    Preview.png I can't technically call it "GCA SP mkII" since it's a Wii and not a Gamecube, but I think I will anyway since the only thing this Portable Wii will be doing is playing Gamecube games. Mostly Twin Snakes.

    This looks great! I can't wait for the final reveal.

    Also I cannot believe how accurate your profile picture is of @Aurelio when he's hungry for beef jerky.

    Seriously. Dead on. Almost creepy how accurate it is.

    I'm using AutoCAD 2016.

    Once I'm outta work I can give accurate dimensions. It is in between the size of a GBA SP, and a 3DS. It's thicker for sure, but not much I can do about that if I intend to include batteries.

    The standard "OMGWTF Tim" that almost everyone on here uses. I'm not man enough to try any of the others yet. Quick question: Can I remove this guy without too much hassle?

    If I can remove it, I can relocate my batteries and knock about 7-8mm off my overall thickness. I'm almost done with the modeling, one more test print and fitting ought to do it. If the removal or relocation of that little guy is even a tad difficult, I don't want to go through the trouble of reworking my model as well.

    That's the 1.8V regulator. You cannot remove it, unless you replace it with something else or relocate it (don't forget about R1 and R2).

    If you have room in your case for another PTH regulator, you can set it to 1.8v, wire it up to the 1.8v line, and use that instead of the LDO. It'll give you a TINY bit better battery life too :D

    Note that there's no way you'll be able to remove it unless you use hot air, that sucker requires a lot of heat to be removed.
