I designed this as intemediate project for my bar-top arcade. However it turned out much more work than I expected. So I like to share for you to learn and remix.
I used Blender for that, mostly because I am fluent with it and wanted to try if I can and wether I would hit some roadblocks. It was close 🙂
WORK IN PROGRESS! Please don’t complain!
- The construction uses MANY Boolean Modifiers. On slow machines it can take some time to re-calculate.
- Work in progress! There are issues, especially on the game pad holder, check twice with your game pad
- You will need most likely have to edit something depending on the actual hardware you use (starting at switches, connectors etc.)
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!
