Hello,
I wonder if PLA is good enough for a portablized wii or if it is to brittle.
The 3d printer I got cannot print PETG out of the box, I can do the modifications, but if PLA is ok, it would be easier to print/sand too.

PLA works just fine for portable cases. I've used it for a majority of my portables.

if you're going to use 3D Printing for the internals or you have hot parts touching the printed parts I recommend using PETG or ABS as well as the PLA will deform over time if placed even under the sun or in a hot car, so I don't have to explain the effect of hot internals ;)
