Christopher Tan created Retrocade, a delightful 3D printed arcade machine project that lets users play classic games. He's even releasing the files and instructions.
I always wished I had an arcade machine with real arcade joystick + buttons. Now that I have a 3D printer, I thought I should put it to good use and make myself a desktop arcade machine. I used TinkerCAD to do all the 3D modelling. My printer's bed size is 22cm x 22cm, so I had to break the design down into many pieces. Also, I wanted my arcade machine to have a lot of detail, so I also created things like a faux coin slot, etc.
I will be sharing the files and instructions once I fully complete my build.
