Slightly larger, different model from what opt2not is asking for. Looking at the one he asked for seems like a post print nightmare.


if it were to be printed in half or one piece I think so.
tree supports aren't too bad though.
You will be able to get him a much nicer print for sure.

i'm going to clean that crappy yellow filament out of my extruder teeth and give it a shot at a smaller size like 3 1/2 inches long.
also, I just upgraded my PC from 8gb to 16gb and yeah, stuff slices so much faster.

That little tank is amazing. The rifling inside the main cannon, the individual barrels of the machine guns, wow.

LOL!
20hrs on mine at .16 mm layer height at default size.
each section is taking 3.5 hrs min. for me.

So this came out better than expected.
Too bad I printed it with supports on the bottom that wonít fricken come off.
Reprinting upside down with tree supports.
Generating then in meshmixer took about 45 mins.
Then slicing it in Slic3r took almost an hr.
Had to slow down support speed to 30 mm so they donít get knocked over.

I found some models for modding an N64 case with usb front connectors, feet, switch ect and a tray for the rpi4.
I didn't have an n64 case and busted n64's are $25 on ebay. I call that plan B.
however I had already bought that lime green spool for $12 shipped on sale and the kids loved the color so i found an n64 model and printing that.
it isn't 100% accurate (off a few mm) so i need to do some adjustments on the fitted parts.

Success!
though i'm wearing gloves for removing supports from the top piece.
Had to use a needle nose and channel locks to remove them and that plastic is sharp.
chewed up my fingers.

Think i'll start a project thread now.

Here's a modded version of the base for anyone wanting one without the button hole.
- The button is for the Rhea or Phoebe Saturn Optical Drive Emulators, not the Fenrir.

OpenSCAD code for the remix:
Code: [Select]
// Saturn Fenrir ODE (Optical Drive Emulator) Base

// Plugs unnecessary button hole in original base.

// Remix of https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3927079 by Zitruskeks

/////////////////////////////
// Define variables
/////////////////////////////
basethick = 6.4;

// Number of fragments (polygon sides) used to render a full circle.
    $fn = 180; // Default = 180  Typical range = 6 - 360
    // 6 will render a circular hole as a hexagon, 8 will render a circular hole as an octagon.
    // Lower the number for faster rendering, raise the number for smoother rendering.

/////////////////////////////
//  Make the part
/////////////////////////////

// Import .stl
import("Base.stl"); // The .stl filename is case sensitive and the file must be in same folder as this OpenSCAD file

color("gray")
translate([19.6, -28, basethick/2])
cylinder(basethick,d=10.2,center=true); // Plug the button hole

Ah, so it is using one of those SD cables with the screw mounts.  Glad I didnít order one just yet, though i suspect if you crack open the plastic case found on some of them, you find the screw mount version inside.

Anyway, purpose of this is to move the SD card slot to a more reasonable position, reduce wear and tear on the optical drive emulator micro sd port, and plug up the gaping hole left when you remove the CD drive.

The guy that posted the model on Thingiverse described the extender he used as "a 25cm one" -- no links or pics.   ::)

The screw holes in the base align with screw holes in the edges of the cover. (34mm center-to-center)

The hollow under the cover is 30mm wide x 37mm deep x 4mm tall.

I have an SD card extender like the pic below, but the plastic case makes it too tall to work with the cover.   :banghead:
- Looks like the cover was designed for a low-profile regular-size SD card holder.
- Not sure if he used something like this one that has no case or decased one like mine.   :dunno



If you can't find an extender that works with the cover dimensions listed above, it shouldn't be too hard to make a custom cover.

I'm pretty sure on the dreamcast versions of these prints you take the cover off the extender but I'm not 100% sure.

Since the SD card extender I mentioned above is too big to fit without decasing, here's a cover for MicroSD card extenders like this one (7.5") or this one. (19")



The .zip file contains the STL file and the OpenSCAD, DXF, logo image, and Inkscape files along with directions on how to vectorize a logo for OpenSCAD if you want to customize yours.

The OpenSCAD file is fully commented and parametric so you can easily customize the cover by changing the associated variable(s) -- no programming ability needed.   ;D

Print the cover with the small, flat back side down with no supports. (i.e. rotate -90 degrees on the X-axis.)

This cover is about 3mm taller than the original, but it should still fit inside with the CD lid closed.

Code: [Select]
// Saturn Fenrir ODE (Optical Drive Emulator) Micro SD Extender Cover

// Original cover hollow was the wrong size for many commonly available extenders.

// This remake cover is designed to work with the ODE base from https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3927079 by Zitruskeks

// Logo exported from Inkscape to .dxf file using https://github.com/brad/Inkscape-OpenSCAD-DXF-Export

/////////////////////////////
// Define variables
/////////////////////////////
CoverX = 38.4; // Overall width of the case

CoverY = 40.7; // Overall depth of the case

CoverZ = 9; // Overall height of the case

ScrewHoleOffset = 21; // Distance from back of case to center of screw holes

ScrewHoleWidth = 34; // Center-to-center distance between holes

ScrewHoleDia = 2.5; // Screw hole diameter

CaseX = 25; // Overall width of the extender case

CaseY = 33; // Overall depth of the extender case

CaseZ = 7.4; // Overall Height of the extender case

CornerDia = 6; // Corner diameter on the extender case

CaseOffset = 0.1; // Distance the extender case protrudes beyond the cover

RibbonWidth = 21; // Ribbon cable width

RibbonDepth = 6; // Y-axis distance to allow ribbon cable to bend

LogoX = 32.15; //Logo X-axis size

LogoY = 21.7; //Logo Y-axis size

LogoDepth = 0.5; // Depth of the logo

CurveDia = 40; // Diameter of the front curve

CurveOffset = 32.5; // Distance past the front edge of the cover to place the front curve cylinder

// Number of fragments (polygon sides) used to render a full circle.
    $fn = 180; // Default = 180  Typical range = 6 - 360
    // 6 will render a circular hole as a hexagon, 8 will render a circular hole as an octagon.
