Holy cow, is that "blue transparent?" I've gotta get me some!
Yes it is
It's called HD-glass. But it is not as strong as normal PLA, so I've combined it with carbon-PLA on the backside. Otherwise the portable would be too soft and too easy to bend/flex.
So... The front is nearly finished. Put the controls in and everything fits perfectly .
I had to sand the front down quite a bit. But as a result it is now almost perfectly smooth and shiny (second picture).
I am happy with it.
Thank you guys for your help and advice for the print.
Damn.. That is beautiful! So shiny, on the second pic it doesn't even look 3D printed
Ok, last update for today. The printer is still working, so I might as well take the test of the day off
(The mainboard is an old one)
Ok, one more
This thing is nuts. Excellent work so far
Ok guys, first thing when making a portable? Make a plan what you want it to have... If not, or if sloppy, you might forget some crucial parts in your finished case
I forgot the headphone jack... Luckily it was rather easy to drill a hole inside the bottom part... (The right one)
It turned out good, but I don't deserve it
Nonetheless, I started soldering, but the headphone jack took me some time... So I made few progress.
The shoulder buttons turned out very nice. Not too clicky, not too squishy.
I printed the X, Y and start buttons in white, so they match the shoulder buttons. (No pic though)
Enough for today. I'm beat
Man it looks fantastic! The inside is so clean! Love it!
I finally cut out the mainboard
And a close up of the new white buttons:
And yes, it appears I could have placed the buttons a tiny little bit more to the right
I haven’t been following this thread like I should be. Love how well this is coming together! Your prints (minus the issues you ran into) look incredible, esp in that clear blue.
Loving the screen size on this thin boy!
What a weekend... Only got few things done... But still. Here's some update:
I had to stop working in the middle of the process... Need to sleep
Hopefully I can test these whole thing tomorrow.
The screen does not light up, I'll have to investigate this issue tomorrow. I measured a voltage of 4.7v on the display board. Should be enough, what do you think?
Maybe the flat cable is just loose somewhere.
Sadly I can not work on it as much as I want atm :/
Have you tried connecting the Screen directly to the screen board?
and yeh connecting it to the wii to check? or something else?
Yeah, I used the screen before. And it worked.
And now I got it working again
It was the flat cable. Well, it is giving me a black screen though.
Edit: I think it might just be the input settings of the screen. I used it in AV mode last time. But I'm at work now
I really like your power wires! Also, is that black magnet wire?! looks pretty dope
Thank you. Yes, it is black magnet wire. Really neat
Got it working
The flat cable was faulty... One pin loosened up a bit.
is this what love feels like?
