This is my nano arcade cabinet for raspberry Pi1 using Raspicade distro. It is based on the Cupcade project but has been heavily modified to be printable easily on a Printrbot simple metal 3D printer. More info on http://www.gamoover.net/Forums/index.php?topic=32838.0

Hi, great design! I want to modify a few pieces slightly (e.g. the display bezel as I'm using a different size LCD panel), can you make the mesh files available? I have not found a way to import .stl into 123D and be able to modify? Thanks, David

What Rasp Pi distro are you using? can you post a link to the SD card image ? I have a cupcade and I think I would like to use the distro that you are doing in the demo video.. Btw I think your design is actually probably a lot nicer than the cupcade .. that case was a PIA to assemble (blue painters tape helped) but I really like the idea of a printable case for it..

I used a modified version of my raspicade distro http://sourceforge.net/projects/raspicade/ to get it work with the piTFT 2"8 screen. I use either a simple card based on a mcp 23017 to get all the buttons ont a Pi1 B512 with Pikeyd : Pi GPIO keyboard daemon i2c MCP23017 see http://atmjoy.com/pikeyd-pi-gpio-keyboard-daemon-i2c-mcp3017/.
I did not release this version of raspicade, but I can make a copy of my SD and put it somewhere for you. I have to write the "HowTo" either.

That would be fantastic if you dont mind making an image of your SD card .. I would love to play around with it .. thank you..

It doesn't appear that you use the screw holes in the sidewalls as was originally used for the laser cut parts from the cupcade kit. Why have the screw holes at all? In a similar line of thinking, I assume this is friction fit/glued together, wouldn't it also be better to have the sidewall slots (for the mating parts) to just be recessed instead of all the way through? That would give you a much cleaner look without all the holes.

Your're completly right, when I finished the nano cab these thaughts came to me too ;). I'm actually working on the V2, without holes on the sides. The friction itself is sufficient to maintain the whole cabinet ;). I kept the holes because I managed to put wood screw to fix the parts together. Wait for the V2...

Am I missing something; there doesn't seem to be a back for this and I am not sure how the speakers fit.
I count two pieces missing.
Back and part under front joystick area. (only one part is there)
