Link to design file for case doesn't work. Can you attach a file, please?

Hi, there are a couple of things I would like to ask.

Could I still buy the design? I see that there is a new version on your website, and I was wondering if there was a different set of instructions for that(i.e. Bluetooth and WIFI integrated in)? The new version has a no need to change the Raspberry Pi anymore, does this mean that the USB that you take off can stay?

Can this be used with the Raspberry Pi 3?

Much sexier than my pi station, and smart use of the ATX RASPI board, wish I had thought of that when I built mine!

Very nice project, congratulations. Do you know a cheaper way to safely turn off the pi? The ATXRaspi is a good solution but a little bit pricy!

Try a pine 64 board they are 15 dollars if you want to make a playstation or playstation 2 rig maybe.

how does this do with Play station 1 games i see the version on your website is now sporting the Ras 3 any major improvements in games it couldnt run before?

Great tutorial, thanks for sahring this!

That the average budget you had for whole the set up?

1 reply

I designed this version with the money I earned with the 3d printed version. It took several attempts to get the case the way it is now. If you gather the components yourself you should be able to built one for about 150 euro.

where do you get the games, do you get them in win format or Linux.

You need to have ROMS of your favourite games. I can't help you with downloading them but you can do a simple google search ;-)

how to control the games, what kind of controller or do u use keyboard?

1 reply

You can use ALL USB game controllers or a (wireless) mouse and keyboard.
My favourite controller is the SNES controller. Thanks, D


The switch I use is the original VELLEMAN R1600B from Germany.
I have uses the Chinese (cheaper) versions but the nice thing of the Velleman switch is that the plastic body is transparent instead of grey plastic. You will see the whole switch light up beautifully! The R1600B switch therefore looks great in the transparent case. :-)

Profile pic on point! Good tutorial nonetheless!

what brand is your tools shown in the pics?

I mean the screwdriver set!!!

Hey Liuk89, I recently purchased the all-new pro tech toolkit from ifixit.com, definitely worth checking out as it contains an awesome screwdriver set as well!
