DIY Retro 8-Bit MOS 6502 CPU #3DThursday #3DPrinting

6502 3d printed case

Dirk Grappendorf shares:

I finally finished my 6502 CPU retro computer system.



The 8-bit MOS 6502 CPU was used in many popular home computers of the 1970s and 1980s like the Commodore 64 or the Apple II.

This project started with some basic circuit designs on a breadboard, went on with the production of a PCB, the development of firmware software, and finally finished with a custom designed 3D printed case.

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!
