THE!CART SHELL - New 3D Printed Shell for THE!CART

Recommended Posts

Today I recorded the long pending how-to video to show how easily you can put the original The!Cart PCB into the 3D printed shell.
To keep the shell project separate from the The!Cart and the The!Cart Studio, I created this separate thread.
The download of the latest 3D model files is available on my web site.

Bernhard would also print individual shells on request. Price would be around 15 EUR, I think. If you are interested, please send PM to biobern.

 

Note:
This this is about the original The!Cart PCB version 1 and not about the upcoming The!Cart PCB Version 2.

The planned run of The!Cart PCB Version 2 will have a smaller PCB and a smaller shell, too.

And I will be ordering at least 2 of "The!Cart PCB Version 2" when available.

I can not brag about "The!Cart" and software enough. It is a must have.

I am very interested in batch 2 too...

 

What other differences will there be?

 

Will it have GOLDEN PLATED contacts?

 

I'm very interested!

Hmmm,

 

do other Atari cart pcb`s fit into this case (assuming the case has no holes at the front and at the top)...?

I mean cart pcb`s from Atari 800/XL carts or pcb`s from Atari XE Taiwan carts or pcb`s from Atari XE Hong Kong carts ?

 

Or does Bernhard/biobern produce extra cases for these old(er) Atari pcb`s ?

I did not try, but theoretically, everything should fit "somehow". There are no internal holes for screws and so on, so you would have to fix the circuit board "somehow". The holes for the LEDs and the reset button are very the!cart-style.

I'm printing out this updates case now. Bottom should be done in 20 minutes or so. I'll post pictures provided everything works out.

Back printed out great. Like always I decided to make a small tweak which totally screwed the front. I'm heading down to make some adjustments and try a second attempt.

You're welcome. It took a while for me to realize the "b" is lowercase and this is probably cheap 1MB (E)PROM cart, right?

jajajajajaja ok, if it is a cheap EPROM M27C4001 technically it is 4 Mbit ( 512Kb x 8 )
