    Releasing all the model files for the G-Wii including compete SolidWorks assembly and STLs for 3D printing. It's a pretty easy build with plenty of room inside for spaghetti making it perfect for beginners. I've included two different variants of the front case depending on how your printer performs. I decided it was easier for me to print the case in full with supports, otherwise you can print it in 2 parts and glue it together.

    Designed around original GC buttons and joysticks.
    5" 4:3 screen. Looks amazing with the VGA patches! https://bitbuilt.net/forums/index.php?threads/wii-native-vga-version-1-2.2176/

    Lithium Ion Smart charger from batteryspace https://www.batteryspace.com/smartc...polymerrechargeablebatterypack--ullisted.aspx


    Hi All,
    The first shoulder button had a very small "sweet spot" where the double-tact mod could be properly actuated. I fine tuned the shoulder button model and now the "sweet spot" is much larger and consistent. I only modified it by .25-.5mm in a few dimensions so this problem will depend on your printer's accuracy but I have attached the new version incase anyone has any difficulty with the old one.

    they're most likely soft switches. You can get them on eBAY: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/182824128340

    How concerned should I be about the specifications of the batteries? (Protected or not, mah, etc.) Could you post a link to the batteries you used in this project?
