Re: Case for the Megacart

Well, after 5 hours of printing, the base part completely failed :-D

I'll try again on Sunday I guess :-D

Re: Case for the Megacart

Well the fit is good! It probably needs another mounting screw near the front, or some other way of holding the shell together...

I'll print the back shell tomorrow then try assembling to see how well it holds together...

Re: Case for the Megacart

Well caught and you are quite correct!

OK I'll drop them overall to 63. Won't be as realistic, but I am sure we'll all live :-D

Re: Case for the Megacart

I've uploaded a version with the base part corrected for the overlap.
@Scouter3D, if you can measure how wide your cartridge came out, I can work out the scaling factor.

Re: Case for the Megacart

What's really odd is I just doublechecked my measurements against a Crazy Chicky cartridge and they're exactly right!. I wonder if it's an artifact of your printer? I've optimised for a Resin printer, so no "shrinkage". I'll parameterise width so that way you'll be able to adjust the width with a si...

Re: Case for the Megacart

Thanks for that!
I'll load up the design and have another look shortly.
I know exactly what I did wrong in the lower bit there now you pointed it out :-D
As for the scaling, I'll have another look. No idea what went wrong there :-D

Re: Replacement Keyboard Project Update

Case for the Megacart

Hey all, There's been some demand for a case for the MegaCart, so I fired up OpenSCAD and gave it a go. This case is, as yet, untested. I do have a 3D Printer now, but it's going to take 2 DAYS to print these and I figured some of you might want to start playing around with it now. Y'know. Kick the ...
