3D Model 16: 3D-Printable Rubik's Robot Carrying Case

Wherever our Fully 3D-Printed Rubikís Cube Solving Robot is shown off, it always generates lots of excitement and curiosity, be it a classroom full of kids, an office full of co-workers, or a trade show floor full of attendees.

Now there is a way to bring about even more excitement and curiosity, even before the robot is unveiled. Just carry it into the room in a briefcase that is also fully 3D-printed!

This carrying case was designed specifically with the robotís dimensions in mind. The robot will fit in it perfectly with plenty of room for accessories. By no means a small project, the case requires a printer with a large print platform, such as Creality CR-10, as some of its parts are outright massive. There are 44 parts overall, and you will need a big bag of bolts and nuts to hold them together.

Please note that while this carrying case will do a great job protecting your robotís delicate machinery as you haul it around town, a shipping container IT IS NOT!
