OK, here's the one I built with a more regular case. Quite nice. Easier to build and cheaper.

Iíll post this question for @mellott124 here in case it is of general interest to folks that have these.

Regarding the external power supply, if I understood it correctly, you have said that you donít personally use one and one may not be required if the PC USBs supply enough power. So, how would you know if you needed to use a power supply? Random shutdowns/reboots of the programmer, I would presume? If so, is there any danger of corrupting anything with the programmer or carts if it shuts down midstream?

Iíd rather not bother with it if I donít need one, but if there is some consequence to be avoided Iíd rather be safe than sorry.

Brownout is what happens. What happens during a brownout is undefined so hard to say what would happen. Most desktop USB ports should be fine. Any USB 3.0 is probably fine. If you see odd behavior you canít explain them plug in the supply. Iíve never had an issue on my machines. The DC Jack is there as a backup. May never be an issue.

Here's a VB cart programmer build overview. Similar to what I did for the link cable. It's not complete as I'm missing some pictures but you get the overall point. I'll update in the future if the opportunity ever arises.

Also excuse any grammar and typos at this point. It's middle of the night and I'll admit I haven't done all the proof reading I should at this point. Going to go back to sleep first. :-)

Thanks! Glad you like it.

I also updated this page with the regular enclosure design files that can be 3D printed. Also included the hex file at the end to program the atmega2560. So if people follow this page carefully, they can build their own. Have fun!

All,

I was lucky enough to get one of the Cart Programmers. Originally, I had it sitting on a shelf, but decided that it deserved better :)

I was at Fry's on the weekend and found a case that I thought would be fitting for it.

Here is the result.

Thoughts?

Love the case Barry! It deserves something like that.
