I purchased an Elegoo Mars for this project.

I have been experimenting with mixtures of a base black anycubic resin and Siraya Tech's Blu resin, which is a much tougher resin for functional parts.

I have come close to figuring out a solution I am happy with through experimentation, but I have two main issues I'm running up against:

1) Parts of my edges are not forming correctly and so the edges don't have the sharp clean lines I'm looking for. I have been watching videos on manually adding supports and I think that's my answer. I'm not even really overly concerned with that, should be an easy one to solve with a bit more experimenting.

2) When I test fit parts, they work beautifully. However, what I have observed after many test fits is that the material is kind of wearing a bit and leaving a chalky residue. I'm not overly concerned about this for myself, but if I do a larger run of these for the community, I want to provide a product that looks good and functions properly. I think I wouldn't be overly impressed if I bought a cable from someone and it started looking chalky after light use. This one is really bothering me and I'm not sure there's going to be a resin solution to the problem.

I'm starting to think maybe using the resin for the casing after I get that dialed in and then looking toward a carbon fiber material like you use in your patch cable for the connectors themselves.

What type of material did you end up printing with? I couldn't get great prints with PLA, I bought a resin printer and am playing with that, but I'm not quite sure that's the way to go. I know Kevin uses a carbon fiber material but that material is $200/spool and requires it's own separate 3D printer from any normal printer you use, which is probably cost prohibitive for the average person.

Looks like you used a standard soldering iron and solder found in a hardware store. Usually on those you can't control the heat and they come with giant tips. Those are used to solder much bigger items than electronics.

If you want to learn to solder on electronics, you can. There are great online resources available, but soldering is one of those things where having the right equipment for the job makes so much of a difference.

If I understand correctly, with this latest design update, we can use the buttons on the cart to switch between games. Is that it?

If so, I am sold. I was holding out for the MultiBoy32, but if this will let me switch between ROMS without needing to plug the cart into a computer, I'm sold.

Also, if we don't need to plug the unit into a computer and the ROMs are stored on an SD card, what is the purpose of the USB connection?

At one point in the game the character that gives you the Virtual Boo says "We'll sell millions of these!"

I had a good chuckle at that.
