Micro Arcade Machine Build With 7 Inch Screen

Post by shanet94 » Sun Sep 17, 2017 9:10 am

I have been playing more and more with my laser and cut out this little arcade machine based off a Instructable. I have been modifying it more and more to be a easy to assemble kit. Runs retropie with a 7" lcd. Making a step bigger machine next, one that will hold a 10.4. My end goal is to offer a kit once I get everything 100% to my liking that is a "plug and play" kind of design.

This looks real good! Amazing job!

You have so much space around that PI. I think it would be a lot happier with a bigger heat sink and a fan :)

Check this dual fan out

Yes, we have Roland Versacamms large format printer here so I can make the art too. I just assembled images found online. ;) I have ran photoshop since 1999 so pretty good at it!

the one with lock cams and Black Melamine. Absolutely not worth it. We are ordering a CNC machine to make our own. The back door never fit right so we have to modify it to attach a completely different way and the Melamine just flakes really easy. for what it cost yeah I would look else where. :)
