My Raspi-boy

Post by tronicgr » Sun May 28, 2017 8:41 am

Hi all,

I managed to make the Raspi-boy. I wanted something with larger space for battery and Raspberry Pi 3. This case has plenty of space.
The print looks ok, but I'll print it again on the Ultimaker 3 I ordered.

Its based on this design: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2248709

I used a little different parts inside for this great handheld case!

-5 inch LCD HDMI Touch Screen Display Module TFT LCD 800*480 Raspberry Pi

-Raspberry Pi 3

-Adafruit I2S audio amplifier. https://www.adafruit.com/product/3006

-a tiny PSP speaker on the front:

-6Ah lipo battery pack https://www.sparkfun.com/products/13856

-Adafruit Powerboost 1000+ https://www.adafruit.com/product/2465

-Internal USB Flash Disk to store the ROMS in parallel of the SD card.

-Used Pimoroni PICADE scripts for Audio setup and will add some buttons for Volume UP DOWN and Shutdown as well:

Congrats on the build!
It looks really neat.
What are those buttons underneath the start and select?
Are those your shoulder buttons?

Yes these are the shoulder buttons. I used same pcb piece and rubber contact from the original, just normal round gameboy buttons.

But i think when i print it again, I'll place these two buttons on the sides of the enclosure as there is lots of free space and will feel better to use there.

Thanks
