Please watch my video for assembly https://youtu.be/RdnuUNqGxY4

The spring release I used is actually from a cheap Pokeball I had around at home that you can buy online for a few bucks. Some 1.75mm filament will also work as a hinge that can be opened manually. You may need to drill or melt a slightly bigger if you want to do that.

The holes where the wire go in for the button may not print properly because of how fine they are, so you may need to drill or heat up a pin to puncture the holes instead.

I printed mine with auto supports. If you do the same, make sure to remove any little pieces where the button clicks into position on the upper and lower inside parts as they can get easily missed. If not the button might be too sensitive.

can you upload a pdf or something of the outline for the button spring i've bent one up that works but it's far from good,

Has anyone had any luck finding the spring needed for this? I can't find one of those anywhere and I don't have any old toys to take one from. It's all I have left to do for it.

Found the perfect spring and post in one of my wife’s hair clips. I had to remove one rotation of the coil, then cut off excess and bent one end at 90 degrees. Then re-used the post that held the spring on the clip.

i bought some rod from a hobby store and made my own works a treat

so what did you use for the wire behind the button?

Wire lol. I think it was steel. So long as it's not a soft metal and can hold its shape it should be ok.

I guess you can also use this to store your SD cards?

Do Nindendo DS/3DS catridges fit as well? ^-^

No, right now it only fits Switch games, but I am working on remix that will work for 3DS games. I should have it up in a few days once I can print it out and make sure it works.

Thank you! :D

What do people use as a spring to open this? I'm having trouble finding something suitable on Amazon.

What program did you use to add auto supports and how do i do that?

Whenever I try add auto supports to this in meshmixer it doesn't work

I'm a bit late, but I'd suggest using Cura as it adds supports automatically, you just need to check the "add supports" option ^-^

yep cura as a slicer for this works beautifully

Please Please, Pretty please make this into a full sd and micro sd version too! That would be sooooo sick dude!

Are the files different than in the video, or did you paint the bottom part black on the outside? It seems like the bottom is a white piece you printed and then put into the black top piece that's empty....but that doesn't seem right either.

Yeah I painted the outside of the bottom inside piece,

What did you use to paint it cause I'm using acrylic and having 0 luck.

What supports and slicer did you use?

Supports are needed and this remix was fairly basic so it was done in tinkercad.

any reason you printed the black part separately rather than as a part of the top or bottom ?
Or was it it just to print the lids in separate colors?

I saved time by printing the inner parts in low quality and the outside shells in high. I only painted the outside of the bottom inner piece because I wanted it white on the inside instead of being all black. You could do this whole print though without needing to use paint if you don't mind that.

It looks like it allows them to print in separate colors, but also has the added benefit of covering any scars left behind by support.

It would be super nice if there were pegs or grooves of some kind to help with alignment of the red and white outer pieces on top of the black.

that would be actually really nice i've though about adding magnets to the top part so you can change out the top cap for different designs (master ball great ball ultra ball etc
