3D Printing

Game Controller Enclosure

The case was designed to be 3D printed but it can also be laser cut or CNC milled out of acrylic. A total of six panels joint together and secured with standoffs and machine screws. The back and left panels feature cut outs for the various ports on the Raspberry Pi.

Case Design

I 3D modeled the enclosure in Autodesk Fusion 360 and designed the panels for 3D printers with dual extrusion tool heads. Each panel has separate pieces that form two-color graphics. 

Dual Extrusion

We used an Ultimaker 3 and Sigma BCN3D 3D printers to produce the parts. They both achieve dual extrusion differently, but render similar results.

Other machines can be used, such as the flashforge creator proPrusa i3 MK2 with Multi Material upgrade kit or the Palette+ from Mosaic Manufactur
