While my two GBZ builds are nearing completion, I began to play around with the next project: Making a portable from scratch based around the potent Orange Pi PC! Because of the size I need to CAD up a new housing, and to support dual analog sticks for N64/PSX etc. I thus decided to go whole hog and put my design skills and training to work. I've gone through several iterations of ergonomic revisions and am very pleased with...the front.
So I went ahead and organized the components with mounting bosses, clips and supports
I based my design around a bigger screen to make for the most appealing interface and efficient use of space and settled on this 5", 800x480 resolution screen. Without being able to find the true dimensions I guessed and when it arrived I found I was only .5mm off!
Now I'm just waiting for my 3D printer to arrive so I can check the dimensions, fit and finish before I finalize it.
