Interesting... I got myself suckered in to a 3D printer project on Kickstarter that looks to be delivering by the end of year if no other hiccups occur. I'm curious to see how well it handles (or doesn't handle) smooth surfaces for something like this. It's admittedly kind of insane to me that the materials alone for that slick blue number are $8, but I'm sure material costs will also start to decrease as the medium becomes more common.

Levine91 contacted me over at Atari Age to discuss if I could have the cartridge shells re-made. Its something I am pretty familiar with and should be able to accomplish. I will keep you all informed about my progress. Won't be until likely January that they would be done.


Off topic but just wanna say thank you for damn near always having what I need in your online store. I've sent countless people your way and spent even more there lol.

Sorry bit late in getting to edit my model.

In reading this I saw the screw hole depth being too short and you can see the screw pushing material out in assembly photo, I have made this hole 0.5mm deeper, -rev1 STL model here in case its of use.

BTW these clear ones look good, red would be great.

Unfortunately due to circumstances outside my control this project cannot move forward at this time. I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused. I wish the community well and hope you are able to find a good source of these.

I have an updated FormLabs print coming. And when I asked about red translucent prints they said they have new materials and colors coming in the new year.
