A compact little Mario Bros "Question-mark" snap-top case to contain up to 5 of your precious DS and 3DS carts with extra room for up to 9 additional SD cards,

Available with open and closed holes.


Print the case you like (-case.stl or -case_noholes.stl"), print the lid,
put in your DS/3DS games, an extra SD card on the side. You can also fit 2 SD cards between each cartridge.

It's a pretty small case and the carts are situated somewhat low so I recommend turning the outer most cart face-in to make removal easier. Depending on how fat your fingers are, or if you can't utilize a fingernail, you may need to remove the 2nd to last cart to get it out more easily.

Print 'em! Fill 'em! Stack 'em!!

Is there any chance of a variant being released with no design on the sides? I'm interested in remixing this to make a similar box with different designs for different game franchises, and the link you posted does not seem to generate the cartridge slots for me.

I really like this! I made one today, and now my daughter wants me to make me another with her name on it instead of question marks. Any chance I can get ahold of the model for this?

I actually used Tinkercad to remix Brianenigma's box design. If you want to make the basic pixel box via Open SCAD, try this awesome tool Brian has provided:

If you want to work with various shapes and letters and seal the faces, here's how I suggest tackling your remix:

1) Download the STL from my page for the box,
2) Upload STL into Tinkercad,
3) line up and create a thin box that fits/fills the side-face of my box STL without messing with the clearances, don't be afraid to ZOOM
4) create your daughter's name out of shapes, (small boxes, etc), make sure the letter go thru and protrude the side you want to see them.
5) group the name and faces temporarily
6) Clone the face 3 more times, each one 90 degrees rotated, line up around the STL of the box & double check closely that you aren't adding to the inner or outer clearance.
7) Ungroup the faces+name boxes, select all the name shapes and set to 'holes', then re-group it all back together, DONE.

Best of luck!

I am trying to print the cube with no holes using ABS having no lift problems from the base, but in the middle of the block. The cube edges have slight lifts randomly when a question mark box layer begins or ends. Do you have any suggestions on how to remedy this problem? I have the heated bed at a steady 98 degrees Celsius.

Sounds like you have classic print warping going on. This usually occurs due to uneven cooling,
When printing ABS it's best to keep the airflow to an extreme minimum in the build area to prevent this. ABS prints best in dead-air or a vacuum. You'll notice most of the professional (patented) printers are fully-enclosed.

That said, I have my fans flipped for printing PLA with custom cooling ducts.. so they blow air. This setup would normally create a much worse issue when switching to ABS, so I opt to snap-on another custom set of ventilation ducts I created (a simple box-shaped air-scoop with no roof) to direct the fan air up and out of the build area.

Bearing your exact setup in mind, your aim is to reduce the air currents @ their sources &/or your build area to achieve optimal results. Best of luck!

Nice! A good marriage of form and function.
