RetroPie Zero NES Controller #3DThursday #3DPrinting

NewImage

From bfesser on Thingiverse:

—Notice: I’ve identified a minor issue with the design. Please don’t print this yet. Depending on the manufacturer of the 4021 DIP, it may interfere with the micro SD slot on the Pi, causing the case to not close fully. I’ll make the back a little deeper to fix it.—

This is my design of a replacement back for a Nintendo NES-004 Controller, for use with a Raspberry Pi Zero V1.2 or V1.3 running RetroPie. The Pi is held securely in place with four M2.5 x 5 mm plastic screws (McMaster-Carr 96817A890 or similar), and the case is held together the original screws (or, if you lose them, McMaster-Carr 96817A846). Print with support inside the recesses for the case screws. Screw holes in the printed part are dimensioned and spaced correctly, but should be reamed clean with a #45 drill for a precise fit.

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 code.org, 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.
