This is a replacement screen bezel that snaps onto a PocketCHIP computer in order to add d-pad buttons. This makes it a lot easier to play your favorite PICO-8, NES, SNES, and many other games!

This piece comes in two parts, and depending on your 3D printer, supports should not be required. Simply print, combine, snap it on, and play.

Could you post the model in a more complex file type? Like .blend or .max or .obj

I dont know if its possible, but is there any way to break this down into smaller parts? maybe make the bezel a a dovetail connector or something. I have an M3D printer and this is just a bit to big to print out (which sucks bad!). Or possibly even a hack that is just the dpad and like, half of the adapter or something... im desperate! lol. Maybe something that clips over the original bezel on the bottom, that doesn't black the screen much or something.

Printed beautifully but when I put it on the pocket chip the top left latch snaps off from the tension. I think it's the top left because that's the last one I snap on. Any thoughts on modifications for reinforcement?

In my make, the whole thing has printed accurately and fits well but the D-pad cluster seems to be 0.5mm too far to the left and the right button isn't getting struck properly. If you could tweak it slightly that would be awesome.

Saw a Pocket CHIP on Thingiverse' front page and had to like it! Great idea!

Is that possible that we build for the whole keyboard ?

nice, would it be possible to do a similar thing for buttons?

Such a great printable hack...thank you!
