My SIO2PC Case

Recommended Posts

I bought an Atarimax SIO2PC a few months ago and searched all over for a case for it but I never could find one that fit. I tried making one out of Lego and it was sort of ok, but then I discovered that an Atari 2600 cartridge was almost exactly the right width and height for it. I dug out an old game that didn't work (Space Caverns by Apollo) and spent the entire morning hacking away at it with a Dremel. It took some work but I finally got it to fit and I have to say I'm very pleased with the result. Now I can keep it in my game case. ;-)

I have a homebuilt SIO2PC in a brown a8 Cartridge shell. Love seeing how people case their stuff.

Here's what I put my Sparkfun serial board SIO2PC device in.

 

I found an old, small (2.5" x 2" x 0.75") power supply at work with a case that comes apart and snaps back together.

 

Found some perfect size cable holders that lock to the openings of the case at work too.

Quite some time ago I 3D printed myself a case (I sanded it smooth, I have still not messed with the Acetone vapour method of smoothing out prints):

Here's the STL files if anyone is interested.

Thank you for sharing this, I can finally put a case on mine.  It's not safe in the open!

My current "case" : D I have all the parts and layout design to put it on a pcb board and a small case, but never did anything like that before so I've been dragging my feet for years.

I didn't see that they'd come out with cardboard filament.  I'll have to check whether my 3D printer supports it.

I never got around to adding openings for the LEDs, but it's kept the SIO2PC safe and dust free all these years.  Oh - I also never screwed it together, I use an elastic hair tie to keep it closed.  Only the best!

I kinda noticed the lack of LED holes after I downloaded it.  I found another one that does have the openings though.

You should 3D print a cardboard box to hold the PLA box...
