2 Nostalgia nerd video featuring the cart
The super nintendo classic mini is awesome ... But there's something missing. It doesn't quite look right. So lets fix that :D
The week before the snes mini was released I made this snes mini cartridge but until it arrived on Friday 29th september I couldnt get the measurments of the cart exact until I had mine in hand.
I decided to make a detailed 2 part mini snes cart (second half optional just to make it complete) one half sits on the snes mini and when your not using it just clip the 2 halfs together to make a full mini cart, I might use magnets to hold it in place later but for now a bit of blue tack works fine.
With it been just half a cartridge you dont have to open up or damage your lovely snes mini :D
printed on fine settings with 40% infil, 8 layer brim and support to be on the safe side as there are a couple of small holes.
I bought a 10mtr sample of premium light grey filament from 3d filaprint, they supply awesome samples that you can test before you commit to buying a full reel, the 10 mtrs was just enough to make the cartridge as it used just over 8mtrs.
FilaPrint Light Grey Premium PLA 10 mtr sample £2.89 (1/10/17) http://shop.3dfilaprint.com/filaprint...
FilaPrint Light Grey Premium PLA Full reel £20.95 (1/10/17) http://shop.3dfilaprint.com/filaprint... The premium filament printed amazing, as a result im going to be buying a full reel of it.
printed in pla with a brim, I used supports as there is a little overhang, but may not be needed (you would have to try) can be printed solid or holllow zero infil.
