Not really arcade, but here's the easy Gameboy style controller sleeve I made for my phone (Blu Life One X2).
The back would need to be resized to fit other phones.  If I did it over again, I'd make the bottom flat so it could stand on it's end.
Links to tinkercad files are in this post:http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,152133.msg1596901.html#msg1596901
Instructions are on the following posts.

I need these.  Button hole plugs that I have found in the usual places all seem to be the raised plugs.  These sit flush, which is dope.

Figure out a way to hid a thumb drive in those SNES Mini toppers so that the pirates can stylishly contain their ROMs.

Banding is part of it unfortunately.  I've found a can of filler primer works really well in terms of reducing it. 

HaRuMaN, do you have a link to the model file for those snes classic toppers?

I kind of agree, but these things aren't exactly sizable, you're just used to Haruman potato camera pictures.

That is a quibble I have with 3D printers. They are great for prototyping, but not so great for something meant to be displayed.

Well that's not quite right either. He could change the print resolution and have it take a redonkulous amount of time and it'd come out better. For its purpose that banding is fine.

Spoiler, those faux carts are for me and I might make em prettier but that zelda cart looks tits as is.

It just surprised me that people are willing to settle for "okay" on a piece meant for display when it is 3D printed. I am considering the level of craftsmanship and attention to detail that you guys put into your other work. I am not trying to be a jerk. I am trying to figure out how I feel about 3D printers. If you are happy with them then that is all that really matters. Saying they looked like ass was too harsh. It isn't my intent to crap on the work that Haruman does. It is more my thoughts on 3D printers in general.

I donít think they look completely like ass, but the expectation is that theyíre not injected molded either.

The satisfaction comes from holding something that started out as a concept or computer file in your hands that you made in the comfort of your own home.

By the way, up until I got a 3-D printer, I felt exactly the way that you did. But being able to design and then physically create something touches a creative nerve in me that I donít think I realized it would.

Anyone of these printers can put out a perfect smooth model. And I am sure someone will post something.
In this hobby though I see most people printing parts that visuals dont really matter.

Like Yots said, its more of the craft that gets people going.

Yeah but it's mostly a speed vs finish time thing.  Usually it's much quicker to print it out at a higher speed and sand or fill the print than to print it smooth.

Did you mount that plate on top of the bowing one?

No I will end up drilling holes for the mount and the heated plate. Even when I put the Borosilicate glass it forms to it. Ive never ran into the issue this bad until this printer. That Casa de Yots print would be perfect for dual or triple color.

I never heat the bed hotter than 60 degrees, so hopefully I wonít see much warping.

I snapped a tooth off an encoder wheel last night and I'm too impatient to order a new one so I just made one to print out.  I just freehanded it in photoshop based upon a scan of the broken wheel, so it might not be precision centered, ect. but I printed it out, put it in my drill and it spins really nice so it can't be THAT off.  I've enclosed the source photshop document as well as the finished stl.

There are encoder wheel generator programs out there.
At least there used to be back when I was tinkering with homemade spinners.

They were meant to be printed on transparencies, but would probably be fairly easy to import to a 3D modeling program.

Cool idea but needing a power supply kills it.  I'm surprised that the Pi Zero can't be run off the HDMI port, to be honest.

I think it would make more sense to do that with a snes controller tbh.  Not enough buttons for many games.  Clever idea though.

Only the entire NES, Gameboy, and Gameboy Color library...

There are similar concept back plates on Thingiverse for SNES controllers as well.

Yeah but knocking it up to 6 buttons covers everything up to the n64 and most arcade games.  If you are happy with it that is all that matters. 

Printing out parts to do my entire 360 degree wheel rig from scratch with 3d printed parts.  Just drew up the wheel hub.... cura says 2 and a half hours and it usually takes longer than cura estimates.  Gotta do both bearing holders as well.  Ugh....

Anyway, it's a pretty good design I think.  It's for people wanting to shoehorn a 360 degree wheel into their traditional analog racing cabinet.  You need a wheel with one of those removable hubs and enough room to drill a 2.25 inch hole in your dash.  Except for the wheel itself it's about 10 dollars in parts, and all can be found at your local tractor supply.  I been using it during the testing phase of my racing rig an aside from the encoder wheel breaking (it was just hot glued in place) it's worked great. 

Assuming I get it working with the newly printed parts I'll post the whole thing as a kit.

Update:  Parts are coming along nicely!  It took 2 or 3 prototypes for the bearing hubs, but the one I just printed off is perfect.  I have to engineer a holder for the optic pcb and then it's done.  I've never engineered something this complicated from scratch before and I'm a bit over-excited.

Just made this.  It's a replacement back-plate for an OG NES controller that simplifies installing a Pi Zero.  It effectively makes your NES controller a Plug-n-Play console.  I've got NES and Gameboy/GBC games on it now.

Files at: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1635363

Great walkthrough on construction: https://howchoo.com/g/zdqxnzblmzm/gamepad-zero-a-raspberry-pi-retro-gaming-rig-in-an-nes-controller

Was just thinking I needed something like this for the bottom of a sega genesis cartridge as i'm putting an rpi zero in.
gonna have to settle with using my glue gun instead for the usb hub and other connections i want to put in there.

Cool idea but needing a power supply kills it.  I'm surprised that the Pi Zero can't be run off the HDMI port, to be honest.

I think hdmi only has 50ma on the 5v.
not enough to power much.

Won't it run via the USB port of the tv?

Depends on the port, but most supply enough current to do that.  My HDMI cord is 15' though, and longest USB cord I've got is only 6', so that plugs into the socket in my couch cup holder.

You know with fire stick and all these hdmi dongle devices being so popular along with the never ending train of Nintendo classic consoles, you'd think somebody would have made a long hdmi cable with a built in usb cable by now.  I thought I read somewhere that the next revision of hdmi is going to have a dc power line.

I haven't searched in a while, but I can't believe nobody has come out with a USB power supply that plugs inline between a standard C13/14 (tower PC style) power cable and inlet.  2 of the 4 TVs in my house use that connector for the cord and the wall warts can be a PITA when the outlet is on the wall behind the TV.  It would be a better solution for the streaming sticks.  Either that or a USB outlet on the TV with a decent amperage rating.

Pi zero can't really handle snes fx chip games so N64 is right out.

That encoder generator puts out an image.  You can import that into inkscape and turn it into a vector then run it through a small cnc machine.  I know this is the 3d printers page but i'm looking at the hobby cnc router/engravers on amazon right now.  I tried printing one of those encoders out and sandwiching it between two clear cd inserts for a spinner once.  It didn't work out that well.  If i had to do it  again, cutting out a proper one would be the way to go.  can anybody put the paperboy encoder discs on a flatbed scanner and pop the scans my way??
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!!!

Yeah... actually that's a good idea.  Let's start a repository on here of various encoder images.  I have some oddball ones lying around I'll scan.

if your scanning them, plopping a small 6" metric ruler beside it would be awesome for any minor scaling issues between graphics software.

 :bat :whap

^ what he said....

LOL
A 6" metric ruler makes more sense than a metric yardstick that probably wouldn't have fine enough markings to make an accurate measurement.   :duckhunt

ok so the 6" metric comment wasn't well thought out however, i was at work and have one of these on my desk.

I've got an omega race optical (I think), an imperial, a wico and maybe a couple of other odd ducks.  They are in parts piles somewhere, so it might be some time before I can scan them.

a scad file for generating optical encoder discs already exists.  havn't opened it yet since i have neither the dimensions of the 720 joystick discs, nor an a 720 joystick.

I just got an MP mini select fro christmas this year--printed two things and went and bought a Anet A8  :cheers: Love these things!

Anyways, I want to try out this project:

https://3dprint.com/81760/raspberry-pi-arcade-cabinet/

I haven't done anything with a raspberry pi yet so it will be an adventure.
its better to not post and be thought a fool, then to whip out your keyboard and remove all doubt...
