    Had Shank, JacksonS, and Downing over for a few days last month. Shank, Jackson, and I each made a WiiBoy rev3 :D

    The shoulder, start, and power buttons were resin casted. The new version uses the Switch Joysticks.

    This is an amazing build! Are there any print files to follow? I would really like to try making one of these. (If i'm being honest, this is my first time trying anything like this, so i'm like rookie x10, but finally having access to some 3D printers at my college, I wanted to at least give it a shot.) If not, Are they for sale? This is a must-have.

    I am not releasing the files for this. We will however be offering Wiiboy DIY kit for sale eventually. Checkout the GWii or Louii cases, they are open source.

    You should try and cast the two parts of the shell, a clear epoxy polished shell would be rad and maybe even more durable :)

    Gman brought a few Wiiboy kits for people to assemble at MGC, so here's mine:

    20191019_205518.jpg 20191021_195031.jpg
    Case was printed on this super fancy 3D printer my campus has. Looks pretty sick but unfortunately it's pretty brittle, screwposts didn't hold up too well.

    The kits are going to be pretty neat, this was a super fun build. A big thanks to Gman for letting me do this!

    There will be pads for audio on the other side of the board.
