Merry Christmas: Beta 3D Atari Cartridge Files

XF551s

As promised here are the beta 3D Atari Cartridge Files.  I say beta since unfortunately my 3d printer is being cranky and I am not able to print out a prototype.  So I advise you to do that before you send these files for production.  I’m not responsible for that 1500.00 bill from the plastics manufacture.  🙂

Inside the zip file you’ll find the source Solidworks model file, a pdf with the max pcb dimensions, various .jpg views and a .step and .stl versions of the source file.  Your 3d printer should be able to do a resolution of at least 1 mm.  I think I took out any critical less than 1mm dimensions.   This is a generic shell.  I am still working on a shell that will allow a top pass-thru.  It should follow this version closely, but will have some differences of course.

I give you permission to use these files to produce cartridges for commercial sale and private use with the stipulation that you attribute authorship to me and send me 1 complete item you are selling and 1 empty cartridge.  You can modify and distribute these files only if you also include the source zip from me and again attribute me as the source for the modified files.

After a request to add post and hole snap together, I played around and came up with the first modification.  Not sure how well it will work.  Please post any comments to this here.  Changes, requests etc
