Atari 2600 Cartridge Housing
by joegrand, published
This was co-designed back in 2002 with the friendly fellows from toolinc.com, but never saw the light of day (until now!)

Any ideas on why at 81% or so my extruder stops extruding? I've tried running this a couple of times and the base works out great, but when it comes to the sides, nothing is happening.. Or should I just wait for it to finish?
I'm not sure of anyone selling the cartridge PCBs. However, all of my PCB design files are open source and available on my site:
You could also re-purpose original Atari cartridge PCBs and add the required 7404 inverter.

Make sure your platform is level. The top and bottom housings take up most of the space on the Thing-o-Matic build platform and if there is uneven heating, the housing will warp and won't fit into the Atari very well (like the one I made).
The snaps along the housing edges are pretty brittle and the label area comes out a bit funky as it's recessed a bit. I had the best results at 100% infill and 1 shell.
Looks especially swell in any color other than the typical Atari cartridge color of black.
