This 3D printable BeagleBone Black case features a snap on lid with access to all the I/O ports. The board is held in place by locating pins that align with the mounting holes in the board. The case has been designed with modularity in mind, and the lid can easily be removed and replaced with cape extensions.

Cape extensions for this case will be designed for the Logic Supply line of capes. There will also be a blank extension available to allow tinkerers to create a snap on case extension for their BeagleBone Black project.
This case is open hardware, and you are welcome to customize it as needed. Let us know if you would like to see any specific additions or features.
