Nixie Clock Case

Yay! My laser cut plastic from Ponoko arrived and like the best ikea flatpack it assembled together and all the parts actually fit!


It's six rectangles with slots in the top and bottom and ridges on the side, front and back walls. It doesn't hold itself together very well if you aren't careful, though a bit of glue would soon fix that. For now I'm leaving it as it is.


The main control PCB goes on the outside back, where you can easily access the buttons to change the time. Power supply is inside on one side wall, and the two nixie driver boards themselves are on the bottom. Amazingly, my laser cut holes line up with the holes in the PCBs and I am able to screw everything into place! Hurrah!
