nice box. I would have liked some rubber stick on feet for the bottom. I will have to get some from Wally-World on my next trip there.
    It was just the right size once the other components and hook up wires were installed.
    At first, I thought is was too big. I used all the space!
    I used my soldering iron to make rough openings and then a small file to shape and smooth the cutouts until the USB and DB-25 jacks fit.
    Clear plastic is a great way to show off DIY projects.
    I feel it also encourages one to improve their craftsmanship since everyone can see inside.
