Out of curiosity, I took a look at what other people were doing for this contest. I was inspired by this project log in the Nanodrone project. In the link below, the author designed a case for 3D printing. 

I wanted to do something similar but I didn't have a 3D printer. And also all the Makerspace facilities near my home are closed due to the coronavirus situation. I decided to create a paper craft version of it. I can print it on colored stock paper.

Final Design of Paper Craft Enclosure

Thus, here is my design for the paper craft enclosure for the Cypress PSoC® 6 WiFi-BT Pioneer Kit (CY8CKIT-062-WiFi-BT).

The original files can be found open-source on my github repository. Feel free to download it and make one yourself!

Initial prototype using paper

Final prototype using card stock

Ha! Thank you for citing the project!. I was just writing that regardless of the material (I am a fan of cardboard and I have done a whole series of cardboard projects for STEM articles), you got better and more precise measures. I think my design has a couple of mistakes I will correct for a new 3D printed version based on your very precise and well done design!

Cheers. Enrico

Thanks for checking in on my project! I was inspired by your design but I wanted the casing to a tighter fit to the board, so I added a "step" to the part after the LCD display. My final prototype used 200gsm A4 paper.

I would love to see your new 3D design. I hope to print your design in the future when I have access to a 3D printer.
