SG-1000 / SC-3000 / Megacart 3D printed cases - Thingiverse
Post Posted: Sun Dec 15, 2019 8:10 pm
Hi All

Great news. 6mmbrx has developed 3D printing files for SG-1000 cartridge cases and has put a version for the Megacart on there too. I haven't tried it myself, but the finish looks pretty good.

He said:
"Depending on the quality, prints of top and bottom shells can take from 6 to 10 hours. I usually print at 0.16mm layer height with a 0.04mm nozzle and prints for this take around 8 hours. The slicer says these use about 60g of filament, you can get 1kg of PLA for $15-20, so each cart will use less than two bucks of filament. No worries using PLA for this. "

So they are slow to print if you are making a lot of them, but the materials cost is fairly low.

I wonder what it would cost to get these printed by a third party service. I seem to recall some of the sites would let you upload a stl file and get an estimate. Has anyone tried that recently?

So you should probably contact 6mmbrx if you ever get grand plans about producing a lot of these :)
