Title: SkunkBox for the SkunkBoard!
Post by: walter_j64bit on August 14, 2018, 20:37:09 PM
OK, I know this one is a "no,no" on an other forum but after sometime of looking at the hacked cart case I've made for my SkunkBoard I'm ready for something that doesn't look so homemade! :lol: It's designed by 10p6 it's the only thing good that came from him.  It didn't come with any screws so I had to use the screws from my DIY cart.

Very nice.  :)  I can't seem to get to that webpage, though.  I keep getting an error message.

Awesome, I slightly changed the link as it was generating an error.

That looks great! If I'm not mistaken, it was made using a 3D printer so were there any obstructions or extra material that needed sanding once it arrived? Heard that was a possibility. Thought about ordering one myself a while back but passed on it. Good to know they're actually selling :D

Yes it's 3D printed. I didn't do all that, I just called to my inner auto mechanic and had the cart together with in 5 minutes.  :o

Those Skunkboard cases look very nice!  I've always used my rev2 board bare, but recently found a clear case for sale on AliExpress (https://www.aliexpress.com/item/H-Clear-Cartridge-Case-Shell-Replacement-for-Atari-Jaguar-Systems-with-2-screws/32863858674.html) (one of the ones sold by SoCal Mike, maybe?) so I ordered one of 'em, knowing full well it'll take some modification to fit.  It's currently making the slow trip from China.  If I had known about these 3D-printed cases a couple weeks ago, I might have gone for this one (https://www.shapeways.com/product/FZUJLHATL/skunkbox-for-skunkboard-rev-2), but even though a carved-up case won't look nearly as nifty, it certainly costs a lot less.

Hey Shinto!  Yes, these are quite nice.  3D printing is always a bit pricey but, if done well, is worth it.
