Hey there, if you are interested in having a case for the TinyDuino Game Kit - I am working on something, here's the video:

Would you mind sharing the 3D print files for this? I would love to have a similar case, even if it needed some work.

You mean having the STL files? I am working with Cinema 4d, which isn't a CAD software but an editor for rendering purposes, hence it's a bit clunky from time to time.

I have made changes by now and ordered a new version. It's annoying me that I still have no 3d printer myself since it costs 30 each time I order it. Of course the delivered quality exceeds private 3d printers in detail by far... therefore I am also unsure how useful the design would be for you.

Yes, any format would actually work, as they can be converted. STL does help but I can work with others.

I have access to high end 3D printing locally, so it would be quite helpful rather than starting from scratch. I also think the rest of the community would appreciate the contribution.

I would actually recommend you make a submission to https://www.thingiverse.com/

I've uploaded the files to my blog: http://tinyduinogames.de/pages/Case/. I have ordered the version with the changes (not sure if they turn out to work) to see if they work. I should have it at the end of next week. It's really annoying without access to a printer.

Do you have any maker spaces in your area? We have a couple of them here in Seattle and that is who i typically send 3D print jobs to. I can't say the price is much cheaper, but at least the results are fast.

Not that I am aware of. I asked a bit around but no one turned out to have one. I would probably need to search in a maker forum or something ...

This is great - can't wait to see how it turns out!

Awesome, I came here looking for this info.

I'll see how well (or not) it prints on my Micro 3D.

If you need or want new designs tested, just let me know I can do a quick print and send you pictures or even completed prints if you want.

You have a micro from m3d? I have paid last week the shipping costs. No idea when I'll have it. I guess that the design is too filigrane and must be reworked. And I am about to receive my 3d print from shapeways in a few days (hopefully).

My order has arrived and I have assembled it. It's not yet fully working as expected, but the back buttons and the power switch are now working reliably. Though one back button didn't work shortly and I couldn't find out why - after reassembly, it was OK again... I am considering a 3rd version to dent out these issues as well. It's a bit annoying since it costs 30 to make a try, but it's fun at least to see something working.

The screen buttons aren't working so well - the bottom ones are OK but I need to redo the button sizes again. The upper buttons on the screen aren't going to work that easily though. The problem simply is that the joysticks would collide with any button mechanic. So I probably will only provide the bottom buttons in the final version.

Great progress!

Can't seem to find where to download them at. Really looking forward to printing this.

Can you send me a copy of the files and I'll try printing them?

Sorry, seems I overlooked what was going on - no really, the files are linked on that page here: http://tinyduinogames.de/pages/Case/ - it's the "Version 0.2" text that's the link (I realize now that this is suboptimally presented ...)
