For a school health project, I woulld like to place my indoor station in a classroom. Since this is very theft-sensitive, I started thinking about a mild way to secure my station. As we have a 3D-printer in our hackerspace (and there are hackerspaces and fablabs all over the world), I considered creating a case for the station in openSCAD (a 3D design language - www.openscad.org) and to share it with the community.
Obviously, the strength of this solution strongly depends on the material used to print. The typical plastics actually allow to break open the system pretty easily. Nevertheless, it's still a visual form of lockdown - often this will be enough to discourage occasional thieves.
The idea is to connect the two sides with 3 times f.e. Alan bolts and a long M3 rod. The design't isn't printed yet - it's in the plans...
Here are some screenshots:
