im going to move this out of the  astrocart thread 

 

I have been working on finishing / refining  the astrocade cart found here

https://www.thingive...om/thing:173532

 

 

 

I have already   modified it to fit the ultimulti cart  (simply cut a hole in it lol)

 

but id also like to make it look a bit more like the real deal

 

 

the printable cart is missing the recess for the  cart label  and is  a bit flimsy  on the top and bottom

 

I dug out my mic and indeed I do have a bit of workable  thickness available

looks like the original is around 12.27mm

and the printed one is around 11.98mm

How long does it take to print one of these cartridge shells (both the top and the bottom)?

depends on the printer I use and the   resolution I print it at   but the ones in the pics printed at fine  resolution   took  1 hour 45 mins per side  but I have  6 printers so can print at the same time

Wait, it takes about 3 1/2 hours to create one complete Astrocade cartridge shell?  Even with six printers going, that's a long time to print shells.  How much are these printers... and why do you have six of them?!?

lol that's why I have six (and plan on at leas 3 more ) the cart shell is a fast print 

a lot of the  stuff I print takes upwards of 12-24 hours to print per part   and  require multiple parts  

 

my printers start at around 150$ for the small ones and up to 300$ for the bigger ones  (new printers are going to cost more like 500-800  since im going big ,ike print a helmet that fits on my head big )

 

 

right now I have 1 that supports print size of 100x100x120 mm

3 that print  up to  120x120x120mm

and 2 that do 220x220x240mm

 

and planning to buy  2 that do 300x300x400mm and 1 that will do 500x500x500mm

 

 

 

I bought my first one  around 2 months ago and went nuts from there

bought them  mostly for my train layout   but  its also handy to print things for our arcade/videogame store

and im the coolest dad  on the block printing my sons (and daughter ) cool cosplay stuff

 

 

my 3yr old thinks he has his own personal toy factory lol

 

here are some pics  sorry  everything is currently in a state of disarray  been working on some big projects
