It's a fairly straightforward case for your Raspberry Pi. (Tested with Pi 3, and 3 B+)
A departure from the stereotypical SNES style cases for retro gaming.
Designed with the intent to reduce the footprint of the system, it still has ample room
for small heatsinks and a 30mm x 30mm x 8mm fan. The system has plenty of
vents so heat is blown out through the top and side. The base is tall and hollow, as
to allow standard Micro USB charger and HDMI cords to fit.
The Nexus has a 16GB micro SD, and is run by a Raspberry Pi 3 B+. The OS is
Retropie 4.4 or above.(Retropie is built on Raspbian Stretch Lite) To be able to
run more power intensive games (PS1, N64, etc) I overclocked the Raspberry Pi
You will need a Bluetooth or USB connected controller, along with a Keyboard and Mouse to use Retropie.
The Case is designed with ease of removal of the Micro SD card in mind, for quick OS changes and updates.
WARNING: OVERCLOCKING YOUR PI CAN DESTROY IT AND VOID ANY WARRANTY, DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK! IF YOU DO, ACTIVE COOLING IS A MUST!
Because you can just reprint the Pi Console Case, I simply super glued it together;
but if you wish, the base can be mounted to the case with M2 x 4mm screws. The Plate will still need to be glued though.
UPDATE: The new model can be found at: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3264270
The Case and Pi Mounting Side Plate dont need supports; but the Hollow Base will.
Supports for Base only!
Brim for all prints: 8mm
Make sure to drill out mounting holes for the fan. Should be 2mm.
De-bur around edges, as the brim can leave sharp edges when removed
