This thing looks awesome, how did you get that rough finish on the case?

Thanks! I used a textured PEI steel sheet which gives it that finish and does a pretty good job of hiding the layer lines. :D

Yes. It's a steel sheet that lays on a magnetic bed. Look at the Prusa website and see there MK3 printer.

Very clean!

One small change request if you do intend to sell them: please, please, please update the PCB's directional pad contacts to be like the old NES/SNES/Genesis PCB contacts. This small change should greatly help with games that require precise diagonal inputs.

Compare old style vs new:
