    That's the only problem I can see with owning a 3D printer. At first I'd be hung up on printing useless trinkets. Then once I try printing something like a case, I'd find something in the design I didn't like and end up with 5 scrapped prototypes. In the end I'd be too afraid of wasting filament that I'd never print anything ever again.

    The alright part about that is that filament is relatively cheap, so failures and scrapped parts aren't awful on your wallet

    That's right. Also the parts are rather lightweight. So these don't hurt my wallet that much :).
    And I like the feeling and looks of the parts getting better every print. But that may be just me. You sure could handle it different ;)

    Anyways. I printed the upper right controller part and it works like a charm! Will post pictures later though. I want to get the controller finished first.

    Greetings from your pal in Germany :D

    Yes, for now. I like this layout more. But I kept in mind to change the layout back to basic.

    That is awesome to hear ;)
    I got another small update. Sadly I don't have much time to work on the project atm...

    The left one is not sanded yet. I will probably do this at the weekend. On this foto they look different in size, but I promise they are exactly the same size :D

    I printed the front of the case with the carbon filament. Looks very good, although it is not so easy to capture it on a foto ._.
    (It is matt)

    And last but not least a small spoiler :D

    I will redo the frontglass... I am not happy with it. I know the case is not perfect, but all the bubbles on the screen are too much for my eyes :D

    I got a small update. I hope the name is ok, I don't want to "steal" it ._.

    (I think there are currently 3 people who want this name (different style). I don't want to piss people off, but for me it is not a big deal. Maybe you got a different opinion)

    You finished first. I don't think anyone really cares if a name is shared anyways.

    But if anyone else tries to build a WaluWiigi I will end you.

    Update for today.
    The Case is now complete. I started to assemble all the necessary parts. But I did not screw the black parts together, so there is still a gap. And I couldn't avoid using some hot glue on this thing ._.
    Still missing the GC+. Will probably continue the work tomorrow ;)
    Enough talk, here are some pics:

    I can't come up with the words to describe how cool that looks. This is going excellently!

    Don't have much time atm... But I started soldering the battery and charging circuit. I also finished the frontglass. But it is not glued in yet.

    I am happy with the result. Only thing in my mind is the ratio of the image of the screen... I will have to live with it though :/
