It's two inches wide! And you won't have to blow on it to make it look cute!
Designed on OpenSCAD.
UPDATE: Uploaded the art for the sticker as an RTF.

If you don't feel like printing, buy one here: http:/store.rabbitengineering.com


I printed mine on Replicator 2, with PLA and glued using cyanoacrylate (superglue). I printed using gunmetal PLA for the black parts, and white PLA for the other colours, which were then painted with Rustoleum spray and Tamiya acrylics.
Print one of each part, except for controllerbutton.stl - you need 2 of those.
NES purists will need to build two controllers, so remember to print more of those parts :-)
The colours for the parts are:
Red: controllerbutton.stl
Tan: controllerbody.stl, bodytop.stl
Light Grey: bodybottom.stl
Black: blackblockfront.stl, blackblockrear.stl, controllerplate.stl, controllerdpad.stl
To assemble:
Glue controllerplate to controllerbody, ensuring that the dpad hole (cross shape) ends on the LEFT of the controller.
Glue controller dpad to controllerbody (using the peg and hole as guides)
Glue the two controllerbuttons to controllerbody (using the holes as a guide)
Glue bodytop to bodybottom, ensuring that you end up with a vertical slot on the RIGHT side of the console as it faces you.
Glue blackblockfront to the vertical slot that has been formed by the two body parts. The fit here is pretty snug
Glue blackblockrear to the slot at the back of bodytop.
Optionally, print a little sticker with the logo on label paper.

Did anyone have to scale any of them? The top of the nes isn't the same width as the bottom

That's very odd - I've printed dozens of these little guys using these files. Are your pieces off by a little, or a lot?

I'm getting 4.25 mm extra on the bottom nes print. Since it appears to be a problem only experienced by me I decided to do some math to determine the scale to solve this problem. So I will try to print it out with a bodybottom z scale of 89.14%

That is very strange - I just downloaded the files again to check, and they work. However, the bottom part is not centered on the print plate by default - I think that might be the issue. Try to force the part to the print plate perhaps?

I centered it the first time, tried using the calculated z scale and it worked and got it put together. Looks like I should print a 20mm cube and make sure calibration is all good

Good catch, thanks! Link is updated.

PERFECT REPLICA except for the 2 red button who is really disturbing


Do you happen to still have the image you used to print the logo?

Just uploaded it as an RTF (should be the correct size if you print on 8.5"x11" paper)

Awesome, thanks!

I've got absolutely no use for this. Yet, I cant do anything but love it :D

Can you make the Famicon?

Make a snes next please!!

I think that's possible :-)

Awsome! Really like this model.

Somebody needs to make one of these that fits a ras pi

+1 for the idea. Think it would make an awesome case for a raspberry pi that runs retropie....

Idea of the day right here.

This is amazing
