Super Game PiSP #3DPrinting #RaspberrryPi


Carasibana just shared an amazing Raspberry Pi project on Thingiverse, we just couldn’t wait to share!


When I first saw the PiGRRL released by Adafruit I knew that I had to build one, but I wanted to tweak it a little, then part way through my design process Adafruit upped their game and released the Super Game Pi!

But I had a problem, it was too large for my Printrbot! D:
So I designed this, my version of the Super Game Pi , which I call the Super Game PiSP, because I based the basic shape off of the PSP.

I had a few things in mind making it, namely:

It had to print on my Printrbot Simple Metal ( ~ 150mm ^3 volume )
I wanted to reduce the visibility of screws in the design ( my component mounting screws are internal )
I wanted a more rounded design
I wanted the battery to be internal
I wanted to use the Pi B+ ( and now it can use the Pi 2 B ! 😀 )
I wanted to use tac buttons , and not have to cut up a game controller PCB
So with those in mind I created this!

The electronics and setup are nearly identical to the guide for the Super Game Pi , except I used a Pi B+ , and tac switches instead of a hacked up game pad

I’ll post more detailed information later, but I want to get this released before I head to work!

Inspired by, but not directly derived from the Super Game Pi ( used it as reference for quite a few measurements )

We’re incredibly chuffed to see Carasibana’s Raspbbery Pi project – This is exactly the type of stuff we love to see! We release ALL of our designs with the intention that it will be customized. We always encourage you to customize it and make it yours. Making this project, specially to print on the Printrbot simple metal is a challenging problem that was seized and achieved by working within constrains and limitations. Very excellent work Carasibana. Thank you so much for being awesome!

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!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
