QT Py Case

3D print yourself a snap fit case to house a QT Py and a STEMMA QT breakout board. The bottom cover has built-in holder for the QT Py that can be secured without any screws!

Modular Design

The top cover has several vents that can be used as mounting holes so you can secure the board in different orientations.

The bottom cover features similar slots so you can mount it to either the top or bottom.

QT Accessories

The case features two mounting tabs for attaching to surfaces. Just snap fit the covers over the framing with the opening lined up for the USB-C Port.
