Memory Expansion Case

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Quite a while ago I designed a 3D-printable case for the 32KB memory expansion card.

 

The case consists of two sides that snap together after the card is screwed into the case with (iirc) 12 mm M2 screws. There are also printable back plates that can be snapped in behind the cutouts if you want the logo to appear a different color / don't want to see the board inside.

 

It looks cooler printed in a silver / metal PLA, but alas my silver PLA is really poor and has integrity issues, so here's a white one:

This fits the 32 KB expansion board I bought from The Brewing Academy here, but it's also available from Arcade Shopper here. Make sure your card matches the one shown in the picture before you try to print this.

 

I realize there is another case for these that is sold and is arguably cooler looking than this one, but this one is free if you have a 3D printer. I didn't realize the other case existed when I made this a year or two ago. 😑

 

The case STL files can be downloaded at Thingiverse.

This should also fit the Sams card I sell as well

These won't fit memory + TIPI will they?
Looks good though, nice job on designing this!
Nope just memory..

I have a sidecar case designed by Jedimatt42 that does both in my store or if you have your own printer it's in his git

Very nice.  I was just about to design and print one of these myself.  You have saved me some design work.  Much appreciated!
