Tested this case in the Atari 800 and it's too tight. Guess it has the same issue as the 1200XL. I'm sure the revised cart will fit it.

Hello again.

 

Here are photos of the revised Atari Ultimate cartridge.  It has been test fit in all of the Atari 8-bit machines.  Here are some photos of the test, and a nice light blue finished product with the cartridge installed in it.

This looks cool.  I'll probably get one when (if) the 2nd run goes through.

I've been recently asked by people here, and on the Commodore side of my business for higher resolution / smoother finish prints.  I've been doing some testing, and have found that 100 microns is viable.

 

As such, I've decided to offer prints at 100 micron resolution as an upgrade over the standard print resolution of 200 microns.  

 

You'll currently find that option available on the Atari Ultimate 1200 cartridge at present on the shop.  If there's another model that you'd like at the higher resolution and the option isn't available, please let me know and I'll make the adjustment to the shop.

 

I do however have to charge an additional small surcharge on models for the higher resolution as it does double the print time, thus consuming more power to generate the model.

 

Thomas

 

Good to hear it...I'll most likely order the higher resolution print.  Still trying to decide on which color, though I think I'm down to the grey or translucent blue.

 

Do you have any examples of your printed items with the orange filament?

My original Ultimate is in a hacked XE cart case and it looks "ok" apart from the hole on the back. I'm seriously contemplating one of these

Fits in the Atari 800 too and you can close the door.

I am so jealous of that 3D printer!  My little DaVinci 1.0 even running repetier 0.92 is just no match!

Finally had some time to assemble my Ultimate SD cart and house it in one of these COREi64's excellent cartridge housings. I love it!....

I like the orange. That looks close to O.S.S. orange.

The color varies between tomato red and orange depending on the light source. I am looking at it right now under cool white LED lighting and it appears more orange than red. But in any case it goes well with both XL and XE cases. One thing i noticed with this cartridge though is the fact that the front side isn't suitable for labeling, however in this particular case it needs no identification anyway, there is no mistaking it for anything else  :)

Thanks for the positive comments on the case.  Glad you guys are enjoying it.  It does look nice in your machines.

 

And yes, I use Lulzbot TAZ5 printers.  The photo in the tread above is exactly what they look like!

I'd love to pick one of these up, but I have the horizontal connector.. Any options here?

I would just need to borrow one of these boards for a short while, and I could adapt my design.

 

Same deal applies, if you loan me your board, you get the device sent back to you in a case in the color of your choice.

 

If that appeals to you, let me know.

Thanks to Lil Alien's loan of his cartridge board, I've completed work on the case for the horizontal connector case.

 

This design will work on ALL Atari 8-bit computers, including the 1200.

This is the board that it's modeled after:

And here is a side by side comparison of the two versions:

Looks gorgeous.  I've given up on getting a decent print (or case design) from my piece of shit DaVinci 1.0.  I put Repetier firmware 0.92 on it some months back.  Anyhow - don't mean to hijack the thread.  Ordering one of your cases for my rev 1.1 cart this evening.

Quadrunner:  Thanks for the compliment.  I presume this one is yours?
