To celebrate the exciting launch of the OUYA open gaming console, the MakerBot Design Team turned the original OUYA enclosure design files into an enclosure that will print well on the MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer. ThereÃ¢â¬â¢s a case, a lid, and a spring-loaded button.
Now what?! Download the .stl files from this page, then print and assemble them according to the instructions below. These are the settings our designers have come up with, but the files are in your hands now.
OUYA wants you to have open access to your console, and so do we. You can choose to try out some other settings, and you can even pull the .stl file into your preferred 3D design software and add features. If you want to go further with the design, weÃ¢â¬â¢ve included the .3dm file, too.

All parts were designed and tested using MakerBot PLA Filament, but may print successfully using ABS.
Case, Lid, & Spring
Shells: 1 shell (total; so 0 extra shells)
Layer height resolution: 0.20-0.25 mm
Button (use a translucent color)
Shells: 50 (fifty!)
Layer height resolution: 0.3 mm. Turn the active cooling fan ON.
Slot the Button into the spring from the smooth side (the side that printed against the build plate), then give the button a quarter turn to lock it in place.
Slot the long spring arm into the lid (it will only fit one way) and gently work the other two spring arms into their slots. Make sure you don't bend the spring too far in any direction. Make sure the button can move freely and isn't catching anywhere.
Slot the OUYA hardware into the printed case.
Align the two forked guides on the inside of the lid with the OUYA board and press the lid onto the case. It should seat with a satisfying snap.
