I need to buy some small plastic boxs for my project. If it possible, I need a small cut for a mini USB connector. If someone know,pls tell me know.

I don't know where you are but pactec.com and serpac.com have lots of different cases and they are carried by many distributors. I don't recall a cut out for for usb but they have several that are pretty easy to modify with a nibbler.

Using a Dremel or similar rotary tool you can easily modify plastic enclosures to provide all of the required cutouts/windows etc.

project box plastic

a dremel is a great tool but hard to control and square holes are very hard to do.... I have one and a nibbler.

The nibbler works on plastic and metal. It cuts square chunks out so with a little care, you can cut square holes (first drill out a hole). It's pretty cheap. I think they are both very useful..

I agree that both tools are great and personally use both. I just find that with sme practice I can do quite intricate cutouts rather than just square/round
