    I actually thought about that, but I am not familiar with designing them myself. So I scraped the idea, because it would consume too much time.

    Another small update:

    I designed some Gamecube-like buttons. They are 40% smaller than the orginals though. But still manageable :D. The size is similar to the DS-buttons. I printed them with a .25mm nozzle and they turned out great :)

    Still way to go .


    Edit: Interesting, how the nozzle diameter changes the overall quality of small prints O.O

    I'm actually using 123D Design. (Yeah I know, its old :P)

    The second test-print turned out very nice. Still many more things to do, but everything fits in place atm.

    (the ABXY buttons are not in this picture because I didn't want to glue them in place :D)

    Thank you for that compliment :)
    I will use the same 'glass' again, but this time I will use a protective layer on top of it. I was thinking about using real glass though, but it turns out to be a pain in the ass compared to the plastic one.

    Edit:
    Although it doesn't seem that way in the picture, the buttons fit nearly perfectly.

    (Yes, this does look crappy, but remember, it's just a test print :P)
    Still working on it (11pm already)

    Ok, last update for today. I need to sleep ._.

    If you have anything unclear, just ask. And if you think I made a mistake somewhere, you can tell me :).
    While there are still things missing, I am very happy with the progress. I will print the part of the D-Pad tomorrow, to test if everything fits together as planned.

    I was thinking about printing this thing in a semi-transparent color. Maybe blue:?:. But not sure what color the buttons should be. Of course the A and B will be in green and red though :D.

    Good night you awesome people! See you tomorrow (hopefully).

    I think I got all the ports in place (or did I forget one? xD). It is slowly coming to an end...
    What I added:
    - all the necessary ports (Micro-USB for power, Power button, volume control, USB stick... did I miss something? o.O)
    - air duct cover
    - hole in the back for the air duct
    - some roundings
    bild11.png bild12.png
    Still missing:

    - speakers
    - mountings for the screws
    - a fancy fan-cover
    - probably a lot of other things I didn't think about yet...

    This is gorgeous and all the more reason why I need to invest in a 3D printer.

    I made a print of the front over night. Sadly it didn't turn out great, but I was able to test most of the fittings. (Had bad bed adhesion...)
    Didn't want to keep the pictures from you though ;)

    That is incredible thin, while still having advanced cooling.
    Ganz geil! ;)

    Small update:

    7BA439CB-3DF8-4451-A7CA-EAB759BC75B9.png

    I tried different settings with the buttons. Personally I like them all. I think I will stick with the following:

    619CE305-9BD5-414F-B101-746D3665B020.png

    Of course they look awful on these pictures ._.'
    In real life they look much better. Nonetheless I will most likely sand them a little bit.

    Another small update:

    The before/after photos are night and day. I'm loving this project and how everything is coming together
