PiGRRL Raspberry Pi Gameboy #3DPrinting #3DThursday

Celebrate the 20th anniversary of that classic gaming device by building your own with 3D printing and DIY electronics from adafruit.

The 3D printed enclosure will house all the components and you can print it in your favorite color.

We’ll hack this classic gaming controller and reuse the printed circuit board, buttons and elastomer gaskets.

Find out how to assemble and program this project by checking out the guide on The Adafruit Learning System.

What classic retro game will get you playing on the go? let us know in the comments below!

Download available on Thingiverse and 123D Design.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!

  1. Do you know if this build will work with Retropie rather than cupcake/mame? I am planning on assembling this soon and want to have an emulator that supports more gaming systems (snes, nes, gameboy) one of my concerns is if the wired in controller will work with Retropie.

    Thanks!
