It came out in Australia the year I was born, and my first 6 years of life were filled with Atari and Sega, so I never owned one personally. My first Nintendo experience was with the SNES (and I’ve been a Nintendo junkie ever since), but I always regretted never owning Nintendo’s very first widely distributed console. With the announcement of the Classic Mini, I thought I would have to wait until November to get my hands on one.
Blogger daftmike has brought my dream of being a NES owner a little closer. The hardware hacker has managed to incorporate his Raspberry Pi with a 3D printed NES case. At 40% the original’s size, the whole console took around 6.5 hours to print (including the change in filaments for colors). He has even printed a tiny controller and functional game cartridges!!
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!
