Adafruit’s DIY 3D Printed ‘Gamegirl’ Build

In order to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Gameboy, Adafruit has offered a how to guide for 3D printing your very own ‘Gamegirl’ system. 

For this project, they encouraged the use of “raspberry pi and TFT touch screen…since it’s a Raspberry Pi Linux computer, [you] can run different emulators on it…the 3D printed enclosure will house all the components and can be printed in your favorite color.  [You can also] hack an SNES gaming controller and reuse the printed circuit board, buttons, and elastomers.”

As for the 3D printed enclosure: “the project is just two pieces [which are made from PLA plastic that snaps together]!  They are optimized to print on any FDM 3D printer with a minimum build area of 150mm X 150 mm X 100mm.  Perfect for printing [in] your Printrbot, TAZ4, RepRap, or MakerBot.”
