So this project has no worklog as it was completely off the cuff and went from concept to completion in a day and a half.

Introducing the PS2 Ultra Slim - the perfect choice for people that want their PS2 to do less.

Features:

-Almost half the width of a stock PS2 slim as it nixes the DVD drive and one of the USB ports.​
-Added mounting for an internal micro SD card card adapter for SD loading.​
-Improved cooling over stock with an additional intake and a guided exhaust.​
-Re-purposes the lid switch to become the power/reset switch.​
-Designed to not need supports to print the main case.​

A very basic how to build:

1) Requires a PS2 79k motherboard.​
2) Carefully trim off 2nd USB port so the motherboard is square, being careful to not cut the 5v reg for the USB port. Sand that edge so there are no shorts. Run a wire from the 2nd controller port 8.5v to the input leg of the 5v USB regulator to restore USB power.​
3) Cut both traces coming off the DVD lid switch and wire reset to one side of the switch and GND to the other side, this is now the power switch.​
4) (Optional) Trim down an SD to micro SD adapter so that it sits flush in the adapter mount and wire it up for SD loading. A little dab of hot glue to secure it in place.​


I have provided the STL files as well as some pre-configured 3MF's for multi colour printing of the top shell.

A quick update:

I'm currently working on improvements to the design by adding features such as a switch to enable/disable the SD card slot so to allow the 2nd memory card port to be functional again, and to have an optional shell that incorporates a rotatable PS2 logo.

I'm also renaming the project from PS2 Super Slim to PS2 Ultra Slim due to parts of the internet referring to the OEM 9k PS2 units as the Superslim (Even though they are the same size as regular slims dumb.gif)
