DIY Minty Boy

Post by chrissiak » Sat Nov 30, 2019 6:04 pm

Sup y'all, so the last post I made was on my DIY MintyPi that I made on a budget (viewtopic.php?t=6578) and I've made a few more projects since then, namely this guy that I created my own PCB and 3D-printed case for. It's all pretty simple but I'm happy with how it all worked out; this was a pretty cheap build too since I had a Pi, charging board, and battery (although a tiny one) lying around. Ordered 5 copies of my PCB for 10 bucks from JLCPCB and used a 3D printer I have accessible to me, and also ordered a screen, buttons, and switches cheap from AliExpress. Again no speaker which isn't an issue for me. Finished product pictures are attached, this is a super great way to learn how to use Altium and Fusion360 too (or whatever programs you want to use).

Attached photos show the size of the build compared to a Game Boy cartridge, as well as the bare PCB. Thanks again to all y'all for the inspiration (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*✲゚*。⋆
