This is a case for Raspberry Pi made to look like a scale NES console.
Mini cartridge files available here.
It's part of my 'NESPi' project that you can read more about on my blog.
I've also put together a kit for the electronics available here.
The included supports for the top and bottom shells worked well for my printer, different setups/tolerances etc. may vary your results.
If you don't use them then you will need supports when printing those pieces.
You need approx 50g of each colour, I used 20m(1.75mm) of each filament and just about had enough to print all the coloured pieces.
I also tried 3DPrima filaments and I preferred these, they seemed to print a bit smoother, the PLA is a bit softer and they're available on spools unlike the Faberdashery filament.
ABS for the bottom because I was concerned about heat in the case warping PLA. If you use a fan, PLA should be fine.
You'll need 4 x M2 6mm (No.2 1/4") screws to fix the Raspberry Pi into the case.
Use the printed washers to make sure the screws don't penetrate the bottom.
The cartridge tray clips into the hole in the top shell. You might have to use a bit of force and twist it in, but it shouldn't be too difficult.
You can watch my quick video to get an idea of how it goes together (a more in depth guide is coming soon)
Note: Remove the microSD card from the Raspberry Pi before installing into the case.
