The Arcade Cabinet
by malopezn, published
This is a project I started some ago (I still had a Prusa i3) and took me some time to finish.
Those of us who are close to the 40s, have been always touched by the idea of having a cabinet at home. Those playing machines we used to enjoy with a coin when we were boys. That's because, when I started my first 3d printer, it was something i wanted to develop.
It has to be something easy to print, not so big for a home and cheap, so I started my design in blocks. All of these blocks are printable in small printers, then, you just "stich" them with some nuts and screws and the machine comes alive. It's easy, don't be afraid.
The "brain" of the machine is a Raspberry Pi B. I don't know if they are easy to find right now with the version 2 at shops, and I don't have a Raspy2, but if someone needs it for a Raspberry 2 I can modify the STL.
The LCD is a 7'' chinese display, they are cheap and easy to find, about 20$.
Also we are going to need a voltage regulator to drop the current to 5v (Raspberry), a 12v power supply, the joystick (Sanwa Style) and 8 buttons. I use 4 of them for playing, 1 for insert coin, 1 for player start, 1 for ENTER and 1 for SCAPE.
Configuration is easy, but if someone needs it I can upload a ISO from the SD.
Hope you enjoy!
