I designed a laser-cut enclosure for the barometer in QCAD. I didn't have any footprints for the devices, so I had to measure everything, but they were primarily circles, which were simple to draft. I have a speaker port on the face that will hold a piezo element with some M3 bolts, a couple of potentiometers, and an LED. Inside, I made a layer with holes for the Arduino to mount securely. All the header pins stick into small rectangles, but I considered making some holes large enough to attach DuPont wires, but the clearance on those is too high.
I cut the enclosure, and my Arduino holder idea worked well, so I'll use that in the future. My sides fit together, but I shrunk some of the holes, so they held with friction. I'll glue up the final product. There wasn't much clearance between the potentiometers and the board, but that will be acceptable if I keep the wires tidy.
