So we've begun the process of designing a 3d-printable enclosure for the ESPicker. We're using Autodesk's Fusion 360 for the task, as it seems to be a popular option for makers getting started with CAD modeling these days.

We also created the repository for the final version of the ESPicker:

For now it's just a placeholder, but we'll post all software and hardware files as soon as they're ready for release. In the meantime you're welcome to build your own using our quick-n-dirty prototype version located at https://github.com/acrobotic/Ai_Demos_ESP8266!

Did you considered FreeCad? https://www.freecadweb.org It is a very good Open Source CAD, and it is parametric and multi platform. I use it extensively both at home and at work (version 0.17).

  Are you sure? yes | no

Yup we did, this gave us an opportunity to give Fusion 360 a try so we went for it :)
