Housings for prototypes (electronics)

  1. Apr 2, 2014 #1
    As my hobby, I'm working on a robot. I've got the electronics mostly done, and it works. Programming is not a problem, since I'm a professional developer. What's got me stumped is housing the PCB boards.

    I've look at some products online, but I can't seem to find anything that would allow me to mount and stack several boards in a housing. I've got boards raging from 3" X 2 1/2" to 5" X 7". I'm being rough with the figures here, no matter, where do you find housing generic enough to do this?

    What do you use for spacing boards of different sizes in a housing? I could probably use more than an inch of vertical spacing between boards (being able to choose custom spacings would be good).
