Casimir energy is always indicated as a potential source to generate a traversable wormhole. It is also used to prove the existence of negative energy which can be built in the laboratory. However, in the scientific literature there is no trace of the consequences on the traversable wormhole itself. In this work, we would like to consider such a source to see if and which kind of traversable wormhole can be produced. In a further analysis, we examine also the consequences of quantum weak energy conditions on the traversability of the wormhole. We find agreement with the original Casimir traversable wormhole. Nevertheless, despite the traversability result, one finds once again that the traversability is only in principle but not in practice.
