This Arcade videogame uses a Raspberry Pi 2 board with 7 " display and a suitable shield for button management. The front panel backlight is achieved by 2 RGB LED modules whilst the whole system is powered by 5VDC/2A switching power supply. All sides of the cabinet are made with a 3D printer with an adeguate size printing plate (such as the 3drag BIG) and are fixed together by M4x12 countersunk screws and M4 bolt.

I added the .stl files (signed NMRP) related to the new case that allows you to mount a 7 "display with HDMI side connector (https://www.futurashop.it/7INCHHDMI_TOUCH_MONITOR code 7INCHHDMI).

Ciao,ho un display 7 pollici con hdmi e mini usb sul fianco, si può montare oppure serve l'altro tipo di lcd? grazie

Ciao, ultimamente ho modificato il case proprio per ospitare un display con HDMI e micro USB posti sul fianco. Appena posso pubblico i nuovi componenti.

bene,vedo che hai messo i file..giusto? sono quelli con la sigla nmrp? (per il display 7" attacco sul fianco) grazie

Ciao, si sono quelli

the cable is used to distribute the main power to all circuits of the Mini Arcade device.

Hi All

Just wondering if anyone that has built this project could tell me how this cable is used?

• 1x 30 cm cable with four 5,5x2,1DC plug and one DC jack


Hi, You can import STL files into Google SketchUp and then modify them as you like without problems.

I'd love to use the official Raspberry Pi 7 inch screen in this butt the mounts are different. Any chance at getting the source file for just the screen bezel so I can modify it?

Any chance of getting the source files either .step or SKP what ever you used.

I can import these STL's into F360 and convert to Brep but it's a bit of a pain to work with like this with any curves or circles

Hi, You can import STL files into Google SketchUp and then modify them as you like.

I would love to do this project but some parts are too big for my printer (sides and front button panel). What can I do to cut the files in to smaller pieces?

Can you post the skp file? I bought a 7" IPS display and I need to modify the bezel for it to fit.

What are the outer sizes of the machine?
Are the parts printable on a 220x220x240 heatbed?

you could attach the wiring diagram? to understand how it is placed and configured the electronic parts (buttons, displays, etc.)

Thank you

really nice as a project. compliments

how solid is this and how big is there any plans for 10inch screen

Thank you very much! I was inspired by your admirable job because I really like it.
